Odd error when enabling GeoIP lite or free in metamod

Odd error when enabling GeoIP lite or free in metamod

Hi,
I'm a metamod newbie. I disabled AMM and I publish a metamod module.

BUT whenever I enable GEOIP lite or free I get a blank page.

When I select the commercial version (i don't have the license) I get:
MetaMod debug info:
Module ID: 310
$option: com_community
$view: frontpage
$id:
$Itemid: 25
$timezone: UTC
$language: es-419
$language_code: es
$language_region:
ERROR: cannot locate GeoIP data file in any standard location. Disabling GeoIP.
Country: GB
Country Name: United Kingdom
Including modules: Ninguno

My problem is that what I want is the Geoip capability of metamod/chamaleon to show modules/menus acording to the users country.

Best regards,
Carla

Re: Odd error when enabling GeoIP lite or free in metamod

Hi Carla,

Good news: you don't need the Pro version. Your issue is just a matter of downloading and installing the latest version of the MaxMind GeoIP databases.

There are instructions on how to do that here:

http://www.metamodpro.com/metamod/installation

(see the 2nd section, on installing the GeoIP databases).

Best regards,
Stephen
