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.
* Documentations are written assuming that your PHP Live! is always the latest version. If you do not see the menu options or the feature, you may want to upgrade your system to the latest version. The latest version can be downloaded at the client area.
To access the GeoIP API, you'll want to:
- Login to your PHP Live! Setup Admin area.
- Click the top menu "Extras".
- Proceed to the "Dev APIs" sub 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. The GeoIP addon is included FREE with both the Download and the On Demand solution.
