Hi Peter,

I can't install geoip library with the regular labs extension manager and also with the joomla usual installer.

I tried to uninstall / reinstall but no success. Here is the message joomla gives:

Message
GeoIP v2.1.0 (Bibliothèque) a été installé avec succès. (Successfully installed but ...
Alerte
Operation timed out after 30000 milliseconds with 16271822 out of 25457707 bytes received

I tried to do with install from folder, with an "unzip" archives of geoip but didn't go through i get the same alert message

GeoIP will download the 65MB MaxMind GeoIP2 database file on installation.
It seems your server has a slow connection and cannot download it inside the 30 seconds timeout.

Try increasing the php timeout setting on your setup.

Where is the 65MB MaxMind GeoIP2 database file located? Is it a file on server or a table on database?

Sorry for re-opening this thread.

The database file is downloaded from the MaxMind server upon installation. The file itself is located in:

libraries/geoip/GeoLite2-City.mmdb
