Mirrors

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:

Location URL Admin
USA, CA rsync://rsync.macports.org/release/ports/ admin@…
Norway, Trondheim rsync://trd.no.rsync.macports.org/release/ports/ somaen@…
Sweden, Stockholm rsync://arn.se.rsync.macports.org/release/ports/ david@…

Distfiles

Distfiles are the archives containing the source code for port. They are usually retrieved from the project's site or of their mirrors. The MacPorts project further mirrors the distfiles in one location. The following mirrors are queried automatically by MacPorts.

Location URL Admin
USA, CA http://distfiles.macports.org admin@…
Norway, Trondheim http://trd.no.distfiles.macports.org somaen@…
Sweden, Stockholm http://arn.se.distfiles.macports.org david@…

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.

Location rsync_server rsync_dir Admin
USA, CA rsync.macports.org release/base/ admin@…
Norway, Trondheim trd.no.rsync.macports.org release/base/ somaen@…
