Installation

(0 votes, average 0 out of 5)
Note: this page describes the installation for MetaMod 1.0, on Joomla 1.0 only. For installation instructions for Joomla 1.5, see here.
This document contains basic installation steps for the MetaMod module for Joomla 1.0.x, and (optionally) GeoIP databases.

1. mod_metamod basic package

Install the mod_metamod.zip package into Joomla! in the usual way:
  1. in the administrator menu, click on “Installers–>Modules”
  2. click on “Choose File”, select the mod_metamod.zip file,
  3. then click on “Upload File and Install”.

2. GeoIP Country/City database

  • Download the MaxMind GeoLite Country database, uncompress it (it's in gz format), then place it at the location {joomla_site_root}/geoip/GeoIP.dat in the Joomla installation on your web server (you will usually require an FTP or SFTP client to upload this to your site).
  • For even more power, download the Maxmind GeoLite City database, and install it at {joomla_site_root}geoip/GeoLiteCity.dat. This gives you the ability to make module rules based on the city/state/county/area code/postal code/latitude/longitude of the person viewing the site.

3. (optional) Install some Joomla! patches to help MetaMod

see this page for information on the Joomla patches (for Joomla 1.0 only — not required for Joomla 1.5 or above).
