Installing GeoIP databases

(0 votes, average 0 out of 5)

You only need to do this if you want to use GeoIP Country or City/region detection in your Chameleon rules.

1. Click on the “Components -> Chameleon -> Configuration” menu

chameleon-configuration

2. Before you install the databases, you will see the following screen. Check to ensure that the folders are writable:

download-databases

3. Click on the download links for GeoLite Country and/or GeoLite City.

Note: the GeoLite City database is large and can take a while to download to the Joomla site.

4. Once the database(s) have been downloaded, the configuration screen should look like this:

downloaded-databases

5. New GeoLite City and GeoLite Country databases are issued from MaxMind on the 1st day of every month.

If you are relying on the accuracy of these databases, then you should go to this screen regularly to download the most recent versions. The “age (days)” column tells you how long ago you last downloaded the databases.
