wordpress Hosting

1. mkdir /home/uruser/geoip
cd /home/uruser/geoip

2. Download and install library:

wget http://www.maxmind.com/download/geoip/api/…/c/GeoIP.tar.gz

http://www.maxmind.com/download/geoip/api/c/GeoIP-1.3.4.tar.gz

tar xzfv GeoIP.tar.gz

cd GeoIP*

./configure
make
make check
make install

cd ..

3. Download and build module:

mkdir mod_geoip
cd mod_geoip

wget http://www.maxmind.com/download/geoip/api/mod_geoip/mod_geoip_1.2.9.tar.gz

Download: http://www.maxmind.com/download/geoip/api/mod_geoip/

wget http://www.maxmind.com/download/geoip/api/mod_geoip/mod_geoip_1.2.9.tar.gz

tar xzfv mod_geoip_1.1.1.tar.gz

cd mod_geoip_1.1.1

/usr/local/apache/bin/apxs  -cia -I/usr/local/include -L/usr/local/lib -lGeoIP mod_geoip.c

4. Add /usr/local/lib as a loadable dynamic link:

edit /etc/ld.so.conf and add /usr/local/lib at the bottom so it looks like this:

/usr/kerberos/lib
/usr/lib/mysql
/usr/X11R6/lib
/usr/local/lib

Then execute /sbin/ldconfig /etc/ld.so.conf

5. Review httpd.conf . You should have seen a backup of the httpd.conf has been made when building the module as mod_geoip info has been inserted.

You’ll find 2 lines inserted about mod_geoip.
First one:

LoadModule geoip_module lib/apache/mod_geoip.so

change to

LoadModule geoip_module /usr/lib/apache/mod_geoip.so

Add below that line:

GeoIPEnable On

the the second line is OK … just move it to the AddModule section to keep httpd.conf pretty:)

AddModule mod_geoip.c

6. Go and restart Apache and you should not get any error.
service httpd restart.
