  1. Question: Is it always necessary to manually add the two code segments above to the HTML5 banner files to make the banner link setting work and enable counting of clicks in Revive? Recently I got a HTML5 banner for the first time and saved a destination URL exactly like shown above, but still the banner was not linked to anything. I asked my graphics colleague if he can add a link with Google Web Designer and so he did. Clicking on the banner does work, but the URL saved at Revive banner settings does not have any effect.
  2. Thanks a lot! I guess I did not search enough, because I did not find those articles. 😕 Anyway, I have imported the code for the 3 plugins in question and seen from the backend, all seems to be fine. Only at the details of "IAB VAST Video Player Plugin" and "IAB VAST Report Plugin" there is not table at all. (So also not a number in the Group column as a sign of a broken plugin.) But maybe this is normal? Also, the /www/admin/extensions folder and its contents have not been re-created by importing the code … I am not sure if it's really fixed. I did/do not notice any malfuncti
  3. Hello there. I just updated to 4.2.1 and found a problem while importing plugins using the upgrade wizard, which probably was caused during the previous update. The mistake during the previous update was to enter a path containing ~ as path of the previous installation, and because this failed copying the plugins folder manually. From install.log during this update now, with correct full path given, I found that the wizard was unable to find many files in "/www/admin/extensions/" (most in "/www/admin/extensions/videoReport/") and one specific file "/extensions/bannerTypeText/oxText/generi
  4. Hi there, time and again a customer asks us to add a nofollow tag to the banner link, whether it makes sense or not, and because I see there is no way to edit link rel-tags for only one specific banner, I usually unlink the "real" banner from zones, create a second HTML only banner, where I enter the desired code with the banner file as image source, and link this one to the zone(s). Working well, but tracking does not work. If I allow the html code to be changed for tracking (default), this code will end up in the page source: … title="xyz" rel="nofollow noopener"target="_blank
  5. Unfortunately I can't. The list of PHP settings in my post above are ALL settings which are available to me (using a "managed server"). For any other changes to PHP settings I will have to open a support ticket at my hoster and ask them to change the configuration, and they might not agree since it is not a PHP error.
  6. Here are all PHP configuration options and their current settings which are available from my hoster: display_errors – off allow_url_fopen – off expose_php – off mbstring.func_overload – 0 memory_limit – 160M max_execution_time – 60 upload_max_filesize – 30M max_file_uploads – 20 max_input_vars – 1000 extensions – none (available: APC, ImageMagick) zend_extensions – none (available: Ioncube Loader, Source Guardian, eAccelerator, Zend Guard, OPcache, XDebug) However I think none of these will help with mail problems. :(
  7. It is not resolved, at least for us. Until August 2017 everything was fine: the "From:" address of all Revive mails was exactly as saved in settings. Since then, it is looking like this: From: a <a@server01.our-hoster.com> "server01" is the technical server name (not our domain name) and "our-hoster.com" is the domain name of our hosting service. Where the "a" does come from, I do not know. I am not sure what has happened in August 2017. Maybe it started with PHP updates? We were using 7.0 in 2017, now 7.1, soon 7.2
  8. Hi there, we are using the Revive adserver since many years on our system, even when it was called „openx“, but now of course it is the latest version of Revive. Running perfectly fine and smooth. :) We never changed the local path and URL and so it still is like oursite.com/openx/www/admin and the local path is like …user/web/openx/ for the Revive installation. But „OpenX“ is a commercial service nowadays and it might be confusing for our customers using the address "oursite.com/openx" for our own Revive ad server. How complex and what are the steps to change the local path and URL
  9. I too found this user and deleted it. But nothing suspicious seems to be going on on our server. How do I make sure? Currently using Revive Adserver v4.0.2 running on Apache, PHP 7.1.15 and MySQL 5.7.21-1.
  10. Hi there. I joined this discussion earlier, before you guys started to get really into technical details. Which is great. :) Unfortunately I can not contribute very much, but might I suggest something: I really think, especially considering the problems with more complex or unique banner codes etc., two simple and elegant solutions while using the same simple banner code for email banners as now: Make revive swap the banner & link which are returned for this email zone. Maybe a) on a timely basis, trying to make it equally shared for all campaigns in that zone according to t
  11. Well I'm confused too. This malfunction appeared just out of nowhere, neither configuration of Revive nor PHP was changed. To see if it helps. I changed the from address at email settings more than once, settings are being saved and I can see them in .conf.php file – but they don't work. The mails I receive are showing this address: From: "a" <a@server23.our-host.de> The mails some customers receive show this senders address: From: "Default Account" <admin@our-main-domain.de> Which is a valid address at "our-main-domain", but it is not used in Revive anywhe
  12. That's a bit like hacking Revive. :) But I'd rather do this with in-house means, or with a good valid plugin or not at all. After all, it's production, not experimental. I found two plugins to use multiple banners in an email zone. The price is $60 each. 1. http://www.openxmods.com/openxmods/Multiple-ads-in-an-email-zone/prod_1461.html They don't explain how their plugin works. The 2-server and source code options are slightly cheaper here. 2. http://www.reviveadservermod.com/others/multiple-ads-in-an-email-zone You can see an example of the bannercode here and a short expla
  13. Creating single day campaigns is just too much work, in our case it's not worth it because the email banner is just some "extra" that we would give to those who have booked a regular website banner campaign. Now it can be only one. Using a plugin for changing the email banner sounds nice though.
  14. Hello, I see there is a limitation of only ony active banner in Email/Newsletter zones as explained here https://documentation.revive-adserver.com/display/DOCS/Only+One+Active+Banner+in+Email-Newsletter+Zones But I wonder, can Revive change this banner on a daily basis? I thought of creating campaigns that would last a single day and have another campaign each day, but the work for this setup is too much … also, I would rather use some existing campaigns and include the email zone to linked zones where it fits.
  15. Hi there, I'm sorry, but I am continously getting bogus "from" addresses in the email sent by Revive! Using Revive Adserver v4.0.2 running on Apache, PHP 7.0.22 and MySQL 5.5.57-0+deb8u1, OPcache enabled. Instead of the name and address specified in the email section of the configuration, the mails now have the (nonexisting) username "a" and the domain name of our server as sender's address (which will not work for receiving email): From: "a" <a@server23.our-host.de> What can I do? Though the parameter "logOutgoing=1" is configured, I can not find an email log in the r
  16. Hi there, I just noticed that an automatic email about "Impending campaign expiration" which Revive has sent to our customer (using a French user account) has a wrong from address. Strange however, the same email sent to me as administrator (in English) has the correct from address which has been set in Configuration/Email Settings. Furthermore, that email "admin@oursite.net" actually is the real default administrator email adress used in varios server settings, but it is NOT being used anywhere in Revive for user or administrator accounts and oursite.net is not even the domain name
  17. By the time, I found the "Easy Code Placement" plugin that makes it possible to enter JavaScript code at (almost) any place in WordPress, also on menu items. https://de.wordpress.org/plugins/easy-code-placement/ This plugin makes it possible to enter the full Revive code for a (text) banner as a menu item. I've tested it with asynchronous JS tag and the long Javascript tag (molded to one line), both working fine on the main menu. I haven't tested it with image banners however, not sure if that would work too.
  18. Hi there. I am using Revive Adserver for quite I while and I think a can find my way around, but I did not fully understand why I can link a campaign to a zone, and also link the banner to a zone. 99% of my ads have one advertiser, leading one active campaign and one banner. Usually I only link the banner to the zone and it is working fine. Is this okay or should I always link the campaign too? Does it make a difference? Thanks for any answer. :)
  19. Hi there, I just added a new advertiser with a new campaign and banner, everthing as usual and as I have done it several times before, but this time the banner would not show. I then checked the error log which is set to record errors and warnings, and it shows a lot of warnings just at the time when I had added the new campaign. Only one thing "special" about that campaign: It had an apostrophe (this one: ’ – UFT code U+2019 or &#8217; ) in the advertisers name. I have changed the name (removed the apostrophe) and now it seems to work just fine, no more warnings. Not sure i
  20. I'm not getting access to the Apache or PHP logs, but I can activate PHP error reporting on my server. This is what I get, it says the error is a dl() call. dl() has been disabled by default since PHP 5.3: as refered on the php documentation: http://php.net/manual/en/function.dl.php Must I enable it? Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function dl() in /public_html/revive4/lib/pear/PEAR.php:758 Stack trace: #0 /public_html/revive4/lib/pear/MDB2/Driver/mysql.php(400): PEAR->loadExtension('mysql') #1 /public_html/revive4/lib/OA/DB.php(196): MDB2_Driver_mysql->conne
  21. Hi there, I tried to upgrade our desperately outdated Revive 3.0.3 to Revive 4 exactly following the upgrade docs at https://www.revive-adserver.com/support/upgrading/ Copied the database, extrated the archive to a new folder ("revive4"), copied the configuration file to the new location, changed database info, and everything else. But instead of the upgrade wizard I'm getting only an empty page (HTTP error 500) at www.my.domain/revive4 – the URL has changed to http://www.my.domain/revive4/www/admin/install.php but the screen is empty. Also there was no error.log. The Revive ins
  22. It just happened. Here is the code of the relevant part, which is the only part where this banner is mentioned inside the page source. Nothing is double there?!?
