Building an IP-to-Country Mapping Application with PHP
Feb 04, 2009 @ 08:47:30

DevShed has launched a new four-article series today looking at resolving a user's IP to their country via the database provided here.

If you have content in several different languages, your visitors probably speak several different languages as well. Wouldn't it be nice to serve them content from your site in their native language, based on the country from which they hail? You can, even if you're a small company, with an application that tells you a visitor's country based on their IP address. This four-part article series will show you how to build the application and incorporate it into your web site.

They just get things set up in this first part of the series - grabbing the CSV file from the site, creating the MySQL table to import it into and running a script to parse the CSV and push its data into the table.
