How to install GeoIP and mod_geoip2 on centos for apache

1) yum install GeoIP GeoIP-devel GeoIP-data zlib-devel

2) mkdir /usr/local/share/GeoIP

3) Download the latest Country and City database files from maxmind

cd /usr/local/share/GeoIP
wget http://geolite.maxmind.com/download/geoip/database/GeoLiteCountry/GeoIP.dat.gz
wget http://geolite.maxmind.com/download/geoip/database/GeoLiteCity.dat.gz
gunzip GeoIP.dat.gz
gunzip GeoLiteCity.dat.gz

4) yum install httpd-devel apr-devel

5) wget http://geolite.maxmind.com/download/geoip/api/mod_geoip2/

6) tar xvzf mod_geoip2_1.2.5.tar.gz && cd mod_geoip2_1.2.5

7) apxs -i -a -L/usr/lib64 -I/usr/include -lGeoIP -c mod_geoip.c

8) Enabling mod-geoip
Nothing’s going to work unless mod-geoip is enabled in your apache configuration. You’ll need the following lines in your httpd.conf file (located on CentOS systems at /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf)

<IfModule mod_geoip.c>
GeoIPEnable On
GeoIPDBFile /usr/local/share/GeoIP/GeoIP.dat Standard
GeoIPDBFile /usr/local/share/GeoIP/GeoLiteCity.dat Standard
</IfModule>

9) Restart Apache so your changes will take effect by entering the following command.

#/etc/init.d/httpd restart

10) /usr/local/bin/geoipupdate
