Can you create a converter from the old vb membermap?

But I moved over to my own dedicated server and runs wonderfully :)

Sounds like a generic answer from your host because they didn't feel like installing it. It's INCREDIBLY *not* resource intensive...

No idea what that is, sorry.

Works great, Any way of getting registered users, admins, etc usernames to appear on the pins instead or along with View in Google Earth?

I had thought about doing it that way originally, but decided against it because if all the potential complaints from end-users about privacy issues.

An importer for this modifcation: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=154533 would be very very nice.

Would this be something fairly simple to add or would it require a lot of work? I don't know much about modding. I think it might be possible to add a check box to the registration page to accept being added to the member map. Might be cool to look into :-)

Can anyone explain how to successfully install geoip on a xampp windows server??

I tried the mod_geoip as well but in any case I cannot get the php or the apache version running with windows...

There's nothing really *to* import since mine is locating the user in realtime based on their IP address. That one appears to really just be a system where each user can put an arbitrary pin on the map (since the user can put it anywhere they want). If you want something like that, you probably would just want to ask the developer to update it since it's really something different.

Eh... it would be possible, but having people opt-into it would also have the affect of very few users actually using it. Personally, I like it the way it is now where it's a little more anonymous, but all users are on it.

If you uninstalled it, you would also want to delete the usermap.php file. :)

OK, so much for me giving people advice....

I now have GEOIP installed in my apache and environment, and I get this above error. What am I missing????

ahmedipa 12 Jun 2010 06:06

so nice thank you so much

mikey1991 12 Jun 2010 06:13

Can you 'backport' this to 3.8 and release it? I have a client who would love something like this.

Does GeoIP show up in phpinfo() for you?

docvader 12 Jun 2010 06:58

No, it shows up in Apache as a mod, and in the environment. They installed the Apache end of it, not the PHP end. According to Maxmind, it's another way of doing it, but, apparently, it doesn't work.

I've asked them to put the PHP extension in for geoip. we're using Linux. Finding the right directions for Linux was not clear; if you have a good link, I'd appreciate it.
