cannot write to file error when attempting GeoLiteCity db download. (4 posts)

    When trying to download and install the Maxmind GeoLiteCity database, I get the following error:

    download_file error: cannot write to file, check server permission settings

    I went to the link directly, and downloaded "GeoLiteCity.dat.gz" but don't know where or how to install this database. Please advise how to proceed. I see that I am not the only one who has this problem. Several other people here and in forums online are experiencing this same issue.

    As I am not going to display anything to visitors, but simply want this as a tool for my use as an admin, I am not sharing any URL.

    Dear Mike!

    Your plugin is much usefull!

    I have a problem with download of data:

    "Verificando actualizações de Maxmind GeoLiteCity database
    PHP Memory Limit is 64M, increasing is not needed.
    Ligando a URL: http://geolite.maxmind.com/download/geoip/database/GeoLiteCity.dat.gz
    curl_last_mod error: fetching timestamp failed for URL, 404 not found? "

    How can i fix this?

    Thanks and Regards,

    Tony Franco
