Hi Kaushal,

You have to install geoip first before using its features, this link might help http://php.net/manual/en/geoip.setup.php if you get stuck just tell me what distro you are using

Hi, I have written this code in my php file.
[code]
$region = geoip_region_by_name('121.246.53.66');
if ($region) {
    print_r($region);
}
[/code]

But gives fatal error :-

Fatal error: Call to undefined function geoip_region_by_name() in /home/justkids/public_html/index.php on line 40

Do I need to add anything else? Can any one please help?

Thanks
