FAQ

What are the requirements for WPMDb?

WPMDb is a WordPress plugin, so it may be used on a self-hosted WordPress site. (Plugins can not be used on wordpress.com blogs).
In short, the basic requirements for you to start using WPMDb are:

  • Your own hosting and domain.
  • A (preferably fresh) installation of WordPress 3.4.2 or greater.

Technical requirements for hosting are the same as WordPress requirements:

  • PHP version 5.2.4 or greater
  • MySQL version 5.0.15 or greater
  • (Optional) Apache mod_rewrite module (for clean URIs known as Permalinks)

If you do not have hosting yet, we recommend signing up to Hostgator which offers a quality hosting service with every requirements to run a WordPress site. You can sign-up to Hostgator’s baby plan for only $0.01 ($9.94 OFF) for the first month using the following coupon code: WPMDBGATOR.

WordPress is a free software and can be installed with one click from your hosting cPanel using Fantastico or a similar software that your hosting provider may have made available to you.
WordPress can also be downloaded for free from WordPress.org

Does WPMDb include streaming or download links for movies ?

No, it doesn’t.

With WPMDb, your site will include movie information, poster, screenshots and embeded trailer like a regular movie information database. Streaming and download links or linking to streaming feed or download links is illegal in many countries and a violation of international copyrights laws.

The WPMDb team does not support nor encourage this and the WPMDb plugin and the WPMDb API themselves do not include such features.
