Private key limit too low for keeping mirror updated?

Post by moritz »

Hey,

I know that you recommend setting up a mirror once using the JSON-dump of the database and then using the public key to have users update their data.

However, I was thinking to run my own mirror and keep it updated, while having users contact my own API. This would also reduce the load on your server.
So basically:
Lots of requests: My users -> My server
Only once or twice a day: my server -> your server

But when doing this, the private key will reach its limit within the first year of doing updates if I update daily. Is there any way around that or should I have users contact your API directly instead of mine?

Hello.

Private key, JSON and SQL dumps were made to create initial mirror while public key was made to keep mirror updated. Public key has limit per IP (remaining_monthly_allowance). This limit resets each month (allowance_refresh_timer).

Ah, got it. So after initial mirror, I should just use the Public key on my server. It has a fixed IP, but because it gets refreshed every month, that will be enough.

Thanks for the quick clarification! :)
