    This error indicate that your loaded binary doesn't have geoip module compiled in.

    Did you disable nginx geoip module via
    Code (Text):
    NGINX_GEOIP='n'              # Nginx GEOIP module install

    set to yes
    Code (Text):
    NGINX_GEOIP='y'              # Nginx GEOIP module install

    and recompile nginx via centmin.sh menu option 4

    To troubleshoot, you need to check the the nginx upgrade log at /root/centminlogs and instructions under Sharing logs and errors heading for using Pastebin.com or Gists to share a sanitised version of the contents of the initial install log. You can see full details at How to troubleshoot Centmin Mod initial install issues

    also what's output of
    Code:
    nginx -t

    looks like nginx 1.9.12 download itself failed or was partially downloaded as is those listed at
    • /svr-setup/nginx-develkit_v0.3.0rc1.tar.gz
    • /svr-setup/nginx-upstream-check-0.3.0.tar.gz
    could be other downloads affected due to an issue with connectivity between your server and download source.

    You can try emptying the corrupted downloads in /svr-setup try re-downloading them all if you're using 123.09beta01
    Code (Text):
    rm -rf /svr-setup
    unzip -qo /usr/local/src/centminmod/downloads/svr-setup.zip -d /

    then re-run centmin.sh menu option 4 to recompile nginx 1.9.12

    also suggests you didn't type nginx version at the right prompt as it's empty instead of nginx-1.9.12.tar.gz

    Btw, where we use the nginx geoip module ?
    And for what ?

    I think, xenforo doen't need that so if we run only xenforo or wordpress, we don't need it, right ?

    nginx.conf loads include file /usr/local/nginx/conf/geoip.conf which uses geoip

    with 123.09beta01 and now that geoip nginx module is loaded as nginx dynamic module, the nginx binary itself is a much smaller size compared to non-dynamic module. Honestly, you won't get significantly better performance when you're unloading geoip nginx module out of the box for nginx so best to just leave it there.

    123.09beta01 nginx config
    size of nginx binary
    Code (Text):
    ls -lah $(which nginx)
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 3.1M Mar 25 08:24 /usr/local/sbin/nginx

    Yeah not needed for Xenforo itself. GeoIP nginx allows you do stuff like block or rate limit country specific visitors at Nginx level. On my centminmod.com geodns latency DNS cluster of VPSes I use it to serve ads in header and sidebar area specifically to different countries' visitors. See Module ngx_http_geoip_module and another example nginx: How To Block Visitors By Country With The GeoIP Module (Debian/Ubuntu)
