Introducing an auto update of the server#
After a 2-month test phase our server will now update all generated maps and the Covid-19 data as well as the REST-API cache every day at 10:00 CET/CEST (8:00 UTC during the summer and 9:00 UTC during the winter). This will take roughly 5 minutes. As we check for the date and as the WHO and OWID update their data typically around 9:00 CET it may result in invalid values when you call our web server between 0:00 and 9:00 CET. Keep that in mind when you access the data on our server.
Source code on GitHub#
With this change we also updated the code on GitHub. There you will find a package of the source code of version v6.1.0. Let us know if you are interested to get a copy of our Docker files to install your own server.
