How to block visiotrs by country without using GEoIP module
Hello! recently I installed the GeoIp module and followed the tutorial provided in this link https://www.howtoforge.com/nginx-how-to-block-visitors-by-country-with-the-geoip-module-debian-ubuntu but it seems the GeoIp module is not able to block the visitors from a particular country.
For instance, I wanted to block the visitors from Japan, I tried using proxy for Japan and I could still access my site. Not only that, my analytics report shows some users from Japan. So I am definitely sure the GeopIp is not doing the work.
I want to known if there are other ways to block visitors by country, any other NGinx modules or settings.
Any help will be grateful!
