IP Address Lookup in Bulk Using PHP and MySQL Database

In this tutorial, we demonstrate you on how to lookup IP address in bulk using PHP programming languages and IP2Location MySQL database. In this tutorial, we use the IP2Location LITE database to lookup country of origin from the visitor's IP address. Free databases are available for download at IP2Location LITE database.

 

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

Step 1: Download IP2Location LITE database, unzip the file follow the instruction in order to create database table. Please refer to DB11 LITE for further information.

Step 2: Run the below sample code.

<?php
		
	//MYSQL configuration
	$mysql_server = "mysql_server.com";
	$mysql_user_name ="User ID";
	$mysql_user_pass ="password";
	
	//Connect to database
	$link = mysql_connect($mysql_server,$mysql_user_name,$mysql_user_pass) or die("could not connect to MySQL Database");
	
	//Check database connection
	if(!$link)
	{
		echo "Database error.";
	}
	else
	{
		mysql_select_db("ip2location") or die("could not select database");
		echo "Database is Connected .";
		echo "
