SUPPORT DISCLAIMER: If you have issues using the plugin on a local host, we won't be able to assist with troubleshooting as it falls outside of our support policy. See the Web Hosting Issues section of the MemberMouse Support Policy for more information. We have provided some general troubleshooting steps for local host issues, but if you can't get the plugin to work on a local install, ultimately we suggest that you run it on a real server. 



If you want to activate the MemberMouse plugin in a local development environment you just need to make a small change to one of the files in the MemberMouse plugin directory.



Follow the steps below to use MemberMouse in a local development environment:


  1. From the MemberMouse plugin directory, open the includes directory.






  2. Open the mm-constants.php file.

  3. Locate the line in the file that starts with $centralServer = (isLocalInstall("localhost").






  4. Starting with this line, comment out the first 3 lines of code and uncomment the last 3 lines of code. After you're done it should look like this:






  5. Save the file, re-zip it and now you'll be able to activate the MemberMouse plugin in your local environment.


(Alternate Option) Edit the MemberMouse plugin directory in WordPress:


  1. Choose Plugins from the WordPress menu sidebar.

  2. Click Edit underneath MemberMouse Platform in your list of plugins.





  3. Open the mm-constants.php file from the list on the right.





  4. Locate the line in the file that starts with $centralServer = (isLocalInstall("localhost").






  5. Starting with this line, comment out the first 3 lines of code and uncomment the last 3 lines of code. After you're done it should look like this:






  6. Click on  and now you'll be able to use the MemberMouse plugin in your local environment.
