Rsync or what ever 101

I have a directory that is correctly setup up on   /home/timfox123/repo

I want to duplicate that to   /home/timfox123/repo

I am going to need to do this for every server I build so I need to have it simple, and to copies with the directorates / rights and the likes.

This is linux ( ubuntu )   current version

did you try a basic rsync -avz command from source to destination? if not why and if so what didn't work? should be fairly basic.
