mod_maxmind configuration
« on: April 04, 2018, 08:48:24 PM »

We give ONLY enough info in the readme file to get started with using Maxmind's Country database. I personally like to see the cities as well, not that the free City DB is very accurate I still get an idea of where in the country a user is from. Why do I like this you ask? I see it as free geography lessons :)

Maxmind has 3 free databases available, Country, City and ASN (autonomous system number). They can be obtained from Maxmind. These days you must obtain an account to download the databases. You can downloaded the GeoLite2 databases for free. They are updated at least monthly.

I decided to add the ASN data for the fun of it and ran into the same exact problem I ran up against with the City DB a few years ago, there is little to no information on how to use these databases. I figured it out by looking at what little examples I could find and inside the DBs themselves.

If you download any one of the CVS databases the layout is specified on the first line. But since I have already done this work, and looking at what little info we include in the readme, I figure I'll just post all the possible configurations for the various databases available.

Country Database

There are only the two possibilities already included in the readme that comes with the module.

ASN Database

MaxMindDBEnv MM_ASN ASN_DB/autonomous_system_number
MaxMindDBEnv MM_ASORG ASN_DB/autonomous_system_organization

They have non-free databases and if you chose to use them you can use this information and CVS versions of the database to figure out how in the heck to get the info out. Of course I'm sure if your paying they should tell you what you need.

Edit 2020/03/30: Updated some old info, added link to DBs.
