That should work.

But you do need to be sure that you are using the nginx that was built
after this ./configure run.

That error message means that the nginx that is being used, does not
include the geoip module.

If you call the same nginx binary with a "-V" argument, it should show
you the configure arguments that were used when building that binary.

Does that show the full "configure" line that you expect? If not, then
something has happened between your "make" and your deployment.

(I've not tested with openresty, but I believe that it should be the
same as stock nginx from this perspective.)
