in thread Help with Geo::IP output

Ok I'm getting close.

I created a directory called "dat" (/home/user/dat) and ran the command from the "dat" directory. I got the error message:

geoip --fetch --DB=dbi:SQLite:dbname=geoip.db No license key in config file Issuing rollback() due to DESTROY without explicit disconnect() of DBD +::SQLite::db handle dbname=geoip.db at /home/user/perl5/bin/geoip lin +e 229

So I went to get my license key and wrote the two lines in a file and saved it as geoip.rc (as well as geoip):

license-id : myID icense-key : MyLicenseKey

Then I uploaded geoip.rc to "/home/" and ran the command. I got the same error message. I tried uploading "geoip" (which is the same as geoip.rc) to "/home/.config" and ran the geoip command again.

Still the same thing. Where should I place the config file (geoip.rc) and are my two lines sufficient?

    The documentation shows you $home not /home, but to avoid confusion:

    echo $HOME /home/marto

    Copy this config file in the home directory of the user running the script.

      I made three files "geoip.rc", ".geoiprc" and "geoip" all containing the same two lines of licence ID and license key in the format prescribed and uploaded respectively to:

      /home/user/geoip.rc /home/user/.geoiprc /home/me/.config/geoip

      I'm still getting the same thing. I see geoip.db created in the "/home/user/dat" directory where I ran the geoip command. Do I have to run the geoip command at "/home/user"?

      I'm not a paid user of Maxmind - signed up as a free user. Is that why my license key is not recognised?
