This is an apache2 module for finding the country that a web request originated from. It uses the GeoIP library and database to perform the lookup.This module only works on Apache 2.0.x servers.
First you need to make sure you have apache2 server installed and working fine.
Installing mod_geoip in Debian etch using the following command
#aptitude install libapache2-mod-geoip
This will complete the installation
Now you need to open /etc/apache2/mods-available/geoip.conf file and uncomment the GeoIPDBFile line so that the file looks as follows
Now you need to restart Apache using the following command
To see if mod_geoip is working correctly, we can create a small PHP file in one of our web spaces (e.g. /var/www):
add the following lines and save the file
open browser http://serverip/geoiptest.php, and it should display your country.
