[arch-general] HTTP Custom Mirror on Install

I tried http://ip/archlinux/$repo/os/$arch , but pacman says it cannot find them the different tar.gz files to download, but once I install Arch, and add the mirror to mirrorlist as Server = http://ip/archlinux/$repo/os/$arch it works great.

Will keep trying to get it work :).

There are no limitations on the protocol used, as long as the program used for the downloading supports it.
By default atleas ftp, http and local repositories are supported.
