GeoIP information is the approximate country and city location of an internet IP address. PHP Live! includes the option to integrate the GeoIP addon feature to the system and perhaps utilize the data for other purposes and integration.
To access the GeoIP API, you'll want to:
- Login to the PHP Live! setup area.
- Click the top "Extras" menu.
- From here, there is a GeoIP HTTP URL API that outputs the geo data of an IP address. NOTE: You'll want to install the GeoIP addon prior to accessing the API.
The API will output the country abbreviation, country name, region, city, latitude and longitude of an IP address. This information could be used to perhaps display specific shopping cart or shipping fees based on the region. There are many possibilities with the GeoIP data and PHP Live! provides the helpful information. The GeoIP addon is included FREE with both the Download and the On Demand solution.
