To Install GeoIP on Linux Virtual Private Server (VPS) follow the following commands :

[root@vm1]# cd /usr/local/src
    [root@vm1]# wget http://geolite.maxmind.com/download/geoip/api/c/GeoIP-1.4.8.tar.gz
    [root@vm1]# tar -xzvf GeoIP-1.4.8.tar.gz
    [root@vm1]# cd GeoIP-1.4.8
    [root@vm1]# ./configure
    [root@vm1]# make
    [root@vm1]# make install
    [root@vm1]# echo ‘/usr/local/lib ‘ > /etc/ld.so.conf.d/geio.conf
    [root@vm1]# ldconfig
    [root@vm1]# cd ..

Now lets install module mod_geoip2

[root@vm1]# wget http://geolite.maxmind.com/download/geoip/api/mod_geoip2/mod_geoip2_1.2.7.tar.gz
    [root@vm1]# tar -zxvf mod_geoip2_1.2.7.tar.gz
    [root@vm1]# cd mod_geoip2_1.2.7/
    [root@vm1]# /usr/local/apache/bin/apxs -lGeoIP -cia mod_geoip.c

Now Verify the following configuration files to have proper configurations

[root@vm1]# vi /usr/local/apache/conf/includes/pre_main_global.conf
    [root@vm1]# vi /usr/local/apache/conf/geoip.conf

 

If the server is plesk and you are not able to run the command make and apxs then use

    [root@vm1]#yum install libtool ( If make  gives you error )

    [root@vm1]# updatedb; locate apxs | grep bin (To lcaote if you have the command apxs)

    [root@vm1]# yum install httpd-devel ( If apxs is not present )

 

Thanks,
