NAME

geoipupdate - GeoIP2 and GeoIP Legacy Update Program  

SYNOPSIS

geoipupdate [-Vvh] [-f license_file] [-d target_directory]  

DESCRIPTION

geoipupdate automatically updates GeoIP2 and GeoIP Legacy databases for MaxMind customers. The program connects to the MaxMind GeoIP Update server to check for new databases. If a new database is available, the program will download and install it.

If you are using a firewall, you must have the DNS and HTTP(S) ports open.  

OPTIONS

-V
Display version information.
-v
Enable verbose mode. Prints out the steps that geoipupdate takes.
-d
Install databases to a custom directory. By default geoipupdate installs to /usr/share/GeoIP.
-f
Use an alternate configuration file. Defaults to /etc/GeoIP.conf.
 

USAGE

Typically you should run geoipupdate weekly. One way to achieve this is to use cron. Below is a sample crontab file that runs geoipupdate on each Wednesday at noon:

# top of crontab

MAILTO=your@email.com

0 12 * * 3 BIN_DIR/geoipupdate

# end of crontab

To use with a proxy server, update your GeoIP.conf file as specified in the GeoIP.conf man page or set the http_proxy environment variable.  

RETURN CODES

geoipupdate returns 0 on success and 1 on error.  

FILES

/etc/GeoIP.conf
Configuration file for GeoIP Update. See the GeoIP.conf(5) man page for more information.
