maxmind-update update

Force an update of the MaxMind database.


The MaxMind update module will update the database based on the interval you specifed in the configuration. You can also force an update that will run immediately.


In this example, we want to force an update of the database.

$ echo "maxmind-update force-update" | \
   sudo socat stdio unix-connect:/var/run/hapee-2.2/hapee-lb.sock
MaxMindDb: forcing update now

You can check the status of the update using the maxmind-update status command. Note that while the update is processing, the status will show the progress:

$ echo "maxmind-update status" | \
   sudo socat stdio unix-connect:/var/run/hapee-2.2/hapee-lb.sock
