NAME
       geoipupdate - GeoIP2, GeoLite2, and GeoIP Legacy	Update Program

SYNOPSIS
       geoipupdate [-Vvh] [-f CONFIG_FILE] [-d TARGET_DIRECTORY]

DESCRIPTION
       geoipupdate  automatically  updates  GeoIP2, GeoLite2, and GeoIP	Legacy
       databases. The program connects to the MaxMind GeoIP Update  server  to
       check  for  new	databases. If a	new database is	available, the program
       will download and install it.

       If you are using	a firewall, you	must have  the	DNS  and  HTTPS	 ports
       open.

OPTIONS
-d, --database-directory

	      Install  databases  to a custom directory.  This is optional. If
	      provided,	it overrides any DatabaseDirectory set in the configu-
	      ration file.

-f, --config-file

	      The configuration	file to	use. See GeoIP.conf and	its documenta-
	      tion for more information. This  is  optional.  It  defaults  to
	      CONFFILE.

   -h, --help

	      Display help and exit.

--stack-trace

	      Show  a stack trace on any error message.	This is	primarily use-
	      ful for debugging.

-V, --version

	      Display version information and exit.

-v, --verbose

	      Enable verbose mode.  Prints  out	 the  steps  that  geoipupdate
	      takes.

EXIT STATUS
       geoipupdate returns 0 on	success	and 1 on error.

NOTES
       Typically you should run	geoipupdate weekly. On most Unix-like systems,
       this can	be achieved by using cron. Below is a sample crontab file that
       runs geoipupdate	on each	Wednesday at noon:

       # top of	crontab

       MAILTO=your@email.com

       0 12 * *	3 geoipupdate

       # end of	crontab

       To use with a proxy server, update your GeoIP.conf file as specified in
       the GeoIP.conf man page or set the http_proxy environment variable.
