    Does WooCommerce install the GeoLite2-Country.mmdb database to my uploads folder?
    It showed up in a scan as a changed file – I didn’t put it there myself… does Woo do this as part of its install?

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

  • I have the same question. I get a file size notice for it when using Duplicator plugin.

    Hey @jonburr, yes that is part of WooCommerce. In version 3.4, we moved to using Geolite2 for WooCommerce.

    This is used to allow for customer geolocation to be determined locally on your site. For older sites that are running PHP 5.4 or lower, geoloaction must be determined through API calls.

    Thank you, Phil. It showed up in a security scan.. having been hacked recently, I deleted it… 🙂
    Is there a direct link to find and download the .mmdb file in order to restore it?
