GeoIP.conf(7)	       Miscellaneous Information Manual		 GeoIP.conf(7)

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 sen-
       sitive.

   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  de-
	      fault  is	 DATADIR. 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.max-
	      mind.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	speci-
	      fied, 1080 will be used.

       ProxyUserPassword
	      The  proxy user name and password, separated by a	colon. For in-
	      stance, 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  re-
	      moved  from the filesystem. The default is .geoipupdate.lock un-
	      der the DatabaseDirectory.

       RetryFor
	      The amount of time to retry for when errors during HTTP transac-
	      tions  are encountered. It can be	specified as a (possibly frac-
	      tional) decimal number followed by a  unit  suffix.  Valid  time
	      units  are ns, us	(or A<micro>s),	ms, s, m, h. The default is 5m
	      (5 minutes).

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

       Protocol

       SkipPeerVerification

       SkipHostnameVerification
