#3150 closed defect (invalid)

loader_generate_script refers to out-of-date census FTP url

Reported by: aaryno Owned by: robe
Priority: medium Milestone: PostGIS 2.1.8
Component: tiger geocoder Version: 2.1.x
Keywords: loader_generate_script, ftp, http, wget Cc:


US Census appears to have changed the url to a port 80, although the relative paths remain the same. Since wget does not support wildcards as written, the wget options need to be modified.

This is the wget as generated for state PA: wget*_42_*

and output: Resolving, 2610:20:2010:a09:1000:0:9481:4b23 Connecting to||:21... failed: Connection refused.

I found this to work: wget -r -l1 -np "" -P /geo/tiger/TIGER2013/PLACE -A "tl_*_42_*"

This is using POSTGIS="2.1.7 r13414"
