Have a look at the excellent Client_Server product. It allows you to export
chunks of objects from one to another.
- write a script that each evening
- gets a list of every object in the data.fs and its
- runs export on each of those objects from A - B.

Subject: [Zope] How to maintain an up-to-date mirror site in Zope?
(not-so-newbie question!) question!)
> Here is the situation, can you offer advice?
> Machine A is running a Zope server for a wide-area network in Company A.
> This is an Intranet site which changes regularly.
> Machine B serves a separate wide-area network in Company B, and Company B
> employees need access to Company A's intranet.
> The link between Machine A and Machine B is too slow/low-bandwidth for all
> of company B's employees to access A's intranet directly.
> Therefore we want to have a Zope server on Machine B with a mirror copy of
> the Company A intranet.
> The problem is, how can we keep this mirror copy updated on a daily basis?
> Ideally we need an automatic process to run each night and update the
> on B.
> The ideas I had were :
> 1) stop B's Zope server, copy across data.fs and restart B. But can this
> done automatically?
> 2) somehow keep a log of changes made in A, and at the end of day, export
> the changed files, import them on B, overwriting the originals. Can this
> done in Zope code? Can this be automated?
> Does anyone have any thoughts/opinions on these ideas? Or does anyone know
> of a better way, perhaps an existing Zope package or solution?
> Thanks again,
