Problem with uploading GeoLite City Database

Problem with uploading GeoLite City Database

Hi

I have just purchased Chameleon and in trying to load the GeoLite City database I am getting the following error;

Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in .../administrator/components/com_chameleon/controllers/config.php on line 92

Had a quick peak through the forum but couldn't find any similar postings.

Any advice...?

Cheers

Robbie

Re: Problem with uploading GeoLite City Database

Hi Robbie,

I've found recently that the MaxMind server is sometimes extremely slow, so the downloads can take more than 30 seconds and time out... this is a real pain. The download speed can also obviously be affected by the speed of the link between your site and MaxMind - e.g. if you're running on a test server on a slow link then there's more chance of a timeout.

What to do about it: on the page where you click the button to do the download, it also tells you the path on your server where the file will be stored: "GeoLiteCity.dat location:" ... and the path on the server where it should go.

It also tells you where the file can be downloaded from:

http://geolite.maxmind.com/download/geo … ity.dat.gz

So you can do the download manually and add it to the site via SFTP etc.

Just bear in mind that after you have downloaded the file, you need to unzip it before moving it onto the server. After unzipping, the file will be named GeoLiteCity.dat instead of GeoLiteCity.dat.gz

Hope that helps,
Stephen
