  1. Hi, I have just performed an upgrade from 3.1 to 4.0 and found out the directions of your article: Upgrading Revive Adserver - https://www.revive-adserver.com/support/upgrading/ Is somehow not accurate and there is some room for improvement. Point 2. says: 2. Run the upgrade wizard After the database changes have been completed, the upgrade wizard will display the folder path of the ‘old’ copy of the ad server. Well... it turns out that there was just an empty field, actually asking for such path: Upgrading to Revive Adserver 4.0.0 Configuration settin
  2. Well, in my case, when using a cPanel based server, the absolute path was required. Something like: /home/cpanel_username/public_html/revive/ Of course just replace cpanel_username with your cPanel user account (username) and replace revive with the name of the directory of your Revive installation.
  3. Alright, upgrade completed successfully. And we decided to install version 3.1.0 instead. If you allow me some more feedback in regards to the article for upgrades: http://www.revive-adserver.com/support/upgrading/ 3. The suggested command to dump the MySQL database will not work properly sometimes: mysqldump -uUSER -pPASSWORD OLDDATABASE –skip-lock-tables > FILE.sql For instance, in our case we had MySQL 5.1.73 and the command ended up with the error: mysqldump: Couldn't find table: "–skip-lock-tables" And an empty dump file. Using "skip-add-locks" instead of "–
  4. Thanks for your reply, Erik. In regards to the upgrade process, it is suggested to move the banner image storage location: http://www.reviveconsultant.com/articles/how-to-move-the-banner-image-storage-location-in-revive-adserver/ and I would like to provide some feedback: 1. I wonder why such directions are not included in the installation process by default. If such steps make easy further upgrade process, I believe it should be done by default. But that's just my opinion. 2. On the last bit of that page, there is this statement: "when you do a software upgrade in the
  5. Hi, This is my first time using Revive Adserver, when I installed version 3.0.5 almost a year ago. I wish there would be an easiest way to update/upgrade Revive, because the current suggested method involves access to SSH to run commands and also the creation of a new database, as seen here: http://www.revive-adserver.com/support/upgrading/ But for the time being I wonder if when updating from 3.0.5 to 3.0.6 I just need to upload (and overwrite) the files from 3.0.6… or if I really need to run a full upgrade process, including the database thing. Thank you.
  6. Thanks for your reply, Andrew. I'm still trying to figure out why does this happen, though, because I have double checked the two points you mentioned and there is still a huge gap between the site stats and the number of impressions delivered by Revive. Thanks again.
  7. Hi, I'm just learning how to use this software, but I guess the option to exclude IPs that you are looking for is here: http://documentation.revive-adserver.com/display/DOCS/Global+Settings
  8. Hi, The statistics software I use for my site (AWStats) is reporting around 500,000 page views (impressions?) per month. A single banner I'm now serving through Revive Adserver is showing up roughly 2.500 times a day, according to Revive statistics, which would mean around 75,000 page views (impressions?) in a month. Such banner is not sharing the zone, so every single page view should be recorded for it. How could one explain such discrepancy? Thank you.
