Mirror sync

This is a script that runs hourly to sync the mirror contents to S3.

WARNING: GOV.UK mirror synchronisation failed.

Check the logs for any errors.

grep govuk_sync_mirror /var/log/syslog

Try running the script manually. It doesn’t normally produce any output; you will need to check /var/log/syslog for this. You may want to run the following in a screen session (can take ages).

# Switch to the right user
sudo su - govuk-crawler

# Double check the command
crontab -l

# Run the command from the output
