Perl and Geo-IP Installation on Windows for AWStats
Posted in Hosting & IIS7, Windows Server | 5 Comments | 14,772 views | 25/04/2010 20:49

It’s always a real nightmare to install Geo-IP for AWStats on Windows for me. Because finding geo-ip ppd file is too hard on the internet. Also if your version is not compatible with Perl version, you can’t install it. So i decided to write a post about this to help people who have same trouble with me. I’ll be very simple.

First, download Perl from here and install it (use x86 version):

Then open a cmd, then type this to update your db:

C:\Perl\bin\ppm.bat

Now, you are ready to install Geo-IP PurePerl:

ppm install http://www.yusufozturk.info/tools/Geo-IP-PurePerl.ppd

I hope it works for you. I installed this on Windows Server 2008 R2 and it works well.

It’s actually against the terms of the ActivePerl Community License to redistribute ActivePerl without an OEM agreement.

It’s easy enough for people to download it directly from us though:

http://www.activestate.com/activeperl/downloads/

As for installing Geo-IP-PurePerl, that’s available directly from our PPM repository too, so you can just use the package name to fetch it:

ppm install Geo-IP-PurePerl

That should do the trick.

So, please remove the hosted copy of the MSI installer from your site. Let us handle distributing ActivePerl. ;)

Thank you Troy. Last time I checked the repository, there was no package named Geo-IP-PurePerl. Maybe I didn’t update package database. I’ll check it soon.

I have Win2008 R2 and installed Perl64 and could not get the GeoIP-Plugin to work :-( AWStats in general works fine.

Hello Ich,

You should use Perl x86 for GeoIP Plugin.

Hi Guys! I will follow this procedure with the installation of Geo-IP-PurePerl by PPM. However if i do that what i will indicate in the awstats.conf file for the GEOIP?

Best Regards
