CoalaWeb Traffic GEO Update

GEO database access now requires a user account.

CoalaWeb Traffic GEO Update

MaxMind as of December 30 2019 has made changes to the way users can access their GeoLite2 databases which will now require users to to create an account.

Below is a quote from their blog post found Here.

Starting December 30, 2019, we will be requiring users of our GeoLite2 databases to register for a MaxMind account and obtain a license key in order to download GeoLite2 databases. We will continue to offer the GeoLite2 databases without charge, and with the ability to redistribute with proper attribution and in compliance with privacy regulations. In addition, we are introducing a new end-user license agreement to govern your use of the GeoLite2 databases. Previously, GeoLite2 databases were accessible for download to the public on our developer website and were licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International License.

We are currently running tests to work out the best way to deal with these changes in regards to the CoalaWeb Traffic extension and will keep our users up to date through our social media accounts.

Extra Information

We are also looking into including a new option for Pro subscribers which will allow them to use the Free API provided by ipstack which includes up to 10.000 requests a month.
