Importing IP2Location data into Oracle Database and querying with PHP (IPv6)

The aim of this guide is to demonstrate how to import IP2Location data (DB24 IPv6) in CSV form into Oracle Database and then query the data in a PHP web page.

Download commercial version at https://ip2location.com/download?code=DB24IPV6

Extract out the IPV6-COUNTRY-REGION-CITY-LATITUDE-LONGITUDE-ZIPCODE-TIMEZONE-ISP-DOMAIN-NETSPEED-AREACODE-WEATHER-MOBILE-ELEVATION-USAGETYPE.CSV file from the downloaded zipped file.

Important Note

We will not cover installation of Oracle or PHP in this guide. We will assume you have already setup Oracle and PHP on the localhost and are using PHP via Apache (also on the localhost). For this example, we are using a Windows 10 machine.

Importing the CSV data into Oracle

Run the following SQL in Oracle to create the table and import the data from the CSV file:

CREATE TABLE ip2location_db24_ipv6(
  ip_from CHAR(39),
  ip_to CHAR(39),
  country_code CHAR(2),
  country_name VARCHAR2(64),
  region_name VARCHAR2(128),
  city_name VARCHAR2(128),
  latitude BINARY_DOUBLE,
  longitude BINARY_DOUBLE,
  zip_code VARCHAR2(30),
  time_zone VARCHAR2(8),
  isp VARCHAR2(256),
  domain VARCHAR2(128),
  net_speed VARCHAR2(8),
  idd_code VARCHAR2(5),
  area_code VARCHAR2(30),
  weather_station_code VARCHAR2(10),
  weather_station_name VARCHAR2(128),
  mcc VARCHAR2(256),
  mnc VARCHAR2(256),
  mobile_brand VARCHAR2(128),
  elevation NUMBER(10),
  usage_type VARCHAR2(11),
  CONSTRAINT pk_ip_to_ipv6 PRIMARY KEY (ip_to)
);

CREATE OR REPLACE DIRECTORY ip_tmp AS 'C:\your_CSV_file_folder';
GRANT READ, WRITE ON DIRECTORY ip_tmp TO sys;

INSERT INTO ip2location_db24_ipv6(ip_from, ip_to, country_code, country_name, region_name, city_name, latitude, longitude, zip_code, time_zone, isp, domain, net_speed, idd_code, area_code, weather_station_code, weather_station_name, mcc, mnc, mobile_brand, elevation, usage_type)

EXEC DBMS_STATS.GATHER_TABLE_STATS('sys','ip2location_db24_ipv6');

Querying the data in PHP

Now, create a PHP file called test.php in your website.

Paste the following PHP code into it and then run it in the browser:

<?php
$ip = '2001:1388:b4b:342e:ad92:a9e7:bc5b:9340';

function ip62long($ipv6) {
  return (string) gmp_import(inet_pton($ipv6));
}

function queryIP2Location($myip) {
  $user = 'sys';
  $pass = '12345';
  $host = 'localhost';
  $port = 1521;
  $service = 'XE';
  $tns = '
  (DESCRIPTION =
    (ADDRESS_LIST =
    (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = ' . $host . ')(PORT = ' . $port . '))
    )
    (CONNECT_DATA =
    (SERVICE_NAME = ' . $service . ')
    )
  )';
  
  if ($conn = oci_connect($user, $pass, $tns, 'AL32UTF8', OCI_SYSDBA)) {
    if (filter_var($myip, FILTER_VALIDATE_IP, FILTER_FLAG_IPV4)) {
      $myip = '::FFFF:' . $myip;
    }
    if (filter_var($myip, FILTER_VALIDATE_IP, FILTER_FLAG_IPV6)) {
      $ipnum = ip62long($myip);
    }
    
    // pad ipnum to 39 digits with zeroes in front so we can do string comparison
    $ipnum = str_pad($ipnum, 39, '0', STR_PAD_LEFT);
    
    $stid = oci_parse($conn, 'SELECT * FROM ip2location_db24_ipv6 WHERE :ip_num <= ip_to ORDER BY ip_to FETCH FIRST 1 ROWS ONLY');
    oci_bind_by_name($stid, ':ip_num', $ipnum);
    
    oci_execute($stid);
    $num = oci_fetch_all($stid, $res, 0, -1, OCI_FETCHSTATEMENT_BY_ROW);
    
    oci_close($conn);
    
    if ($num > 0) {
      return $res[0];
    }
    else {
      die('No record found.' . "<br>\n");
    }
  }
  else {
    $err = oci_error();
    die('Error: ' . $err['message'] . "<br>\n");
  }
}

$myresult = queryIP2Location($ip);

echo 'COUNTRY_CODE: ' . $myresult["COUNTRY_CODE"] . "<br>\n";
