Just copy all files to your Magento installation respecting directory structure. Make sure your `var` directory is writable by web-server user (by default it should be). If you want GeoIP database to be updated automatically make sure your Magento cron-job is set up and running. Logging out and in is not required.Configuration
After installation a new field will be added to System\Configuration\General\General\Countries Options group indicating the date of last database update and the button to force synchronization. Note that frequent synchronizations will result you being banned at MaxMind server for several hours. MaxMind GeoIP Lite database is updated on first Thursday of the month so if you have have Magento cron-job running you will not need to force synchronization anymore but on the first run.Usage
This extension only adds MaxMind GeoIP Lite database to your Magento installation and maintains its updates. It desn't do anything else out of the box (yet). However if comes with a set of methods you can implement in your template or extension. See usage examples here.
Please note that `geoip/country` is initialized at each Magento load so in order to save system resources please always use it as a singleton.
The list of allowed countries is initially populated from System\Configuration\General\General\Countries Options\Allowed Countries multi-select field of your Magento configuration. The `addAllowedCountry` method is not adding country to system configuration but adds it to internal list extension uses for `isCountryAllowed` method.Github
Latest source code of the extension can be browsed at Github. Here is the repository. Pull requests are always welcomed.Credits
Thanks a lot to MaxMind for providing a free database. Additionally this extension partly uses the code from MaxMind GeoIP PHP API.
