Greetings.
I want to upload *. dat files from the package GeoIP.
Where do I need to place them (in which folder)?
And in general, where it is better to place your files (this could be, for example, text database or another that either) that I needed to work site?
Contact (export) of these files can only be inside the server.

By "GeoIP", are you referring to an apache module, or a python package, a php library, or some other type of software? Can you describe in more detail which type of application you're using with it?

Also, does the package itself not provide configuration options for configuring the location of your data files? Most commonly, you would put the files anywhere and then ensure that the package knows where to look for them.

I plan to use the binaries from MaxMind.
http://dev.maxmind.com/geoip/legacy/downloadable
My site is written in Django, I want to use the app - pygeoip.
Basically my question was actually about where to copy the database files? So, I just create a folder in my $ HOME directory and copy the files there?

If you follow our recommended procedure for installing MaxMind GeoIP and its Python bindings, the data files will go in your ~/share/GeoIP directory.

Hope that helps!
