    I'm reading the GeoIP tutorial at http://www.howtoforge.com/installing-mod_geoip-for-apache2-on-ubuntu-12.04 .
    First off using the lite version of GeoIP this works. After purchasing a lisence for GeoIP, I downloaded the new and updated database (.dat), and edited geoip.conf in apache2/mods-available.

    The result when running a test script is nothing. I only see a blank page.
    I'm using the following code from maxmind.com:
    // include functions
    // read GeoIP database
    $handle = geoip_open("GeoIP.dat", GEOIP_STANDARD);
    // map IP to country
    echo "IP address located in " . geoip_country_name_by_addr($handle, "") . " (country code " . geoip_country_code_by_addr($handle, "") . ")";
    // close database handler
    // print compulsory license notice
    echo "<p> -- This product includes GeoIP data created by MaxMind, available from http://maxmind.com/ --";
    Any ideas? Thanks.

    Which error message do you get in the global apache or website error.log file?

    This is embarrasing, I had forgotten to change the php code I attached with the location to the .inc script and the proper .dat file.
