    You have to have the sites/example directory mirrored
    Definitions
  • *newsite* - name of the new site you are making
  • *basedir* - Directory where you have your distribution mirrored
    example - /mnt/src/sl/53/i386/
    Steps
  1. cd *basedir*/sites
  2. cp -rp example *newsite*
  3. More Detailed Steps
