Basic installation steps for the MetaMod module for Joomla 1.5.x, and (optionally) GeoIP databases.

1. Install the mod_metamod basic package

Install the package into Joomla! in the usual way:
  1. In the Administrator back-end of your site, click on the “Extensions–>Install/Uninstall” menu
  2. Click on “Choose File”, select the file,
  3. Click on “Upload File and Install”.

2. (optional, for GeoIP functionality) 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.
