PKG Mirror Locations

Post by thorjeus » Sun Oct 27, 2019 7:40 am

Hi,

I'm trying to upgrade my ghostbsd, but the speed is quite slow. Does anyone can inform me the closest mirror location in Asia, my location is in Singapore.

Thanks & Regards.

I'm in Europe. So, how do I tell the system I want to use the server in France?
Which file I have to change?

Thanks and regards
