Issue: AWStats error: plugin load for plugin 'geoip' failed Error: Plugin load for plugin 'geoip' failed with return code: Error: Can't locate Geo/IP/PurePerl.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.5/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.5 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.5/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.5/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.1 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.0 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl . ./lib ./plugins) at (eval 3) line 1. Setup ('./awstats.DOMAIN.conf' file, web server or permissions) may be wrong. Check config file, permissions and AWStats documentation (in 'docs' directory). Solution Awstats geoip plugin uses perl modules to resolve IP addresses in countries. If you have enabled LoadPlugin="geoip GEOIP_STANDARD" plugin in awstats config file, you should be sure that certain Perl module(s) are installed on the system, because they are not the parts of the the original AWStats package. The error you`ve provided us clearly states that there is required Perl module missed: Error: Can't locate Geo/IP/PurePerl.pm in ... So, you have to install Perl module required by this plugin. It may be done in this way: # perl -MCPAN -e "install Geo::IP::PurePerl" # perl -MCPAN -e "install Geo::IP" or, if it doesn`t work for some reason, you may install Perl modules in traditional way by downloading and compiling tarballs: 1. wget geoip-xxx.tar.gz 2. tar -xzf geoip-xxx.tar.gz 3. cd geoip-xxx 4. perl Makefile.PL 5. make && make install Here is the link where you can find geoip Perl modules: http://search.cpan.org/search?query=Geo%3A%3AIP&mode=all You have to install two first packages - Geo::IP and Geo::IP::PurePerl (because Geo::IP::PurePerl depends on Geo::IP) Sometimes it may ask to install GeoIP C API before you can add perl Geo::IP module. You may download this API here: http://www.maxmind.com/app/c Once all this back-end is installed on the server, awstats statistics page for domains with enabled GEOIP plugin should work. This time we did all these steps for you, and i hope this detailed exlplanation will help you to quickly solve similar problems by yourselves.
