I was using the OSM Boundaries website to download shpfiles of boundaries and using them in QGIS:

Today, when I was attempted to access this website I get this message and I get the same result from the Wiki link.

I did not get this message from other OSM website, like this one that have shpfile of big cites around the world. Can anyone help? Thanks

  • If so we need to wait for them to fix it? Commented Jul 7, 2017 at 12:22
  • I think yes, most likely they know... Commented Jul 7, 2017 at 12:28
  • You can always add an exception in your browser or try the http version?

Please have a look at this thread.

As well as I understand, the maintainer will shutdown this domain.
One shoud use https://wambachers-osm.website/boundaries/ instead.
