The absolute path to the directory where MaxMind database is installed.


The filter hook “ip-location-block-maxmind-dir” assigns the absolute path to the directory where the MaxMind geolocation database is installed.


  • $dir
    (string) /absolute/path/to/wp-content/ip-geo-api/maxmind

Use case

If you want change it to your /wp-content/uploads/ directory, put the following code snippet into the functions.php in your theme.

function my_maxmind_dir( $dir ) {
    $upload = wp_upload_dir();
    return $upload['basedir'];
add_filter( 'ip-location-block-maxmind-dir', 'my_maxmind_dir' );
NOTE: When you select "mu-plugins" (ip-location-block-mu.php) as Validation timing , you should put your code snippet into drop-in.php in Geolocation API folder instead of functions.php. See My custom functions in “functions.php” doesn’t work. in FAQ for detail.
