Rsync not updating
Since a --link-dest run is copied into a new directory hierarchy (when it is used properly), using --ignore existing will ensure that the already-handled files don't get tweaked (which avoids a change in permissions on the hard-linked files).This does mean that this option is only looking at the existing files in the destination hierarchy itself.
- Never change a platform - rather create a new one and migrate If you think --update is not the best for the broad users ( i expect it thiouh ), we could simply take it in as a configuration? So people could activate compress or other stuff (if needed). -u, --update This forces rsync to skip any files which exist on the destination and have a modified time that is newer than the source file.(If an existing destination file has a modification time equal to the source files, it will be updated if the sizes are different.) Note that this does not affect the copying of symlinks or other special files.Also, a difference of file format between the sender and receiver is always considered to be important enough for an update, no matter what date is on the objects.well, your q flag is probably suppressing any messages that might tell you what's going on.also, r is redundant, because a implies r (and a bunch of others). try this command, and then take out the P (show progress) if you don't want it.Since I am much more comfortable with Mac and Linux (and since the Windows availability hours are limited), I do my work on my Mac laptop.
I auto-mounted my NTFS directories, but there's something flaky with their LAN, so that quite often some apps have read-only access or no access at all.
In other words, if the source has a directory where the destination has a file, the transfer would occur regardless of the timestamps.
This option is a transfer rule, not an exclude, so it doesnt affect the data that goes into the file-lists, and thus it doesnt affect deletions. rsync://[[email protected]]HOST[ORT]/SRC [DEST] The ':' usages connect via remote shell, while '::' & 'rsync://' usages connect to an rsync daemon, and require SRC or DEST to start with a module name.
Consequently, I work in a local copy and frequently reports updates all the way down the subdir tree. BUT, since then, it happens EVERY time, whether logged into Windows or not.
It's not major—finishes in seconds—but it's still pretty weird. I noticed it was updating unvisited directories again, and I immediately repeated the rsync command. Then I logged into the windows machine while repeating rsync on the Mac. Even if the rsync commands are only a second apart.
And you could cause problems with this by updating a module on the remote platform (maybe drop a column in the db or something), do a migrate, and if the new target platform doesn't have those code changes, it could cause php exceptions.
