NAME

       GeoIP.conf - Configuration file for geoipupdate

SYNOPSIS

       This  file  allows you to configure your geoipupdate program to download GeoIP2, GeoLite2,
       and GeoIP Legacy databases.

DESCRIPTION

       The file consists of one setting per line.  Lines starting with # are  comments  and  will
       not be processed.  All setting keywords are case sensitive.

   Required settings:
       AccountID
              Your MaxMind account ID.  This was formerly known as UserId.

       LicenseKey
              Your case-sensitive MaxMind license key.

       EditionIDs
              List  of space-separated database edition IDs.  Edition IDs may consist of letters,
              digits, and dashes.  For example, GeoIP2-City 106 would download  the  GeoIP2  City
              database (GeoIP2-City) and the GeoIP Legacy Country database (106).  Note: this was
              formerly called ProductIds.

   Optional settings:
       DatabaseDirectory
              The  directory  to  store  the  database  files.   If  not  set,  the  default   is
              /var/lib/GeoIP.   This  can  be  overridden  at  run  time  by  the -d command line
              argument.

       Host   The host name of the server to use.  The default is updates.maxmind.com.

       Proxy  The proxy host name or IP address.  You may optionally specify a port number, e.g.,
              127.0.0.1:8888.  If no port number is specified, 1080 will be used.

       ProxyUserPassword
              The   proxy   user  name  and  password,  separated  by  a  colon.   For  instance,
              username:password.

       PreserveFileTimes
              Whether to preserve modification times of files downloaded from the  server.   This
              option is either 0 or 1.  The default is 0.

       LockFile
              The lock file to use.  This ensures only one geoipupdate process can run at a time.
              Note: Once created, this lockfile is not removed from the filesystem.  The  default
              is .geoipupdate.lock under the DatabaseDirectory.

       RetryFor
              The  amount  of  time  to  retry  for  when  errors  during  HTTP  transactions are
              encountered.  It can  be  specified  as  a  (possibly  fractional)  decimal  number
              followed  by a unit suffix.  Valid time units are ns, us (or ┬Ás), ms, s, m, h.  The
              default is 5m (5 minutes).

   Deprecated settings:
       The following are deprecated and will be ignored if present:
