We're transitioning to R2 presigned URLs

I just got an email from maxmind with subject:

“We’re transitioning to R2 presigned URLs”

As of Wednesday, May 1, 2024, all MaxMind database downloads will redirect to R2 presigned URLs. We are making this change in order to increase the security and reliability of our services.

This is a potentially breaking change. Please ensure your downloading HTTP client is configured to follow redirects and can connect to the following hostname:


We recommend confirming the above as early as possible.

You do not need to change the URL you download from. Existing permalinks will continue to work.

I tried to contact them and they deferred to mautic saying they had no part in the integration between maxmind and mautic.
Just wondering if there is any action to be taken on my end or not.

I have raised a PR Add allow redirect option to get request by dadarya0 · Pull Request #13560 · mautic/mautic · GitHub for changes from MaxMind.

PR is ready-for-review
