    Too much remnant ads

    I have multiple contract campaigns and 2 remnant campaigns targeting a specific zone. The inventory is far from sold so I would expect all contract campaigns to reach their daily limit with easr. However when browsing the site I see a huge amount of remnant ads consuming 60% of the zone impressions while all the contract campaigns are under delivering. Even the ones set with a high priority. eg. - Contract Campaign with 1 banner: Target 3000, actual delivery 2200 - Contract Campaign with 1 banner: Target 4000, actual delivery 3000 What am I doing wrong? 34,130

    Cookies (new EU legislation)

    Upgrades are normally an easy job but you should always make a copy of the database and the old installation. I've also changed the new privacy settings but did not test the new cookie. Good luck tobean

    Please let me know if the upgrade worked. I never did a revive upgrade and knowing somebody else succeeded will give me extra confidence.

    Cookies (new EU legislation)

    Hi Tobean, I was surprised to see there is a new GDPR release giving extra control on the OAID cookie since yesterday evening https://www.revive-adserver.com/blog/revive-adserver-v4-1-4-released/ Hope this helps. I'll try and to the upgrade this weekend. Kind regards, Tim
  7. Hi I am setting up a fresh Revive install and I am having a brain blip. According to: https://documentation.revive-adserver.com/display/DOCS/Running+Maintenance it says: 1 * * * * /path/to/php /path/to/revive_server/scripts/maintenance/maintenance.php www.example.com should be the cron entry, is www.example.com the url of Revive or the site I have setup for ads inside revive? E.G. Revive install at www.blahads.com and the site its serving is www.blahsite.com which would I use? Also if I have revive running on multiple urls such as www.blahads2.com (with 2 config files in var?) should I have a extra cron for each of those addresses or should I just have a single cron which will do maintenance for all? The 2 urls would *run* the exact same revive install with the same www.blahsite.com inside it as well as database. I am just trying to figure out best practice etc as we use several urls to access revive. Thanks for the help!

    Max Db connections while maintenance

    Hello Andrew, Thanks for the reply. Can you please tell me if we can change the time of data_bkt_m to update? because on my end it gets updated every day in the afternoon from 2-4 PM IST where I get max delivery of traffic which cause the max DB connections and server goes down. Please let me know the solution so that I can change the time when data_bkt_m gets updated. Thanks

    Rotating Banners

    I am using al.php and inside the layerstyle.inc.php I rotate the banner using jquery. How do I trigger the lg.php? each time banner is displayed call the lg.php?

    Max Db connections while maintenance

    The data_bkt_m table is updated in real time as impressions for delivery are logged. The maintenance process will read from, and delete rows, from that table - but not insert anything.

    What Files, What Permissions

    Check that all the files in the directories & sub-directories are also writable?

    The calls you have in the code above to the lg.php script are the ones that perform impression logging. Are they being triggered?
  13. Revive Adserver v4.1.4 is available now. This new version of the Revive Adserver software includes two new settings that can be enabled, one to prevent the creation of a unique but random ID value in the OAID cookie, and the other to anonymise IP addresses coming into Revive Adserver before they are processes. These new settings will help with GDPR compliance. To take advantage of the new settings, log in as an Administrator and go to the Configuration tab. The Banner Delivery Settings page is automatically displayed. The new settings are in a section called “Privacy Settings”: Put a checkbox in the setting(s) you want to enable and don’t forget to click the “Save changes” button at the end of the page. If the “Disable unique Viewer id cookies” setting is On, any existing OAID cookies for visiting browsers will be replaced with the same value for every visitor: 01000111010001000101000001010010. This is the binary representation of the acronym GDPR. New visitors will also receive a new OAID cookie with value 01000111010001000101000001010010. If the “Anonymise viewer IP address” setting is On, then the Revive Adserver software will turn the 4th octet of any IP address it deals with into a zero, thus making it meaningless when it comes to identifying individual visitors. For example: 192.168.1.123 will become 192.168.1.0. The anonymized IP address will subsequently be used for geotargeting (if enabled) or for recording conversion statistics. In this release v4.1.4, these two settings will be Off by default in the interest of backward compatibility. In a future release, most likely v4.2.0, the defaults will become On. Below is a list of all changes in Revive Adserver v4.1.4: New feature: Added new privacy settings under ‘banner delivery settings’ to optionally stop tagging viewers via a cookie with a unique identifier (OAID) and to anonymise IP addresses, in order to better comply with GDPR regulations. Fixed an issue with evaluating very large delivery rules that caused an internal error with the PCRE library. Reverted a change introduced in v4.1.2 that was preventing preferences from being properly saved. Full release notes for v4.1.4 can be found on our Github page. Download, install and upgrade Revive Adserver v4.1.4 is available for download now. Once downloaded, please refer to the instructions for Installations of Revive Adserver or for Upgrading Revive Adserver. Make sure that the server being used meets the minimum technical requirements.

  14. Hello Team, I would like to know when does revive store records into rv_data_bkt_m database? Currently, I am running manual maintenance midnight every hour. But somehow when I see my logs it records gets insert every afternoon due to which DB connections go high and it affects the delivery of banners. Also, I have setup time preference as Asia/Calcutta is there any relation to maintenance or adding the records to the database? Can you please tell me the way out so that database store records at night only. Thanks

    Rotating Banners

    I achieved the rotation banner by adding an HTML banner and getting the regular banners on the same campaign. Now I have 4 banners, 3 normal image banners and 1 html banner. My problem is I cannot get the impressions count of individual banner. I can only get the clicks counts but not the impression. How do I add codes for to get impressions? Thanks in advance. here is my code: <ul id="images"> <li> <a href="//www/delivery/ck.php?oaparams=2__bannerid=59__zoneid=39__cb=52a31c584c__oadest=http%3A%2F%2Fgoogle.com%2Fsearch?q=bridge" target="_blank"> <img src="//bridge_079ec2a823c10e6f49518419301de894.jpg" alt="bridge"> </a> <div id="beacon_52a31c584c" style="position: absolute; left: 0px; top: 0px; visibility: hidden;"> <img src="//www/delivery/lg.php?bannerid=59&amp;campaignid=35&amp;zoneid=39&amp;OAZCAP=99999&amp;OASZCAP=99999&amp;loc=http%3A%2F%2Fgoogle.com%2Fsearch?q=bridge&amp;cb=52a31c584c" width="0" height="0" alt="" style="width: 0px; height: 0px;"> </div> </li> <li> <a href="//www/delivery/ck.php?oaparams=2__bannerid=60__zoneid=39__cb=52a31c584c__oadest=http%3A%2F%2Fgoogle.com%2Fsearch?q=lake" target="_blank"> <img src="//lake_e8f3f217ad36a8058a8817b446da9063.jpg" alt="street"> </a> <div id="beacon_52a31c584c" style="position: absolute; left: 0px; top: 0px; visibility: hidden;"> <img src="//www/delivery/lg.php?bannerid=60&amp;campaignid=35&amp;zoneid=39&amp;OAZCAP=99999&amp;OASZCAP=99999&amp;loc=http%3A%2F%2Fgoogle.com%2Fsearch?q=lake&amp;cb=52a31c584c" width="0" height="0" alt="" style="width: 0px; height: 0px;"> </div> </li> <li> <a href="//www/delivery/ck.php?oaparams=2__bannerid=61__zoneid=39__cb=52a31c584c__oadest=http%3A%2F%2Fgoogle.com%2Fsearch?q=shoes" target="_blank"> <img src="//shoes_49e9a298d50d8d47666fae14f62d335b.jpg" alt="taxi"> </a> <div id="beacon_52a31c584c" style="position: absolute; left: 0px; top: 0px; visibility: hidden;"> <img src="//www/delivery/lg.php?bannerid=61&amp;campaignid=35&amp;zoneid=39&amp;OAZCAP=99999&amp;OASZCAP=99999&amp;loc=http%3A%2F%2Fgoogle.com%2Fsearch?q=shoes&amp;cb=52a31c584c" width="0" height="0" alt="" style="width: 0px; height: 0px;"> </div> </li> <ul>

  17. svsanchez, Ian´s now twice deleted/edited post is refering to my starter posting. Yes, I misspelled Eriks name and no, neither my post wasn´t decent nor an offense. I don´t know what has hurt his feelings so badly. It´s a purpose orientated post and if it is, that I don´t came crawling on my knees to beg for something to fondle someones ego, then of course I am guilty as charged. Needless to say, how unreasonable and unprofessional these moderator posts appear to me. But that´s just my two cents. Regarding the newly added GDPR section in the Revive help section, there is nothing new in it, what we haven´t already known before. It just sums it up. In other words: Revive isn´t and won´t be GDPR compliable and there are no plans announced to do so. Sure, it´s an open sorce project and therefor I can´t argue, when I get the feeling the core team has decided to ignore the problem, as this would require an overhowling of the Revive code source. Even when they would have said we don´t give a fuck (what they in fact didn´t and of course wouldn´t be decent) , we couldn´t complain. May be we´ll be lucky to see some other coders coming up with a plug-in in the future, that takes care about the proper handling of the GPDR problems. Sad situation for us publishers, but with regards to the GPDR I see no other way to avoid legal cases and fines as to shutdown my Revive installation tonight. But that´s what every publisher has to weigh for himself. Just out of curiosity: what will you do, svsanchez?
  18. Ian, I received an email suggesting I had asked something in an "indecent way" and that I spelled someones name incorrectly. I'm sorry if "to ditch" is an indecent word, English is not my main language and I by that I meant "to change". But it seems more indecent to me to leave Mr. Sperber's reply unanswered and I don't see where I misspelled someone's name. But since I got your attention, let me ask you something that is not mentioned on your link: how does Revive comply with GDRP when it serves an ad to a European visitor installing a cookie and reading his IP for geolocation before consent has been granted? In other words, is there a way to obtain consent from the European visitor before Revive installs a cookie and serves an ad?
  19. https://www.revive-adserver.com/blog/revive-adserver-gdpr/ Come on guys, may I remind you it's an open source project?
  20. Still no answer from the admins and just 2 days to go... Have you ditched Revive Ad Server?

    What Files, What Permissions

    I correctly applied those permissions yesterday, 777 so those directories and their sub-directories, yet when I logged in today I got this error again: Error: File permission errors detected.These may impact the accurate delivery of your ads,See the debug.log file for the list of unwritable files I double checked, and the permissions are correct. Also, I checked the debug.log, which I emptied yesterday, and nothing is there. Any ideas?

    What Files, What Permissions

    Right now I have those directories all set to 644, but am getting this error: Error: File permission errors detected. These may impact the accurate delivery of your ads, See the debug.log file for the list of unwritable files Can you tell me the exact permissions they need? I thought 644 does allow the server to read and write, but apparently not. Do I need to allow the world to read and write with 777? Thank you in advance.
  25. Here is what I found. My cronjob, which worked fine for years like this: 0 * * * * php -f /home/site/public_html/revivieadserver/maintenance/maintenance.php >/dev/null 2>&1 suddenly, at least to me anyway, needed to be like this: 0 * * * * php -f /home/site/public_html/revivieadserver/maintenance/maintenance.php localhost >/dev/null 2>&1 The mysql restarts may have been just a coincidence, and my server auto-updated and installed a new version of cpanel or something else, but something changes and now I must include "localhost" in the cronjob. I hope this helps someone else!

    Could an experienced user confirm this is not possible?
