    update Centmin Mod's Maxmind GeoLite2 database routines in 123.09beta01

    - This update allows Centmin Mod users to set MM_LICENSE_KEY variable with your Maxmind token key available when you sign up for Maxmind account at https://www.maxmind.com/en/geolite2/signup i.e.
    Code (Text):
    MM_LICENSE_KEY='YOUR_MAXMIND_TOKEN_KEY'
    in persistent config file at /etc/centminmod/custom_config.inc and on first run of centmin.sh either via initial install or thereafter, will populate the new variable MM_LICENSE_KEY in /etc/csf/csf.conf config file and restart CSF Firewall (if detected already running).
    - Maxmind GeoLite2 (GeoIP 2 Lite) database is used in CSF Firewall's country look up routines as well as optionally in Centmin Mod's Nginx GeoIP2 nginx module when enabled as per guide at
    - Maxmind has changed GeoLite2 database download policy to require users register and signup up for a Maxmind account and stopped providing a publicly available download link Significant Changes to Accessing and Using GeoLite2 Databases | MaxMind Blog
    - For CSF Firewall's GeoLite2 database to work, CSF folks released CSF 13.10 with new variable MM_LICENSE_KEY in /etc/csf/csf.conf config file that you need to fill in with Maxmind account token key obtained after you sign up for Maxmind account at https://www.maxmind.com/en/geolite2/signup.

    Part 2 of this update https://community.centminmod.com/th...ite2-database-routines-in-123-09beta01.18954/ further improves it so that if MM_LICENSE_KEY isn't set in /etc/centminmod/custom_config.inc & /etc/csf/csf.conf and if the variables aren't set and /var/lib/csf/Geo database files are missing, download last publicly available geolite2 databases for CSF Firewall as at Dec 23, 2019 & extend CC_INTERVAL to 365 days before next geolite2 database update to give me time to develop alternative arrangements. Once MM_LICENSE_KEY is set in /etc/centminmod/custom_config.inc and/or /etc/csf/csf.conf, then on next centmin.sh menu run, the CC_INTERVAL will be reset back from 365 days to default 14 days for geolite2 database update checks.
