If tug.org is down, where can I download/update TeX-Live?

    There are mirrors of CTAN (which includes TeX Live all over the world)

never download tex live from tug.org (it's a source not an archive). don't download tex live from dante or cambridge; we both have bandwidth allowance calculated to support mirroring only.

download tex live from


no other url.

  • Does it have the windows installer? (I can't find it at the moment on tug website. Btw - is it just me, or is tug's website the worst simplest website in the world? I mean it just has to provide 2 Download Links: Linux and Windows.) Jun 23, 2012 at 14:18

tug.org may be offline at the moment due to power management work at Aarhus University (where tug.org is hosted). Should be up again during the weekend
