Could not open ISO and Deny folder/Masterfile uniq check - pfB 2.1.1_10



  • Recently I started to get 'Could not open ISO' and 'Deny folder/Masterfile uniq check' messages in the update log. It looks like this in the log file:

    Database Sanity check [  PASSED  ]
    –----------------------
    Masterfile/Deny folder uniq check

    I assume this is not normal behavior so what can I do to fix it ?

    This is addressed in the upcoming release of the package.

    MaxMind contains a "Represented" list of IPs for Countries. Unfortunately, MaxMind can list IPs in a GeoIP one month, but list none for the following month. The Database doesn't contain any blank dummy data to act as a placeholder.

    So its safe to ignore the log message as there were no IPs listed by MaxMind for those Represented GeoIPs for this specific month.

    The next release will create a placeholder GeoIP file for each empty represented GeoIP.
