I have my own OSM server which is updating every few minutes in shyncrony with OSM original servers, using a PostGIS database and rendering with renderd.

I can see offline downloaded maps through an Apache server (using OpenLayers).

I would like to use this database as a repository for Maps.me, but, the format of these maps is .mwm, while mines are stored in database, and, the downloaded raw data maps are .osm.pbf files.

Is PostGIS database useless for this purpose?
Or do I have to convert the .osm.pbf files into .mwm format files?

If u want to upload data in.mvm or other format, use this manual learnosm.org/en/osm-data/geofabrik-and-hot-export/. But it not sync data from OSM.
