The config file (geoip.rc) wasn't read because of permission. It was 644 but it must be 600 - sought help from the hosting.
I finally managed to create the geoip.gb file with the total size of 510,100,144 (someone posted this size too) so I think the db is complete. I say this because when I ran the --fetch command, there was no success message when it ended:
user@myhost ~]$ geoip --fetch --DB=dbi:SQLite:dbname=geoip.db

Reading City info ...
Reading City IPv4 info ..
So I thought I should be able to run the command below now that the geoip.db is set up:
[user@myhost ~]$ geoip -w 188.8.131.52
FATAL: no pg_hba.conf entry for host "[local]", user "user", database
+ "geoip", SSL off
Cannot continue without a working database
What am I still missing?
