maxmind-geolite-mirror

Mirror maxmind GeoIP version 2 databases from maxmind.com.

Install

npm install -g maxmind-geolite-mirror
mkdir -p /usr/local/share/GeoIP
/usr/local/bin/maxmind-geolite-mirror

The last command will download all the databases to the GeoIP share directory.

Configure

The MaxMind license key must be configured. It can be set by:

  1. editing config.js
  2. setting the environment variable MAXMIND_LICENSE_KEY

If neither is set, the script will emit an error.

Update databases

/usr/local/bin/maxmind-geolite-mirror

Set this to run once a week or so. Downloads happen only when the remote file is newer than the local version.

Custom path to store maxmind database

If access to /usr/local/share/GeoIP is unavailable, the following environment variable is available: MAXMIND_DB_DIR. E.g.

export MAXMIND_DB_DIR=/home/example/maxmind-db
