  1. Well, on the contrary... Revive Adserver processes and stores hardly any personal data. Either way, Revive Adserver is just a piece of software. The publisher using it is ultimately responsible for how they use it. They are the 'data controller' and most likely also the 'data processor'. Nothing new here, same for any other software being used by the same publisher. GDPR is not a technical issue, it's primarily a legal issue. Also, GDPR has been in effect since May 25, 2016. Everyone should have been compliant for a long time already. The only thing new is that enforcement will start on May 25, 2018.
  2. We've compiled and published a page of instructions and tips for using Google AdSense tags in Revive Adserver. Please see Using Google AdSense with Revive Adserver on the main website.
  3. It may be that you ran into an issue that was found in the upgrade process in v4.1.0 and that was fixed in v4.1.1. Please try if using the most recent version fixes this for you. See https://www.revive-adserver.com/download/ and https://www.revive-adserver.com/blog/revive-adserver-v4-1-1-released-bug-fixes/

    How to serve Ad to mobile app through API ?

    The API built into Revive Adserver has nothing to do with the actual ad delivery, it's just for the management of your inventory and for reviewing statistics.
  5. See http://dev.maxmind.com/geoip/legacy/geolite/
  6. Technical requirements for Revive Adserver v4.0.x are listed here: https://www.revive-adserver.com/support/requirements/ As you can see, PHP 7.1.x is not yet officially supported. I've opened an issue on Github for the developers to look into this, see https://github.com/revive-adserver/revive-adserver/issues/837
  7. That table is used for tracking conversions (i.e. when someone sees or clicks an ad, and subsequently purchases something). However, it is a remnant of a very old version, it is no longer being used.

    Automatically Optimizing Banners Based on CTR?

    It should be possible to change it there in the UI, but only while working as the specific account, not as administrator.

    php7 and GD graphics

    The dashboard is the only place that uses it, so it won't affect anything else.

    Viewability percentage

    Revive Adserver does not contain any functionality to detect and/or report viewability.

    NHT: Non-human traffic

    Revive Adserver does not contain any functionality to detect and/or report NHT.

    php7 and GD graphics

    That "dashboard" page isn't extremely useful, and not at all critical to the working of the ad server. I would recommend just disabling it altogether and you won't see that message anymore. To disable it: log in as an administrator, and switch to "working as administrator" go to the Configuration tab, and then "User interface settings" menu item on the left at the very end of that page, uncheck the "Enable dashboard" checkbox don't forget to save the changes Problem solved.

    Banners through https

    That URL of the impression tracker you posted (I removed the domain since that's irrelevant) does not look like one that's generated by Revive Adserver. Did you modify the code in some way?
  15. Revive Adserver is what the name implies, an ad server. It's not an affiliate marketing/tracking application.
  16. There is no feature to 'save' such settings. All you do is to switch to the desired type of invocation code (in your case javascript) and then generate the tags (again). Next, you copy the javascript code that the application has generated and you paste it into your target environment.

    Reason not installing from source?

    The files present on Github are not packaged for installation, the files we publish on the Downloads page are.

    Using Google Adsense With Revive Adserver

    The ads you see on this forum are served via a Revive Adserver instance and are from Google AdX (the big brother of AdSense). Just to demonstrate that it does work...
  21. Google Page Speed Insights obviously has no clue about dynamic content like ad servers... No, you can not cache that file, it should be called anew every single time.

    I can't install GEO plugins

    The geotargeting plugin that ships with Revive Adserver by default will be installed automatically during install. You do not have to do anything manually.

    How do I add a Cost Per Install (CPI) model ?

    This is essentially the same as conversion tracking. However, please be aware that Revive Adserver does not support server-side conversion tracking.
  24. If you're website runs on a server with an outdated PHP version, and you include the Revive Adserver invocation code in that site, then it should work. Note: you will not integrate the Revive Adserver source code in the site, just some snippets of javascript code.

    Problem after installation

    If you're running an out of date version of PHP, it might be recommended to upgrade that too (for your own safety).
