Attachment: GeoIP changes for IPv6

@anonymous-matomo-user commented on November 27th 2012

The PECL GeoIP doesn't support IPv6 yet. However, a patch is available here: https://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=59124

I've attached a patch to make piwik's MaxMind PHP lib play nice with the other patch.

@anonymous-matomo-user commented on November 27th 2012

Here's a somewhat complete changeset that would be required for IPv6 Support.

I have tested it on Fedora 18: Apache 2.4 with PHP 5.4.9, latest mod_geoip2 master branch from https://github.com/maxmind/geoip-api-mod_geoip2 (should work on 1.2.7 though) and patched PECL GeoIP with Patch from https://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=59124

Haven't tested on non patched/stable environment yet as I didn't have the time to set up a clean VM for that yet. So I'd appreciate any testing :)

@heffer Thanks for the patch. It does look interesting and we would like to consider committing the patch. Can you please add some tests? For example maybe you could update this test: ManyVisitorsOneWebsiteTest.php

See test instructions: https://github.com/piwik/piwik/blob/master/tests/README.txt

with tests we can safely consider the code and check it's working!

@anonymous-matomo-user commented on December 14th 2012

I will look into writing the tests during the Christmas break because I'm pretty busy right now. If you need it before then we'd need to find someone else to do it.

@mattab commented on December 14th 2012 Member

We don't need it quickly (it is a bonus for us that you worked on it), after Christmas will be perfect, thanks so much!

@heffer any update on Geoip with ipv6 support? thanks for your time!

@anonymous-matomo-user commented on July 31st 2013

bump! hello everybody... is there a patch for ipv6 adresses? many thanks!

@anonymous-matomo-user commented on July 31st 2013

I stopped working on this after noticing that the tests were somewhat broken. I can't remember what the exact issue was, it's been some months. However, currently I can't find the time to work on this right now.

@anonymous-matomo-user commented on August 1st 2013

thanks for the answer. Actually I opened another ticked because i noticed that there are two free databases http://dev.maxmind.com/geoip/legacy/geolite/
one for ipv4 and one for ipv6

it is not possible to simply merge the two databases? (noob question probably)

@anonymous-matomo-user commented on January 28th 2014

Could you maybe update the patch against the current release?

Was it already considered by the devs maybe? Anything wrong with it?

@mattab commented on January 28th 2014 Member

The patch looks fine! I'd like to commit it to Piwik. If you can make a pull request (after testing that it works), we will do our best to merge quickly! cheers

@mygithuber commented on October 23rd 2014

There seems to be an aggravation, noticed in Piwik v2.8.1:
Visitor log doesn't show visitor's provider if it comes with an IPv6 adress, pls notice attached screenshot (label "unbekannt" ) .
Settings: GeoIP(PECL) is working with Maxmind's 'GeoLite City', visitor's privacy is set as shown in screenshot.

Pls look at https://github.com/piwik/piwik/issues/4391 too.
