Added geoip_country GeoIP.dat; to http section on nginx.conf, but when I am doung configtest

[root@www nginx]# nginx -t
nginx: [emerg] unknown directive "geoip_country" in /etc/nginx/nginx.conf:40
nginx: configuration file /etc/nginx/nginx.conf test failed

Can anybody help me? Thanks beforehand.

My answer:


Dynamic modules must be explicitly loaded from the main section of the nginx configuration.

main {
    load_module "modules/ngx_http_geoip_module.so";
