  1. Well a little spam here and there to get the forum activity up wouldn't be wrong. At least there might be a chance that I'll get a reply on my thread that's been dead since Monday. On a more serious note I don't see any use for an "Approved" stamp on all the users, I'm fairly sure that it'd be easier to just remove the users and optionally their posts as well. Now regarding the spam - from my personal experience with forums I've noticed that a custom security question made just for this forum helps reduce a lot of spam as this would require the spammer to manually fill it in (e.g "What is the color of the text in the Revive Adserver logo?"). For additional security a captcha can be required each time a post is made until the user reaches 5 posts.
  2. Oh, I see (also noticed that my post got a ninja edit, no chance of getting away, ha ha). I haven't seen much spam in the forums though and besides, wouldn't it just be easier to delete their posts/accounts or does this mean that they get to keep them in exchange for a missing approved stamp?
  3. There's a large green image of a stamp with the text "Approved" next to all regular users in the forums (hopefully this will keep Erik away from correcting the name). Why was this added and who is not deemed an "Approved" user?
  4. It would be useful to have the user's screen size as a delivery limitation. Would it be realistic/possible to add this in the next Revive Adserver update?
  5. You've got "http" in your tags. If I were you I'd try to replace all the "http://" with "//" so your new tag would look like: <iframe id='a1878197' name='a1878197' src='//ox.example.com/www/delivery/afr.php?zoneid=1&amp;cb=INSERT_RANDOM_NUMBER_HERE' frameborder='0' scrolling='no' width='1200' height='90'><a href='//ox.example.com/www/delivery/ck.php?n=a1878197&amp;cb=INSERT_RANDOM_NUMBER_HERE' target='_blank'><img src='//ox.example.com/www/delivery/avw.php?zoneid=1&amp;cb=INSERT_RANDOM_NUMBER_HERE&amp;n=a1878197' border='0' alt='' /></a></iframe> See if that throws an error in the console.
  6. Took a quick look at those lines and wasn't able to find anything odd. Double-check the lines that you didn't send and make sure that there aren't any file permission errors there. Also, run "chown -R replaceWithUser:replaceWithUser /home/location/to/revive" in case you missed a few files.
  7. You're better off renting a dedicated server/VPS and hosting Revive Adserver on it.
  8. Check your server logs and as there probably is a bottleneck in either your HTTP server or MYSQL (or possibly server resources).
  9. I agree with @andrewatfornax and I recommend that you whitelist the process in csf.pignore to avoid interference. Edit: didn't realize how long ago this thread was created, but hopefully this will help someone else who reads this.
  10. The problem could possibly be that your MYSQL server has reached max_connections which you can solve by editing /etc/my.cnf. Before making any changes I recommend checking the logs and running mysqltuner.pl on your server.
  11. That's a pretty good idea actually, I could create a new backup tag and calculate the fill rate based on the amount of impressions sent to the main tag and the backup tag. You're spot on about the fill rates too. The fill rate on all networks seem to have dropped unless you want to go with the low quality and deceiving addon or download/play type of ads. I'm going off-topic now, but it honestly seems as though ads online are slowly dying and I guess ad blockers, bandwidth heavy/slow and deceiving ads are to blame.
  12. I'm using a third-party tag/script to display ads on my website. Now the ad network that I'm using is saying that I have a 30% fill rate, but right now I have no way of knowing if this is true other than relying on their numbers. Is it possible to have Revive check if the ad filled?
  13. Does anyone know of a simple way to detect Mobile/Smartphone visitors in order to add a delivery limitation for them? Update: found a solution for this issue .
  14. I'm trying to edit the "Client - Browser" list to add my own option checkbox called "Mobile". I'd then have "Mobile" run a function which checks for mobile user-agents. I was originally thinking about developing a plugin for Mobile detection (and release it as well to have the code improved) as that would survive updates, but there seems to be a lot of hassle involved in making plugins. Does anyone know which file(s) I have to edit to add more options to "Client - Browser"?
