httpupdate mirror torrent style
I have trouble updating the server. As its just too slow, but the "hoster" using cPanel as their control panel is rising and i think the update server is just too slow or too far from the "hoster"'s server.
Why dont we make some solution to make our server as "torrent seed". maybe the initial install time is longer. but you are contributing to another "hoster" as their seed. maybe this feature is optional and can be disabled for some "hoster" who doesn't want to spend their network resources as the mirror(for new install and/or update). maybe on the "inside", there is 2 packages. 1 is used as the production host. 1 is vanilla cPanel packages(in form of compressed file maybe?) that we cant directly edit or modify.its kind of "don't touch" package.so we don't need to depend on httpupdate.cpanel.net mirror, but we can choose any server using cPanel near you.
simply said, who own or use cPanel as their web host control panel, and they enable "seed" feature, they will act as httpupdate mirror. no need to be a partner. no need to get slow updates or un-maintained httpupdate mirror. if they didnt have the latest packages, try another mirror(automatically).
maybe this feature will speed up your cPanel server updates.
