    Message in wp admin dashboard

    IP Geo Block: Once you logout, you will be unable to login again because your country code or IP address is not in the whitelist.Please check your Validation rule settings.
    IP Geo Block: Please download ZIP file from WordPress-IP-Geo-API and upload ip-geo-api to wp-content with write permission.

    So I downloaded file – uploaded it – uncompressed it – moved the contents so that ip geo is in wp-content (same as was setup before) – changed perms to 644 for folders and sub sub folders and all files – same message in dash – changed all to 666, 755, and all to 777 – still get same message in dashboard – and the button to uncheck ‘download at month’ is not click-able.. and the checkbox not clickable also.

    I had this set to only check the two main DBs – and the other ones where http lookups would be needed were all un-checked.

    Hi again @djsteveb,

    Sorry for this issue.

    Could you follow the steps:

    1. Confirm “/wp-content/ip-geo-api/” is as follows:

    wp-content/ip-geo-api/
    ├── index.php
    ├── ip2location
    │   ├── IP2Location.php
    │   ├── bcmath.php
    │   └── class-ip2location.php
    └── maxmind
        ├── LICENSE
        ├── class-maxmind.php
        ├── geoip.inc
        └── geoipcity.inc

    The permission of these directories should be same as others (for example “/wp-content/plugins/ip-geo-block/”).

    2. If you find “ip-geo-api” in “/wp-content/plugins/ip-geo-block/” then delete it.

    3. Once deactivate the plugin and activate it again.

    I’d appreciate you if you let me know the result.

    Thanks.

    P.S. I actually had improved this plugin to resolve the previous topic in 3.0.1.2, but have not confirmed yet. If you find anything related to it, also please let me know.

    Additional info.

    How can I fix permission troubles?

    When you’re locked out, please refer to What should I do when I’m locked out?.

    Thanks.

    Hello

    Since I can not disable the plugin I have deleted the plugin as well as the api

    I’ve downloaded it again and loaded it into content / plugins according to its instructions

    But it’s still the same message
    Sorry, you do not have permission to access this page.

    The address that the address bar puts is
    https://www.sexualitydelhombre.com.es/wp-admin/?ip-geo-block-auth-nonce=60fcff7534

    I have also tested their instructions on the ip geo bloc page, it does not work for me either, and the instruction that indicates you in the database I do not find it

    What else can I do?

    regards

    Hi @sexualidaddelhombre,

    You should not delete geolocation database API. The instruction doesn’t say so does it?

    But that’s OK. You had better to execute “clean uninstall” this plugin. Please try the following steps:

    1. Download ZIP file from here and unzip it. You can find ip-geo-block.php in the unzipped folder. It already activate the emergency function.

    2. Upload the above ip-geo-block.php to your /wp-content/plugins/ip-geo-block/. Then you may not see the “Sorry, you do not have permission to access this page.” message.

    3. Check “Enable” at “Remove all settings at uninstallation” in “Plugin settings” section and push “Save changes“.

    4. If you success, move to “Installed Plugins” page then deactivate this plugin and delete it.

    5. If you want to anther try, please re-install it through “Add New” on that page. I hope “Get Started” page may help you.

    Good luck.

    Thank you Tokkonopapa

    I will try again according to your instructions

    Hi Tokkopapa

    Since your indications have not worked for me, I have tried to modify the database according to what you say on your page

    But I can not find the table “ip_geo_block_setting”

    The only tables I have are
    _ip_geo_block_cache
    _ip_geo_block_logs
    S_ip_geo_block_stat

    Where I can match the value of “matching_rulea -1”

    Thank you very much but I can not solve the problem

    best regards

    Hi @sexualidaddelhombre,

    I’m sorry but you seem not to be a power user because you don’t now where the plugin’s options are saved. So I never recommend you to edit MySQL database table directly.

    I completely lost your situation. So could you tell me which step did you fail before doing new things? Please include as much information as possible.

    Hi, tokkonopapa

    I downloaded the zip file, I have unzipped it as you say.

    I have opened the ip-geo-block.php file with notepad and left it as it appears here

    Then I have uploaded all the files to the ip-geo-block plugin folder

    I might not set up ip-geo-block-php well, as I do not know much about this language.

    And I have not done anything else, this I have done several times

    Hi,

    Good detail and I found why you failed.

    I think you already have read “What should I do when I’m locked out?” that says:

    Download IP Geo Block, unzip and open the <code class=”highlighter-rouge”>ip-geo-block.php with an appropriate editor.

    But you wrote:

    I have opened the ip-geo-block.php file with notepad and left it as it appears here

    The “notepad” is one of an inappropriate editor for WordPress.

    At this thread, I conducted you to download ZIP file so that you don’t need to use any editor but just replace it with the original ip-geo-block.php in 3.0.2.

    Just to make sure, I’d write processes again:

    1. Download ZIP file, unzip it. Then You can find ip-geo-block.php in unzipped folder.
    2. Download 3.0.2 and unzip it. You can also find ip-geo-block.php in it. Replace it with one at 1.
    3. Upload ip-geo-block folder that you get at 2. to your /wp-content/plugins/. Overwriting the existing one in your server is OK.

    Good luck.

    Hi

    I downloaded the zip file that you indicated and I uploaded it by ftp to the plugin ip geo block

    When the page finally appears to identify itself and once done that, I get the following message

    Sorry, your request can not be accepted.

    And I do not know what to do

    I tried the zip file on another page that was locked when I was configuring it and it worked perfectly

    Thanks, but now what do I do?

    Best regards

    Hi @sexualidaddelhombre,

    I’m very sorry but I can’t understand why you fail so often.

    I downloaded the zip file that you indicated and I uploaded it by ftp to the plugin ip geo block

    When the page finally appears to identify itself and once done that, I get the following message

    What happened between first and second sentence. Were you blocked on some admin dashboard page or top page? I think you did something for example move to some page etc. Your description was too short for me to find the cause and next step.

    Thanks, but now what do I do?

    Well deactivate all plugins and do as same thing as the previous thread carefully, then activate IP Geo Block only to see if this resolves the problem.

    Or remove ip-geo-block from your /wp-content/plugins/ folder by using FTP or cPanel to stop using this plugin.

    Any way, I’d stop to support here on this topic because your issue is already out of scope of this topic. Please open a new topic for your own OR email me for more support.

    Thanks for your understanding in advance.

    Hi @djsteveb,

    I’m sorry to had discussed a bit different topic in this thread.

    I improved instruction on the error message when this issue happens in 3.0.2.1.

    IP Geo API error

    Also I described why this happens and how to fix it in the following documents:

    I hope those may help you and once I’d close this topic as resolved.

    But if you have anything related to this issue, please feel free to open a new ticket.

    Thank you for your kind understand.
