GEOIP download problem sice update to 3.0.1.8

Post by Pukkeltje » 09 Feb 2017 13:52

Since the upgrade to 3.0.1.8, I get this error while updating de GEOIP databases:
Downloading file, please wait...
Error occurred while downloading GeoIP IPv4 data file: cURL error 7: Failed to connect to 2400:cb00:2048:1::6810:262f: Network is unreachable
Error occurred while downloading GeoIP IPv6 data file: cURL error 7: Failed to connect to 2400:cb00:2048:1::6810:262f: Network is unreachable
Download complete, unpacking files...

GeoIP IPv4 data file successfully unpacked
GeoIP IPv6 data file successfully unpacked
Process completed!

The files in the directory are 0 bytes:

drwxrwxr-x 2 root apache 4096 Feb 9 14:45 .
drwxr-xr-x 6 root root 4096 Feb 7 23:52 ..
-rw-r--r-- 1 apache apache 0 Feb 9 14:45 GeoIP.dat
-rw-r--r-- 1 apache apache 0 Feb 9 14:45 GeoIPv6.dat
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 70 Jan 10 16:51 .gitignore

It looks like IP resolving is only to IPv6 address. I only have a IPv4 network connection.

Odd. I am able to resolve to ipv4 addresses on 3.0.1.8.

What are getting when you resolve the following?

Code: Select all

Already tried to add the ip's to host file but this results in

Tried to manually download the file via curl with

curl -O http://geolite.maxmind.com/download/geo ... oIP.dat.gz

That works. :think: :think:

And now they discontinued their free service.


on their website:

Code: Select all

GeoLite Legacy databases were discontinued on January 2, 2019. Learn more

any ideas on what should be done, except deleting the GeoIP files?
