Open up your SSH client (PuTTY) and log in to your VPS as root user. Then enter the following commands: # mkdir /usr/share/GeoIP # cd /usr/share/GeoIP # cd GeoIP To download and install the GeoIP database provided by MaxMind, enter the following commands: # wget http://geolite.maxmind.com/download/geoip/database/GeoLiteCountry/GeoIP.dat.gz # gzip -d GeoIP.dat.gz Next we will install the custom mod_geoip cPanel module created by Sohail Riaz. Simply enter the following commands: # wget http://twiki.cpanel.net/twiki/pub/EasyApache3/CustomMods/custom_opt_mod-mod_geoip.tar.gz # tar -C /var/cpanel/easy/apache/custom_opt_mods -xzf custom_opt_mod-mod_geoip.tar.gz Now that we have installed the GeoIP database and all the modules required to run mod_geoip with Apache and cPanel, we will need to rebuild Apache in WHM. WHM -> Software -> EasyApache (Apache Update) -> Start customizing based on profile -> Check 'Mod GeoIP' option (on Short / Exhaustive Options List page) -> Save and Build After Apache has been rebuilt with mod_geoip, we will need to load and enable the module every time Apache runs. First, in WHM, go to: WHM -> Service Configuration -> Apache Configuration -> Include Editor -> Pre Main Include -> Select the current Apache version Second, enter the following codes into the textbox: LoadModule geoip_module /usr/local/apache/modules/mod_geoip.so GeoIPEnable On GeoIPDBFile /usr/share/GeoIP/GeoIP.dat MemoryCache
