IP2Location™ LITE IP-COUNTRY Database

Introduction

IP2Location LITE Database

This database provides a solution to determine the country of origin for any IP address in a few simple steps. First, retrieve the IP address from the networking protocol or server-side variable of the Web server. Next, translate the IP address to an IP number in decimal format to speed up the database query. Lastly, reverse lookup the IP number from the IP2Location™ database to pinpoint the exact geographical location.

Database Setup

Below are the steps to set up the database for both IPv4 and IPv6 data.

Create Database
CREATE DATABASE ip2location;
USE ip2location;
CREATE TABLE `ip2location_db1`(
	`ip_from` INT(10) UNSIGNED,
	`ip_to` INT(10) UNSIGNED,
	`country_code` CHAR(2),
	`country_name` VARCHAR(64),
	INDEX `idx_ip_from` (`ip_from`),
	INDEX `idx_ip_to` (`ip_to`),
	INDEX `idx_ip_from_to` (`ip_from`, `ip_to`)
) ENGINE=MyISAM DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8 COLLATE=utf8_bin;
Import Database
LOAD DATA LOCAL
	INFILE 'IP2LOCATION-LITE-DB1.CSV'
INTO TABLE
	`ip2location_db1`
FIELDS TERMINATED BY ','
ENCLOSED BY '"'
LINES TERMINATED BY '\r\n'
IGNORE 0 LINES;
Create Database
CREATE DATABASE ip2location
GO

USE ip2location
GO

CREATE TABLE [ip2location].[dbo].[ip2location_db1](
	[ip_from] bigint NOT NULL,
	[ip_to] bigint NOT NULL,
	[country_code] nvarchar(2) NOT NULL,
	[country_name] nvarchar(64) NOT NULL
) ON [PRIMARY]
GO

CREATE CLUSTERED INDEX [ip_to] ON [ip2location].[dbo].[ip2location_db1]([ip_to]) ON [PRIMARY]
GO
Import Database
BULK INSERT [ip2location].[dbo].[ip2location_db1]
FROM '{PATH TO IP2LOCATION-LITE-DB1.CSV}'
WITH
(
	FORMATFILE = '{PATH TO DB1.FMT}'
)
GO

NOTE: You will need to copy the FMT code below and save it as a file named DB1.FMT on your computer.
