ClamAV Signature Mirroring Tool

Project description

Why

The existing clamdownloader.pl script does not have any error correction it simply bails out if a downloaded file is not valid and is unable to retry different mirrors if one fails.

This script will retry if a download fails with an http code that is not 404, it will connect to another mirror if retries fail or file not found or if the downloaded file is invalid.

It has options to set the locations for the working and mirror directory as well as user/group ownership for the downloaded files. It uses locking to prevent multiple instances from running at the same time.
