Mirrors


Just wondering (and cant seem to find any info on it), how would i go about setting up a mirror of my website? Obviously would be using rsync/ssh for keeping files up to date, but how would i go about setting up a script to have the site use the fastest mirror?

thats actually quite a bit of help, however I'm looking for the specific way to get my site to pick which mirror to use...
Say I have 2 computer, both hosting the exact same information. When person A connects, it checks which server is a quicker connection, and then grabs all the info from that server...
Opposed to having all the traffic go to one server, the client checks which is quicker then connects to that one...
Is this more of a PHP script question?

if you are using linux servers...you can trying pinging the client and then checking which server will give u a faster speed.
this may take a while though since pinging a server usually takes a while.
