  • 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.

    Thanks!

    Running:
    WP version 3.4.2
    Plugin Version 1.5.8.1

    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.
