# How to set GEOIP_PATH_MMDB?

Hi,

I set `GEOIP_PATH_MMD` in docker-compose.yml, but the following warning is printed:

``````[WARNING] sentry.utils.geo: settings.GEOIP_PATH_MMDB not configured.
``````

What’s wrong?

• docker-compose.yml
``````x-sentry-defaults: &sentry_defaults
(snip)
environment:
SENTRY_CONF: '/etc/sentry'
SNUBA: 'http://snuba-api:1218'
GEOIP_PATH_MMD: '/geoip/GeoLite2-City.mmdb'
SENTRY_REDIS_HOST: 'redis'
volumes:
- 'sentry-data:/data'
- './sentry:/etc/sentry'
- './geoip:/geoip'
``````

Have you managed to solve the GEOIP issue?

No, I haven’t. Could you tell me any hints?

Still figuring out, will inform here if I get more into this.

Also I think this is a good start: https://django.readthedocs.io/en/2.2.x/ref/contrib/gis/geoip2.html#std:setting-GEOIP_PATH

I think you will need to copy that file into the correct container in the docker-compose for the post-process-forwarder service.

I think that can be managed in the x-sentry-defaults: &sentry_defaults section, but you’ll need to specify the source and target.

We don’t need this for our setup, but this may be a helpful start for you.

My guess is
volumes:
- ‘sentry-data:/data’
- ‘./sentry:/etc/sentry’
- type: bind
source: /geoip/GeoLite2-City.mmdb
target: /data/geoip/GeoLite2-City.mmdb

and then maybe your export should reference the new /data/geoip/GeoLite2-City.mmdb

Please let me know if this is helpful. I’m sorry I don’t have more time to test it myself.

Thanks for your hint, but I have not resolved this yet.

Did you update your GEOIP_PATH_MMD: ‘/geoip/GeoLite2-City.mmdb’ to point to where it would be on the volume within that container?

My docker-compose.yml is:

I logged in `sentry_onpremise_post-process-forwarder_1` or `sentry_onpremise_web_1`…etc, and I found there was `/data/geoip/GeoLite2-City.mmdb` and `GEOIP_PATH_MMD` was defined.

Oh, sorry I corrected `GEOIP_PATH_MMD` to `GEOIP_PATH_MMDB` and worked well.
Thanks.

I just saw that I had introduced the typo, and I wanted to apologize. Glad it worked though!
