    Decode JSON from a RESTful request Link to this post

    Hi All,

    I maybe silly doing it this way and please if you have a better suggestions I would love to hear it...

    I am trying to get the Remote IP address, but the native PHP $_SERVER variable are not giving me the information that I need to work out the clients country.

    Basically I am building a site for a .com.au company and they want to either tell their .co.nz customers that they should be going to the .co.nz site not the .com.au site (hope that makes sense).

    So I am trying to get the users IP address but it is always coming back as 192.168.*.* etc because they are behind routers etc.

    I have found a site that returns a JSON value for the IP address that has been correct each time I have tried it and a friend in NZ has also tried.


    Anyway, I notice that http://doc.silverstripe.org/restfulservice doesn't support JSON. Is there any way for me to get this information into a variable so I can feed it into my other function that pulls back the country of the IP address...

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance,

    Not sure if this helps, but you could always use the PHP json_decode function to convert JSON encoded values into PHP objects/variables.
