  2. How can banners be optimized automatically using a performance algorithm in Revive Ad Server? I would like to automatically drop banners out of rotation that have less than some specific CTR and more than some specific number of impressions in each zone. I would like to be able to add banners in bulk (to all zones) and then have the software automatically figure out which banners work well in which zones and deactivate the banners in the zones where they are doing poorly (and deactivate the banners completely if they perform poorly in all zones). I am not using conversion tracking for all campaigns, so CTR would be the best way to determine winning and losing banners. Is there some way to do this natively in Revive? If not, does anyone know of a plugin that can help to accomplish this goal? Thank you.
  3. Hello, I've some trouble. I set well the banner and the destination url. when the banner is clicked a new widows opens but impossible to see the destination page, only black page. I see well my openx server address with destination script in the url tab of the browser. what can I do?
  4. Hi @netid83, You will need to do some work yourself outside of Revive Adserver, because the Async JS tags don't offer banner reloading (aka refresh after X seconds). Companion positioning within campaigns may be of help to you, though.
  5. All the ads to be displayed in a single location on the page.
  6. I have 12 ads and they need to be displayed in 4 bunches of 3 ads each. The 3 ads in a bunch will have a carousal effect for every 10 secs. This bunch will be displayed for 2 minutes, after which the next bunch will take into effect. The process repeats for all the 4 bunches and starts again. How can I setup my adserver to achieve this? My preferred zone type will be Asynchronous JS type. Please advise.

  8. Hi Andrew I did do the procedure that you advised me but I still have the same problem.
  9. Hi @svsanchez, As noted by @Dave Brain above, if you are expecting to perform an upgrade, but you're seeing the install screen, then the Revive Adserver install/upgrade wizard is not finding your previous installation's configuration files, either because: You have not copied the configuration files across from your old installation directory; or You are accessing the Revive Adserver install/upgrade wizard using a different top level domain from the existing installation that you are attempting to upgrade.
  10. Hi @juan, For whatever reason, you have manged to get a duplicate entry for the phpads_preferences_preference_name key in the phpads_preferences database table. You will need to log into the database, and review the duplicates (SELECT * FROM phpads_preferences WHERE preference_name = 'default_banner_image_url';) and decide which entry is (or entries are) the duplicate(s), and delete the duplicate row(s).
  11. Hi @Kurogane, Yes, this is possible. There is no reason why you cannot include tags from multiple Revive Adserver installations on one website page.
  12. Hi @michal,
  13. The cache files are stored in Revive Adserver var/cache directory.
  14. Hi @aki, What version of Revive Adserver are you running?
  15. Hi @wilson diaz, Please don't do that - the webserver should not be given write access to all of the Revive Adserver directories & files - you're just asking for your system to be compromised by allowing every file to be modified by the webserver. Instead, completely remove your installation directory, and start the installation again from scratch, but this time, only grant those permissions that the install wizard asks for. It's quite clear which directories need to be recursively chmoded - the install wizard even gives you the commands that you can copy and paste into your server's console to make the changes, given that you're on a *nix system.
  16. Hi everyone, Firstfull sorry for my english I have problem with statistics by countries, some banners have statistics, but some do not. Installed plugin is geoTargeting oxMaxMindGeoIP. In some banners there are country names with stats, but in some there are not even name of countries. Revive Adserver was installed before me, by another developer, so I do not know how it works and how to fix problem. looking for your help. Thank you in advance.
  17. Good morning I want to install revive but when it do the check, show the next message: Configuration of your webserver does not meet the requirements of the Revive Adserver. In order to proceed with installation, please fix all errors. For help, please see our documentation and FAQs and File Permissions - 7 errors File permission errors have been detected, and must be fixed before you can continue. To fix the errors on a Linux system, try typing in the following command(s): chmod -R a+w /var/www/html/adserver/var chmod -R a+w /var/www/html/adserver/var/cache chmod -R a+w /var/www/html/adserver/var/plugins chmod -R a+w /var/www/html/adserver/var/templates_compiled chmod -R a+w /var/www/html/adserver/plugins chmod -R a+w /var/www/html/adserver/www/admin/plugins chmod -R a+w /var/www/html/adserver/www/images For more help, please see the Revive Adserver documentation. Check name Current value Status /var/www/html/adserver/var Directory must be writeable NOT writeable /var/www/html/adserver/var/cache Directory must be writeable NOT writeable /var/www/html/adserver/var/plugins Directory must be writeable NOT writeable /var/www/html/adserver/var/templates_compiled Directory must be writeable NOT writeable /var/www/html/adserver/plugins Directory must be writeable NOT writeable /var/www/html/adserver/www/admin/plugins Directory must be writeable NOT writeable /var/www/html/adserver/www/images Directory must be writeable NOT writeable I put chmod -R 777 to the folder revive but the error continue. The operative system is centos 7. Thank so much
  18. Hey guys, is there a simple and straight forward updating procedure like a "one-click" update or do I always need to take the steps described here: This sounds like a lot of effort for a "small" update like from 4.0.0 to 4.0.1 Thaks Michael
  19. Any solution? I have the same problem with the timestamp on WP.
  20. Hi @amitmjoshi, I would assume that for those channels where you have an impression count of 0, the limitations are such that Revive Adserver is never delivering banners?
  21. Hi @Fred Weiss, Your configuration file will be where Revive Adserver has the definition of the directory where it's looking for files etc. I would take a look there and confirm that it's all correct.
  22. Hi @omml, No, I don't think so - the closest would be an image invocation tag, I suspect?
  23. It took a while - but Revive Adserver now has a Patreon page, where you can help us out financially, and we can spend more time providing support, writing documentation, and improving the product! Learn more at:
  24. Here are the list of all directories that Revive Adserver requires be set so that the webserver user can read/write to them. Please note that these permissions must be set recursively, so that all files/subdirectories of these can also be read/written to by the webserver user. revive-adserver/var revive-adserver/var/cache revive-adserver/var/plugins revive-adserver/var/templates_compiled revive-adserver/plugins revive-adserver/www/admin/plugins revive-adserver/www/images
  25. What does something like Chrome's developer tools tell you? Is it the delivery of the Revive Adserver code that is broken, or the delivery of the image itself? What is the HTTP error code for the part (or parts) that is (are) failing?
  26. Hi @haychart, Well, that error message seems pretty self-explanatory to me. I am not sure what you are asking, if anything?
