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?
