  1. I'm the first to admit that Revive Adserver is not perfect here (and would love to have the time to completely re-think this problem!). However, one often overlooked issue with delivering contract campaigns where there is "enough" inventory is the effect that campaign and/or banner capping or delivery limitations has on the "available" inventory. Do you have any of these limitations set up?
  2. What you want to do is add a remnant campaign to your zones, to "mop up" any "spare" inventory that Revive Adserver doesn't need for your contract campaigns. See the documentation on the different campaign types: http://documentation.revive-adserver.com/display/DOCS/Creating+a+campaign
  3. Yes, it should still be possible. However, hardware has moved on a lot since then, and I'm honestly not sure that this is the best way to do it. You would need to have a really, really, really massive installation to actually need this. Better would be to scale out your solution with multiple delivery servers, but stick with a single database.
  4. Please see your webserver logs. 500 is an internal server error, so chances are there is something wrong with your webserver, PHP installation, or Revive Adserver files (in which case, re-download the latest version of the code and try again).
  5. Yes - it uses whatever PHP is configured to use: http://documentation.revive-adserver.com/display/DOCS/Email
  6. Okay, so you will only see a banner 50% of the time - load the zone tag a few more times and see if it shows up after a while. If not, check your delivery limitations and capping to make sure that's not preventing it from displaying for you.
  7. No. An upgrade won't re-create any default users. If you have changed users (removed them, added them, etc.) they will be preserved by the upgrade.
  8. You will need to use third party tags that support HTTPS -- assuming the third party actually does so. If they do not, then it won't work.
  9. Try ensuring that all files, and subdirectories, underneath the Revive Adserver var/ directory are correctly set to be able to be written to by the webserver.
  10. There's no need to change the RV.php file if you're running the latest version of Revive Adserver - that bug has been fixed. If the maintenance page says that maintenance is running, all is well - apart from the missing stats. We will have to look elsewhere... Do you see anything appearing in your data_bkt_m table in your database (if you do a "SELECT * FROM data_bkt_m") as delivery of your banners is happening?
  11. One last try: Please take a look at the probability % values for those banners in the relevant zone(s) and tell us what you see.
  12. No idea! What does your log file say?
  13. The Revive Adserver team don't maintain an Azure package. Where are you finding this?
  14. Can you please post a link to a site where it's not working? Or is this for an internal site only, given that it's installed and running on localhost?
  15. My advice would be to add a remnant campaign to the zone. Revive really only works when it knows about all the inventory, and unfortunately, doesn't currently log blank impressions; so you need a remnant campaign there to take up any "spare" inventory and let Revive figure out your real inventory to do a decent job of delivering contract campaigns.
  16. Sounds good! Can you please create an issue in GitHub (ideally, with a pull request too!) Thanks.
  17. Please note that statistics in Revive Adserver are not real-time. You'll need to wait for maintenance to run after the hour is completed before you will see anything appear.
  18. Always interested in pull requests on GitHub! Please by all means, send them through!
  19. Happy to accept pull requests on GitHub!
  20. Yeah, you'll have to trace the code execution with e.g. xdebug, so that you can see where the page submission goes, and add in your support for processing the input to the code. (And then manually manage that change with every upgrade.)
  21. Hi Martin, 1. Yes, it can, and I think XML-RPC is probably the best way to do this. 2. I don't think so, unfortunately. The SPC functionality is only done for JavaScript. 3. Documentation is slowly in progress! (No help now, I know, but if you have specific questions about it, ask away, and we will do what we can.)
  22. Sounds more like you need to ask your hosting provider how to figure out your database username/password, and ensure that the right permissions are available for Revive Adserver to create tables etc.
  23. Should be possible. Just create an HTML banner, and pop the supplied code in - it works for most ad network banners.
  24. Statistics and priorities are only updated hourly, when maintenance runs. Please see documentation!
  25. More likely is that APC didn't correctly cope with the change in files for the upgrade, and clearing the APC cache would have worked? You may find it works again with a cleared out APC cache in place...
