This article describes building an internal <application>FreeBSD Update Server</application>. The <link xlink:href="">freebsd-update-server</link> is written by Colin Percival <email></email>, Security Officer Emeritus of FreeBSD. For users that think it is convenient to update their systems against an official update server, building their own <application>FreeBSD Update Server</application> may help to extend its functionality by supporting manually-tweaked FreeBSD releases or by providing a local mirror that will allow faster updates for a number of machines.
This article was subsequently printed at <link xlink:href="">BSD Magazine</link>.
Experienced users or administrators are often responsible for several machines or environments. They understand the difficult demands and challenges of maintaining such an infrastructure. Running a <application>FreeBSD Update Server</application> makes it easier to deploy security and software patches to selected test machines before rolling them out to production. It also means a number of systems can be updated from the local network rather than a potentially slower Internet connection. This article outlines the steps involved in creating an internal <application>FreeBSD Update Server</application>.
To build an internal <application>FreeBSD Update Server</application> some requirements should be met.
A running FreeBSD system.
At a minimum, updates require building on a FreeBSD release greater than or equal to the target release version for distribution.
A user account with at least 4 GB of available space. This will allow the creation of updates for 7.1 and 7.2, but the exact space requirements may change from version to version.
An <citerefentry><refentrytitle>ssh</refentrytitle><manvolnum>1</manvolnum></citerefentry> account on a remote machine to upload distributed updates.
A web server, like <link xlink:href="@@URL_RELPREFIX@@/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/network-apache.html">Apache</link>, with over half of the space required for the build. For instance, test builds for 7.1 and 7.2 consume a total amount of 4 GB, and the webserver space needed to distribute these updates is 2.6 GB.
Basic knowledge of shell scripting with Bourne shell, <citerefentry><refentrytitle>sh</refentrytitle><manvolnum>1</manvolnum></citerefentry>.
