Write every cities

Write every cities

Hello thar,

First of all awesome module it's was I've been looking for BUT I would like to be able to write in a .txt for exemple every Ip + city + provider im using the GeoLiteCity the only problem is that it not really accurate. Since it's using de ISP location insted of the real person location... Like my self im from Drummondville but it shows the City has another one because it uses my provider city.

I want to use Metamod to do some targeted publicity on a website by city or regions that I decided. to help me out with the city I would like to monitors the isp and city and ip so maybe I can do it with range ip rather than direct cities. So if I could do it via recipes OR modify the helper.php directly... I don't know

Re: Write every cities

Ooh, LiThiuM, you're going to find this very tough! It would be a huge job to try to map all the IP addresses yourself. The free GeoLite City database is supposed to be about 79% accurate for cities in the USA, and the commercial version about 83% accurate for cities in the USA. So you'll really struggle to get better than that. It's a very very tough task. See http://www.maxmind.com/app/geolitecity for a comparison of MaxMind's databases.

Maybe there are other GeoIP location providers that have better databases than MaxMind. If you can find one, please let me know and I'll consider including it in MetaMod like the MaxMind ones.

Sorry I can't offer you much hope,
Stephen

Re: Write every cities

thanks for the reply, but your mod already do what I want to do when in debug mod... I would want to be able to write the result in a .txt without seeing the debug option...

Re: Write every cities

Exactly which information do you want to log into a txt file? It's not hard to use the PHP box to do anything you like in PHP. Writing to a log file is easy enough.
