Hello :)

You will need to install the geoip package through YUM before installing the PECL module. EX:

Code:
yum install geoip
yum install geoip-devel
Thank you.

Thanks Michael,

I tested this on my local copy of CentOS 6.5

It does fix the problem and allows "PECL install geoip" to function properly

However, I did have to load the Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux (EPEL) first:

yum install epel-release

Have not tried on the CPANEL server, so not sure if last step is required there.

Finally, will using the PECL tool in WHM add "extension=geoip.so" to php.ini or does that have to be done manually?

Will the following work better rather than editing php.ini?

echo "extension=geoip.so" > /etc/php.d/geoip.ini

The extension is automatically added when installing the PECL module.

Thank you.

Just a quick update. Performed the following:

yum install epel-release
yum install geoip


WHM-->PHP PECL-->Install geoip

and it still fails.

Please install the "geoip-devel" package and let us know if the issue persists:

Code:
yum install geoip-devel
Thank you.
