Hi
I have installed Perl and Awstats and its working fine
I now wanted to install GEOIP to see the geograpical location of my visitors

I use Perl 5.12.3
I fould instruction here:
http://webdevster.com/how-to/install-maxmind-geoip-vs-geoipfree-on-awstats-wamp

When I type in the command:
ppm install http://trouchelle.com/ppm10/Geo-IP-PurePerl.ppd

it returns the error:
ppm install failed:The PPD does not provide the code to install for this platform

Am I dooing something wrong, can it be downloaded in a different way?

Hi there,

do you try to install the package on a linux box?
It seems, your Geo-IP-PurePerl just supports MSWin32.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<SOFTPKG NAME="Geo-IP-PurePerl" VERSION="1,25,0,0">
  <TITLE>Geo-IP-PurePerl</TITLE>
  <ABSTRACT>Look up country by IP Address</ABSTRACT>
  <AUTHOR>Boris Zentner &lt;BORISZ@cpan.org&gt; </AUTHOR>
  <IMPLEMENTATION>
    <OS NAME="MSWin32"/>
    <ARCHITECTURE NAME="MSWin32-x86-multi-thread-5.10"/>
    <CODEBASE HREF="MSWin32-x86-multi-thread-5.10/Geo-IP-PurePerl-1.25.zip"/>
    <PROVIDE NAME="Geo::IP::PurePerl" VERSION="1.25"/>
  </IMPLEMENTATION>
</SOFTPKG>

Open in new window


Maybe you follow the installation guide on this page and build the module for your box...

If you're on windows, the URL that you're referencing:

  http://trouchelle.com/ppm10/Geo-IP-PurePerl.ppd

is for ActiveState 5.10.  You're running 5.12.  You should try:

  ppm install http://trouchelle.com/ppm12/Geo-IP-PurePerl.ppd

And see if you have any better luck.  Or, you might try http://www.winzig.com/perl-ppd/.
