[ITA] [RISOLTO] Eclipse PDT: Animation Start An internal error has occurred. java.lang.NullPointerException

eclipseMi è capitato di imbattermi in questo messaggio di errore mentre testavo il debug di Eclipse con Xdebug sul mio mac. A quanto pare non è niente di serio, anzi sembrerebbe (almeno a naso) legato ad un’immagine non trovata, utilizzata appena prima l’ esecuzione di alcuni comandi (come il debug).
Non ho controllato dove dovrebbe trovarsi questa immagine, al limite si potrebbe rimpiazzarla con una innoqua immagine da 1 pixel, ad ogni modo esiste una soluzione a portata di mano, semplice e veloce:

Debian, Apache2, PHP5 AND GEOIP Logging

geolocalization apache ipHelo there! In these last days one client of mine asked me how to prevent non-italian visitors from seeing national ADS when they visit one or more websites.
The solution comes alog with builtin geoip functions in the php5-geoip package to be installed as usual using apt-get
After installed this package typing:
apt-get install php5-geoip

Now, what you have is a countries database, and if you want to be much more precise (as me for example) you can download a detailed Cities database typing the following set of commands:

cd /tmp
wget http://geolite.maxmind.com/download/geoip/database/GeoLiteCity.dat.gz
gunzip GeoLiteCity.dat.gz
sudo mv -v GeoLiteCity.dat /usr/share/GeoIP/GeoIPCity.dat

Now you own the entire planet cities database! 🙂

Let’s try it within a PHP web page: create a new file (or edit an existent one) and type:

print_r(geoip_record_by_name('php.net'));

It should return something like this:

Array
(
[country_code] => US
[country_code3] => USA
[country_name] => United States
[region] => CA
[city] => Sunnyvale
[postal_code] => 94089
[latitude] => 37.4249000549
[longitude] => -122.007400513
[dma_code] => 807
[area_code] => 408
)

Comments or questions are welcome, Also if you neew to setup a geo based service, now you know who could do it for you!

Cheers
