    How to set it up on your own server

    Clone the repo, update your server.json. Start the server.

    git clone git://github.com/vast-eng/mixdown-geolocation.git
    npm install
    npm dedupe
    vim server.json
    node server
    
    

    If the geoip plugin fails to link to the GeoIP.##.so files in CentOS (after build from source), then do this:

    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib/
    

    NOTE: vast-maxmind will fail on npm install if you do not have maxmind 1.4.8 installed.
