Making a New Mirror


First-time Setup

If you would like to make your own copy of The Nine Planets I am happy for you to do so provided that you do not modify it or remove my name from the bottom of each page. A local copy will work fine on a machine without an Internet connection so long as you don't try to follow external links. Here's all you have to do:
  1. Make a new empty directory; you'll need about 9 megabytes;
  2. Download http://nineplanets.org/nineplanets.zip;
  3. Extract the archive with gunzip and tar;
  4. Make sure the ownership and permissions are OK for public read-only access;
  5. Point your WWW browser at your new copy sure that everything is OK;
  6. Send some mail to me (solar@nineplanets.org) with the URL of your new copy and its physical location so I can update the mirror list; also let me know if you would like to receive email notifications of future updates.
  7. If you want it to be public then announce it to the world.
