    Does rsync have root privileges? Otherwise you'll get lots of permission denied errors.

    Do you run the rsync command as root or as another user?

    I strictly followed the tutorial "Mirror Your Web Site With rsync".
    So when i get to point "6 Test rsync On mirror.example.com", as root, a issued the command,
    i get several lines like This,
