You will need to set the location of the database files if they are in the default locations. This can be done by adding a couple of lines to the config.yml file as per the example below.
IPInfoCache: GeoPath: '/usr/share/GeoIP/GeoLite2-City.mmdb' GeoPathISP: '/usr/share/GeoIP/GeoIP2-ISP-Test.mmdb'
You will neeed to retrive a databse for the module to work with this will need to be stored on the server and you may need to set the location of GeoPath under IPInfoCache in your config yml file. The free databases can be downloaded from here https://github.com/maxmind/GeoIP2-php You can also generate test databases with this module https://github.com/maxmind/MaxMind-DB
The curent endpoint returns a JSON object giving location details for the IP address. The results default to json but they can also be returned as jsonp if this has been defined under the config for IPInfoCache
