    Default need help with script

    Found this script and it works for me for blocking access to website depending on country code. I have different shared hosting accounts on different hostingsprovider and on one of them this script gives a error in the server logs like:

    "PHP Deprecated: Methods with the same name as their class will not be constructors in a future version of PHP; geoPlugin has a deprecated constructor in /home/.../geoplugin.class.php on line 29"

    		if ( is_numeric($limit) )
    			$host .= "&limit={$limit}";
    		return unserialize( $this->fetch($host) );
    Is it possible to make the script run without this error message? I have contacted the script developer support but they give no answer. May someone here can help me? Thank you.

    Since the constructor method/function is empty (unless you altered the code when you posted it), you could just remove it. Otherwise, see the documentation for what the constructor definition needs to be -

    Thank you for your answer. I think i found that you meant:
    function geoPlugin() {}
