    if(filter_var($client, FILTER_VALIDATE_IP)){
        $ip = $client;
    }elseif(filter_var($forward, FILTER_VALIDATE_IP)){
        $ip = $forward;
        $ip = $remote;
    $ip_data = @json_decode
    if($ip_data && $ip_data->geoplugin_countryName != null){
        $result["country"] = $ip_data->geoplugin_countryCode;
        $result["city"] = $ip_data->geoplugin_city;
