    I tried to install mod_geoip using the method on this website:

    Install mod_GeoIP2 on Apache2 in CentOS 7 - PC Repairman's Blog

    At the point where I need to install httpd-devel it fails, saying "Error: Nothing to do". I tracked this down to yum.conf blocking the installation. My question is, if I allow this install to go ahead (by removing the block), is there a chance that it could mess up my server? I have client websites on there so it's particularly important for me.

    The only reason I need http-devel is to run apxs, the Apache Extension Tool. Any other methods to get mod_geoip on there would be welcomed.

    Thanks in advance.

    Note: I'm running CentOS 7.3 and Apache2 on a Cloud Server with WHM/cPanel.

    Hello,

    The instructions in that guide are unsupported due to how Apache is implemented with cPanel. Try using the instructions on the following post instead:

    Thank you.

    Hi,

    You'll want to install 'ea-apache24-devel' package, as this will contain apxs
