ZIP Codes Installation

It is recommended to install ZIP Codes using an SSH client due to query time limit restrictions that browser interfaces have (such as phpMyAdmin). So to install ZIP Codes you should get your hosting provide you with SSH access requisites.

  • Upload and extract ZIP Code files in some folder on your server.
  • Run the following command under the same directory where you uploaded the ZIP Codes: mysql --user=db_user --password=db_password db_name < ZIPCode.sql

you should replace db_user, db_password and ZIPCode.sql with their real values

  • Wait until the command stops running. This may take a while because of multiple queries to be run.
