I made a custom get IP address function php, for getting all the details about the current access IP address from the site. When you want to target specific uses or want to collect details about the active users' IP addresses or more information about the users that time you require to use this ip_info() function. Therefore we can take their details using their IP address.

Using the IP address PHP function we can get all the information about the active users. So if you have a question about how to get users' details then this IP address PHP function will help you to get details and how to get IP addresses in PHP.

Using the below-given function you will get about how to get an IP address and further additional details like country code city address etc in PHP.

function ip_info($ip = NULL, $purpose = "location", $deep_detect = TRUE) 
    $output = NULL;
    if (filter_var($ip, FILTER_VALIDATE_IP) === FALSE) {
        $ip = $_SERVER["REMOTE_ADDR"];
        if ($deep_detect) {
            if (filter_var(@$_SERVER['HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR'], FILTER_VALIDATE_IP))
                $ip = $_SERVER['HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR'];
            if (filter_var(@$_SERVER['HTTP_CLIENT_IP'], FILTER_VALIDATE_IP))
                $ip = $_SERVER['HTTP_CLIENT_IP'];
    $purpose    = str_replace(array("name", "\n", "\t", " ", "-", "_"), NULL, strtolower(trim($purpose)));
    $support    = array("country", "countrycode", "state", "region", "city", "location", "address");
    $continents = array(
        "AF" => "Africa",
        "AN" => "Antarctica",
        "AS" => "Asia",
        "EU" => "Europe",
        "OC" => "Australia (Oceania)",
        "NA" => "North America",
        "SA" => "South America"

    if (filter_var($ip, FILTER_VALIDATE_IP) && in_array($purpose, $support)) {
        $ipdat = @json_decode(file_get_contents("" . $ip));
        if (@strlen(trim($ipdat->geoplugin_countryCode)) == 2) {
            switch ($purpose) {
                case "location":
                $output = array(
                        "city"           => @$ipdat->geoplugin_city,
                        "state"          => @$ipdat->geoplugin_regionName,
                        "country"        => @$ipdat->geoplugin_countryName,
                        "country_code"   => @$ipdat->geoplugin_countryCode,
                        "continent"      => @$continents[strtoupper($ipdat->geoplugin_continentCode)],
                        "continent_code" => @$ipdat->geoplugin_continentCode
                case "address":
                $address = array($ipdat->geoplugin_countryName);
                if (@strlen($ipdat->geoplugin_regionName) >= 1)
                        $address[] = $ipdat->geoplugin_regionName;
                if (@strlen($ipdat->geoplugin_city) >= 1)
                        $address[] = $ipdat->geoplugin_city;
                $output = implode(", ", array_reverse($address));
                case "city":
                $output = @$ipdat->geoplugin_city;
                case "state":
                $output = @$ipdat->geoplugin_regionName;
                case "region":
                $output = @$ipdat->geoplugin_regionName;
                case "country":
                $output = @$ipdat->geoplugin_countryName;
                case "countrycode":
                $output = @$ipdat->geoplugin_countryCode;
    return $output;
