When cities turn up unknown but they are in the DB

Postby impactorange on Fri Oct 21, 2005 2:05 am

I am playing around with a copy of the db on my own server. I noticed that both on my server and on hostip.info, an IP address associated with Hamilton, ON turns up "unknown" even though it is in the cities list. I imagine this would happen with other cities too.

http://www.hostip.info/api/get.html?ip= ... ition=true

This returns an unknown city.

Upon further investigation, somehow $info["city"] (in /lib/iplookup.php) becomes 0 instead of the actual city number. When I print the $sql string out, it's totally fine. If I take this exact string into sql, it returns results.

Any idea why the city would become 0 instead of using the value from mysql?

Thanks for your help!

Hostip geo data is a building project.

Here you can see than 45% of datas are wrong or missing
