You are better off asking for improvements/feature requests on their site in the modifications forum.

I recommend moving to a better host, as if the alternative lookup method fails, GeoIP is required in order for this mod to work.

Im sure you have allot more members then that. Any update would be great. Thanks...
For performance reasons, we've turned off pins for usergroups other than our root admins

Are you making fun or is this your serious advice? Donīt wanna get you wrong on that.

But, is there a logical reason why including the free MaxMind GeoIP-files and amaking your mod working with that files isnīt an option? Not only are they definitly more accurate, updated on a regular basis - this would give all users (even those on shared hosting) the possibility to install and use this mod.

Just so I understand....

If I install mod_geoip on my server the results will be a bit more accurate?

Also... do I want the legacy mod_geoip or the new mod_geoip2

Okay I installed this map hack at my forum, we have around 18000 users.

We do not have any geo ip php extension, but map is still showing users online, how it works!?

Because users who were displayed in the city yesterday, they dissapeared , and on the same place there were displayed some other users.

i choosen to display all registered users on map.

Answers are all in this thread. This mod has a primary and a secondary method to locate users. If the primary fails (because mod_geoip isnīt available), method 2 kicks in. But as far as it seems, both methods donīt work very accurate. Thatīs what I can tell by the posts of others in this thread. Experiences may vary as usual.

Yeah unfortunately geolocation isn't an exact science. For instance, living in Glasgow (Scotland, UK) I frequently find myself being geolocated to London (England, UK). This is because the company that owns the IP address I'm connected to, has its registered access in London.

Some IP address blocks are registered to a more local office, but unfortunately it's not always possible to be 100% accurate.

Then there's some IP addresses that flat out don't have a registered address, either because the registered address records are not public, or for some other reason unknown to me.

The mod tries, it really does. That's all you can ask of the lad

I've always thought a better approach for a Member Map is to allow folks to enter their home as a profile field entry and then have THAT produce a pin on a map. Some of us have a jury-rigged version of an old version 3 member map that did just that. I am always surprised that no one has managed to build a more recent version that functions reliably. But I'm not a coder, so certainly not implying it's easy.

I just installed mod_geoip on my server.

I think I did it correctly, however, the member map is no different afterwards.

Do I need to wait for it to update the member map?

Is there any way for me to test to see if it is working?

D.

Your best bet may be to try a reinstall, as I believe if the mod detects an IP can't be resolved it will flag it to avoid re-testing in the future.

Is there a DB table or file I can clear so that it does the lookup again?

When I run the Cron it returns a value of 0 probably because it has already looked up the IPs already.

Sounds like you have the same problem as me. No GeoIp on your server.

If you can't add it yourself or if your host will not then you're kind of screwed. Uninstall and move on is my best advice.

Uninstall / reinstall is the fastest way of ensuring you start from scratch

I'm not the original developer of this modification, so I don't know the table name off the top of my head.
