stapel_eliz got a reaction from andrewatfornax in error messages since update to v4.2.1
The problem turned out to be that my server host hadn't actually updated PHP from version 5-point-somthing, despite my request that they do so (and assurances that they had). When Revive did the update (via cPanel's Softaculous), it asked if it could update the version of PHP but, though I'd said "yes", the update didn't apparently go through.
The solution was to do the update myself.

I'd wanted to rename the Revive directory, while leaving it in the same location on the same server under the same domain name.
I'm not sure what the change (noted in the quote above) in the "default.conf.php" file is meant to accomplish; I left this file unchanged, as it already contained my domain name.
However, I did make the changes in the "domain_name.conf.php" file, which meant the following lines were adjusted in the highlighted ways:

Today, I discovered another hack of my adserver. I'd had version 3.1, with the usual precautions, file permissions, etc.
I've forwarded specific details to the proper e-mail address for this issue; I haven't yet heard back. I have been unable to locate any other instances of this particular hack, either here on through Google in general. I know that details, etc, are not to be posted here, but I wanted to post something, so people would be aware of the issue.
If you've got unintended ads being served up on your site, and if you can't find anything in the "prepend" or "append" fields, check in "banners" for coding in "htmlcache" that doesn't match what you'd intended.
