Required database not available at /usr/share/GeoIP/GeoIPOrg.dat

So I was working on one of my Fiverr orders and client complained his Prosper202 is not working as it should. This was an order with GeoIP integration. This is an error that is caused by a missing database. Simply adding database to proper location will fix the problem.

Before I move to the fix, This was the error client was getting,

Warning: geoip_org_by_name() [function.geoip-org-by-name]: Required database not available at /usr/share/GeoIP/GeoIPOrg.dat. in /var/www/clcktrcker.com/public_html/tracking202/includes/devices_detect_inc.php on line 5

What I did was just download the missing file from github,

sudo wget https://github.com/nateweiss/geoip-data-files/blob/master/GeoIPOrg.dat?raw=true

As you can see, wget saves file as GeoIPOrg.dat?raw=true so let’s fix that too,

sudo mv GeoIPOrg.dat?raw=true GeoIPOrg.dat

That should be it.
