Hey there nginxers-

  Is there a way to use a geoip database with nginx instead of
explicitely listing out all the IP ranges in the nginx.conf?
Something like this:

  There is a modeul for apache and lighttpd for this type of stuff.
Any hints or help here? Or shoudl I just script something up to auto
generate the geoip config for nginx from one of these databases?

+ contrib/ to convert MaxMind CSV database.


geo $IP_GEO

  default  --;
         include /etc/nginx/geo_ip_country;

and proxy_set_header / fastcgi_param as usual

Hint 1:
You may use contrib/ script to convert maxmind's geoip
database into nginx config format.

Hint 2:
You may use "include" directive to include additional file into
(e.g. your converted geoip database).

quick, dumb follow up question on this...

what is the syntax for running

tried ./ GeoIPCountryWhois.csv geo.conf


./ GeoIPCountryWhois.csv > geo.conf

to no avail.

the script looks quite simple, and i tried to RTFM i.e look at the
script, but there's no usage example, and it doesn't look like there's
any switches.

i tried hunting around for some similar examples, no luck.

im sure this is really simple, considering there isn't even a usage
example, but im not very bright.. i mean not a coder or perl guy...
could somebody help a brother  out on this one

thanks in advance
