Manual Install Instructions for SMF


This mod is based on Ip to Country mod. After attaining the proper permission from the mod author it became possible to update the mod for SMF 2.x branch. A huge thanks to SONSiVRi for that.

This mod makes use of the GeoLite data created by MaxMind, available from MaxMind which is released under an OPEN DATA LICENSE.

Installation may take as long as minutes because of IP database (inserting 158,068 rows into database)

This mod basically shows country name of the user with the IP address in posts and profiles.

With this mod membergroups who are able to see the IP address will be able to know the country name of concerned user without using whois.

After installation to show the country names associated with earlier posted messages, please go to
Administration Center >> Forum Maintenance >> Routine -- (Created index number of IP's associated with message) Run this task.
