How to setup GeoIP City database
Posted by Antoine R on 18 August 2011 09:11 AM

If you need to see states, cities, zip codes in order view and at "customer online" page and switch based on countries' regions, you should install GeoIP City database first:

  1. Download the "GeoLite City" database in binary format from Maxmind website (GeoLite Databases)
  2. Unpack it on your computer
  3. Upload it to the folder "lib/GeoIP/"
  4. Go to Magento back-end - System - Configurations - MAGEWORX tab - Customers - GeoIP Database section - change "Database Type" to "GeoIP City"
  5. Change "Database Path" to "lib/GeoIP/GeoLiteCity.dat".
