  1. Restrict Campaigns to user accounts

    Hi @Naveen, Yes - if you put them in a separate "manager" level account, then other managers will not be able to see these.
  2. Export Statistics to Excel

    Hi @iko, So, obviously, I can't click on that link, because it's not your actual website. That's okay - I don't want to. But could you please say what version of Revive Adserver you are running, and what menus you are using to get to the URL above, please? Have you checked all your webserver log files for possible errors?
  3. Timeout when adding new banner

    And check the various limitations that are placed on upload sizes/timeouts in both your web server and your PHP configuration files.
  4. Filter active advertisers by website

    Hi @arnaud_xtra, To a certain extent, you can do this through the statistics screens, where you can go into a website, and then view what's delivering. But yes, I can see that this would be helpful at the inventory level. Do you want to sketch out some ideas for how this would work in the UI?
  5. cpanel stats vs revive stats descrepencies

    Hi @Struggling with Eververyth , Are your webalizer logs really showing pageviews? It's been a long time, but my recollection of webalizer was that, because it parsed web logs, a single page view would result in many "views", for all the images etc. on the page. It would even count things like all the Revive Adserver web server log accesses as being views as well. I still think that the link I gave above is correct, and that you are not really comparing apples with apples.
  6. Export Statistics to Excel

    Hi @iko, No idea - it could be one of many things! Perhaps you could please be more specific about exactly where you are seeing the error, and what the error(s) you are seeing on screen / in logs are?
  7. How to fill Zone with campaign?

    Hi @romubebs, I'm rather confused about what you are asking for. On one hand, you asked this: If you have sold "a few" campaigns with 2m impressions each, then, assuming "a few" means at least three, then you have at least 6m impressions to deliver. In that case, between zone 1 and zone 2, you have 5.5m impressions available. In this case, Revive Adserver is going to attempt to use all 5.5m impressions across the two zones, in an attempt to deliver 6m impressions. It will fail, of course - but the outcome will be that you deliver a banner on every impression, so, there will be a 100% fill rate. If that is the case, then it's not clear to me why you're asking about the fill rate. If, however, you actually have more inventory than you need, then Revive Adserver won't use that inventory, if the contract campaigns don't need it. In this case, that's what remnant campaigns are for, to use up the left over inventory that contract campaigns don't require. As for: I don't understand this. Zones are where banners are displayed. You can do zone chaining, if you want to define a fall-through structure for what to do if a zone has no banner that can be displayed, but it doesn't really make sense to me to "prioritise" one zone over another. I guess you mean you want to say that for a given campaign, you want to put more impressions in one zone, and fewer in another? If that's what you mean, Revive Adserver automatically does this for contract campaigns, relative to the size of the zones.
  8. Hi @Limac, I use Chrome as my primary browser, and have successfully installed the latest release of Revive Adserver using Chrome. Perhaps the issue might be in https://documentation.revive-adserver.com/display/DOCS/Revive+Adserver+Broken ?
  9. Zone properties problem

    Hi @sol, https://documentation.revive-adserver.com/display/DOCS/Only+One+Active+Banner+in+Email-Newsletter+Zones ?
  10. rv_unique huge table

    Hi @VV_silent, I don't think this is a core Revive Adserver table - does it come from a 3rd party plugin, perhaps?
  11. How to fill Zone with campaign?

    Hi @romubebs, Start using one or more remnant campaigns to utilize any remaining inventory that is not required by your contract campaigns. https://documentation.revive-adserver.com/display/DOCS/Creating+a+Campaign#CreatingaCampaign-Remnantcampaigns
  12. And if you don't what? Sorry, I don't follow what you are asking. "How important is this?" How important is what? 1. How important is it to follow the documentation? I would say that if you are experienced in server management, and you know what you are doing, then following the documentation is moderately important, because it will give you a good idea of where you might want to look, if things go wrong, but because you know what you are doing, you will be able to figure it out if you want to deviate from documentation. If you're not experienced in server management - then following the documentation will be extremely important - assuming you want things to work! 2. How important is it to use TLS (aka SSL, https://)? How important is it to you that your data is secure in transit? How important is it to you that your Revive Adserver logins not be compromised? If the answer to either of those is "very important", then using TLS is very important - unless, of course, you are using another appropriate mechanism for your needs.

    Hi @Struggling with Eververyth, https://documentation.revive-adserver.com/display/DOCS/Impressions+are+Too+Low
  14. How to fill Zone with campaign?

    Hi @romubebs, Yes, absolutely.
  15. Hi @Struggling with Eververyth , If you want to always use HTTPS to access the admin UI, then please ensure that: 1. Revive Adserver is configured to use HTTPS for the admin UI - both in terms of the webserver configuration, and in terms of ensuring that Revive Adserver knows this is what you want (see: https://documentation.revive-adserver.com/display/DOCS/Banner+Delivery+Settings); and 2. Optionally, ensure that your webserver configuration redirects HTTP calls to HTTPS.
