Adding a mirror

If you would like to provide a new mirror of MacPorts content, please see Mirroring.

Portfiles

Portfiles are normally retrieved with port sync or port selfupdate. The URL used to get Portfiles is set in ${prefix}/etc/macports/sources.conf. The current list of mirrors is:

Distfiles

Distfiles (“distribution files”) contain the source code for ports. They are usually retrieved from the project's site or one of their mirrors. The MacPorts project further mirrors the distfiles in one location. The following mirrors are queried automatically by MacPorts.

MacPorts Source

MacPorts is updated during port selfupdate by checking the version on the rsync server. You can point your installation at a closer mirror listed below by changing the two options, rsync_server and rsync_dir, in ${prefix}/etc/macports/macports.conf.

Footnotes

Keyword Description
partial Due to size constraints, this location might not mirror all content, but selectively delete data or choose not to mirror it. Most often, care is taken to only exclude non-recent data (e.g., packages or distfiles for older versions of ports) or data destined for deprecated platforms.
