rsync to bakup server

In an attempt to copy a particular directory or file from the "primary"
server to the "backup" server - it looks as though rsync is wanting to work,
but nothing is copied.
primary - 10.28.123.232
backup - 10.28.123.230
rsyncd.conf file (on primary server)
uid = 0
gid = 0
use chroot = no
max connections = 4
syslog facility = local5
pid file = /var/run/rsyncd.pid
read only = true
list = false
hosts allow = 10.28.123.230
path = /etc
comment = system config files
path = /var/www
comment = web files
While on the backup machine, I run the following command
[root at fedora-backup root]# rsync -rv 10.28.123.232::web
and it produces the following:
-rw-r--r-- 4629 2004/05/07 02:21:08 manual/platform/index.html.en
-rw-r--r-- 4482 2003/10/14 16:14:08 wordtrans/wordtrans.php
wrote 57 bytes read 19817 bytes 39748.00 bytes/sec
total size is 8261724 speedup is 415.71
[root at fedora-backup root]#
Now, I put a file in the /var/www/html directory of the Primary server - but
it never seems to get transfered to the backup server. I even put that same
file in the /var/www directory thinking it was only looking there - to no
Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong? I'd just like to get the new or
changed information from the primary server to the backup server.
