  • How did you install powerdns? Do you have the powerdns geoip backend itself installed? – Håkan Lindqvist Sep 13 at 20:30
  • I installed by command yum -y install pdns pdns-backend-mysql.x86_64 php-mcrypt pdns-recursor pdns-tools yaml-cpp-devel – danone Sep 14 at 8:17
  • geoip backend in centos 8 removed after version of 4.2 there is no way to install. – danone Sep 14 at 9:32
  • uninstall centos/epel packages and installing from upstream repo may be helpful? repo.powerdns.com – Håkan Lindqvist Sep 14 at 9:36
  • you're right powerdns repo has geoip backend module where others not thank you very much if you can make it I will tick as answered. – danone Sep 14 at 9:42

The PowerDNS packages in the EPEL for Centos 8 repository do not appear to include a package for the GeoIP backend.

The upstream PowerDNS repo for Centos 8 does have a pdns-backend-geoip package, though.

Uninstalling the EPEL PowerDNS packages and instead installing PowerDNS Authoritative from the upstream repo (including the pdns-backend-geoip package) should help.
