Recently my friends and i decided to slowly move to renting a virtual server running Debian 8 64 bit with sufficient hardware for multi-server-hosting (mostly TS3, apache2 & gmod server).
I’ve put root server in the title because “vServer” or “virtual server” might confuse some people and root server is more clear and there is no technical difference between root and virtual except one is well… virtual and by that usually more limited in terms of performance.
Anyway i’m working on the gmod server and previously we had a webspace that hosted a website i put up for all information like resources and steam links etc. and ofcourse the FastDL for the current gmod server. However considering that soon everything will run off of one system it’s not very efficient to have all .bz2 files twice on the system.
So is there a way to either use the gmod server files using http as the FastDL or to have some redirection of some sort in order to save the storage for the duplicates?
I’m mostly concerned about maps if that makes things easier, i’m used to building the FastDL myself anyway and addons and such don’t use up a lot of space.
