W3C Jigsaw

All resources All frames


This frameclass allows you to mirror any existing site. It works by using the caching module of Jigsaw and by using a different lookup strategy for the cached resource. It will handle redirections too, so that if the origin server emits a redirection to an URL that it holds, then the mirror resource will rewrite the redirection and hand it out as being the target of the relocation.

Warning: because this resource really does what it claims to do, it should always be used in conjunction with the VirtualHostFrame. As Jigsaw will mirror a given site, it will no longer export the Admin directory, hence were you not to use the virtual host handling the configuration would no longer be accessible.
