GeoPlugin Tutorial Get User Location Information IP Detection

Learn to use the GeoPlugin within your PHP scripts. GeoPlugin returns an array that you can easily parse using PHP. Detecting user location automatically according to their IP address requires that we have access to a geoip database to refer to in our programs. GeoPlugin offers that to you remotely which makes the set up of GEOIP programs much simpler and faster. example.php <?php $user_ip = getenv('REMOTE_ADDR'); $geo = unserialize(file_get_contents("http://www.geoplugin.net/php.gp?ip=$user_ip")); $city = $geo["geoplugin_city"]; $region = $geo["geoplugin_regionName"]; $country = $geo["geoplugin_countryName"]; echo "City: ".$city."<br>"; echo "Region: ".$region."<br>"; echo "Country: ".$country."<br>"; /* geoplugin_request geoplugin_status geoplugin_credit geoplugin_city geoplugin_region geoplugin_areaCode geoplugin_dmaCode geoplugin_countryCode geoplugin_countryName geoplugin_continentCode geoplugin_latitude geoplugin_longitude geoplugin_regionCode geoplugin_regionName geoplugin_currencyCode geoplugin_currencySymbol geoplugin_currencySymbol_UTF8 geoplugin_currencyConverter */ ?>
