The URI to MaxMind GeoLite Legacy database for IPv4.


The filter hook “ip-location-block-maxmind-zip-ipv4” assigns the URI to Free GeoLite Legacy database file for IPv4 which can be downloaded by GZIP format.


  • $url
    (string) https://geolite.maxmind.com/download/geoip/database/GeoLiteCountry/GeoIP.dat.gz

Use case

The following code snippet in your theme’s functions.php can download the city database for IPv4.

function my_maxmind_ipv4( $url ) {
    return 'https://geolite.maxmind.com/download/geoip/database/GeoLiteCity.dat.gz';
add_filter( 'ip-location-block-maxmind-zip-ipv4', 'my_maxmind_ipv4' );
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.
