Support » Plugin: IP2Location Redirection » Can’t upload Database file – just pumps out more files

  • I need to redirect users from specific locations to a sub directory on the server. I have found this plugin, but the instructions are pretty unclear.

    So working on a Mac, downloaded the database.bin file ‘decompressed it’ and it fires out a similar bin file with an extension: .cpgz – not sure what that it.

    But anyways, uploaded to the plugins directory and I am still getting the

    “WARNING: Your IP2Location database was outdated”

    not sure if I’m installing this correctly or not. Need some pointers if possible.

    UPDATE, I have downloaded the database through the dashboard to IP2LOCATION-LITE-DB1.IPV6.BIN

    The IP Query is showing through Tunnel Bear that I am located in Sydney, but the redirect isn’t taking place.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    @ben1982 Do provide the author log in access to your site, it’s never safe and I’m about to explain to the author how that gets people into trouble here.

    @ip2location I’ve deleted your offer to login to your user’s site. I’m am 100% sure you mean well but please never ask for credentials on these forums.

    Now for the why: The internet is a wonderful place full of very nice people and a few very bad ones. I’m sure everyone here is very nice however, by giving some ones keys to your house you are trusting they wont steal anything. Likewise the person who takes the keys is now responsible for the house FOREVER.

    If something was to go wrong, then you the author may well legally become liable for damages, which they would not normally have been as their software is provided without warranty.

    Please be aware that repeatedly asking for credentials will result in us asking you to repeatedly stop before escalating up to the plugins team.

    Why has this been marked as resolved?

    I appreciate the fact that author details were requested and no, I’m not going to be able to give them to @ip2location. But my issue is still active and there doesn’t seem to be much out there to help.

    @ip2location I can however, share screenshots of the plugin and send them here via drop box to give you an insight into my setup?

    Are you able to help?
