I am running Drupal site and trying to install Ad GeoIP, two of the requirements are the MaxMind and PECL GeoIP. I followed this instruction in installing MaxMind: http://community.webfaction.com/questions/210/how-to-install-maxmind-geoip-api, I made it but I am not really sure it what I did was right. I don't actually understand the last part which says invoke.

Now I need also to install PECL but I found no instruction here so I followed what in written on Drupal module instruction. I issued this command:

sudo aptitude install libgeoip-dev libgeoip1

And I receive this response: We trust you have received the usual lecture from the local System Administrator. It usually boils down to these three things:

#1) Respect the privacy of others.
#2) Think before you type.
#3) With great power comes great responsibility.

[sudo] password for my_username:

When I enter my SSH password, I receive this response: my_username is not in the sudoers file. This incident will be reported.

Now I am scared my account get banned... I hope I did not do anything wrong. I am not a Linux guy, I really don't understand what I was doing, I just follow step by step instruction, like trial and error method, if it works then good but if not, then try again another way.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

We will not penalize you for accidently invoking sudo, it is only a warning. If you need assistance we would be happy to take a look with a support ticket.
