Welcome to the geofictician wiki.
This is the OGFMirror project page.
The OGFMirror project is intended to provide a failsafe backup alternative to the opengeofiction.net (OGF) website, which has suffered from unreliability and an owner who is no longer engaged in day-to-day maintenance.
The principle behind the OGFMirror is as follows: provide a website that is "live" with OGF data and functionality, but that is in a holding pattern (i.e. it is not editable). But in the event that the OGF website stops functioning, the OGFMirror could essentially become a replacement for OGF, with all the same data, functionality and membership.
I have blogged about this process here.
Current expenses are as follows:
- ogfdev server (for the apidb i.e. "Rails Port"): $160 / month
- tiles04 server (for the renders i.e. ogf-carto, ogf-topo): $80 / month
- ogfoverpass server (for ogfoverpass and ogfturbo): $80 / month
These servers above will be consolidated and costs will go down once the development process is complete and successful.
If you want to support these efforts financially, I am accepting donations here.
