  1. Ok I read it again and yea it's just creating an adserver_new directory to keep the old as a backup, and then copying the config file, and to create a new database and import the old data... I also tried this as well, but couldn't get it to work on the new server. Was having login issues. Ended up deciding to just do a fresh install of adserver and reconfigure the ads. Took less time than trying to debug what the issues was, and everything is up to date and running better on the new server.
  2. @andrewatfornax and what do you suggest if your host upgrades a server to php 7, and updates mysql to mysqli? Then how would someone go about fixing any issues. It seems like their should be a way to update the config, or some db table rows. I have followed the docs here on updating https://www.revive-adserver.com/support/upgrading/ which suggest doing a new install, and copying the old database to the new database. I've done this, but get an error when attempting to login. An error occurred while accessing the databaseDue to a problem with the database Revive Adserver couldn't retrieve or store data. And is there not a way to import ads from one install to another? I have the old install, and a new install setup on the server. New install works fine, old install when I update the config to use mysqli it just loads a blank white page. I've read other posts about people just performing an update to adserver which fixes the problem.
  3. Can I not just point the new install to the old db prefix to perform the update? Anyone have simpler documentation on performing an update? I read the update docs but it's extremely confusing.
  4. I just did a new fresh install with a new prefix, and it was able to install a new version just fine. So then I updated the config of the new install, and pointed it to the old db prefix which seems to work, although I get a login error. I then updated the old install to use the same database config, and same thing, unable to connect to the db, so I am assuming the old version is just to outdated considering this is on php 7, old server was probably php 5.6
  5. I changed the config to mysqli to test, and it then just loads a blank white page.
  6. The connection to the db. I updated the config in adserver\var\www.domainname.com.conf.php with the db credentials on wp engine like the following. [database] type=mysql host=localhost socket="/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock" port=13306 username=username password="password" name=db_name persistent= mysql4_compatibility=1 protocol=tcp compress= ssl= capath= ca= But when trying to browse to adserver I'm getting the connection error. A fatal error occurred Revive Adserver can't connect to the database. Because of this it isn't possible to use the administrator interface. The delivery of banners might also be affected. Possible reasons for the problem are: <ul> <li>The database server isn't functioning at the moment</li> <li>The location of the database server has changed</li> <li>The username or password used to contact the database server are not correct</li> <li>PHP has not loaded the MySQL Extension</li> </ul>
  7. Hello all, I changed hosts, and trying to get adserver working on WP Engine. I have updated the config to WP Engine database but still unable to connect. Has anyone got this working on wp engine and know if the config needs something specific... I'm thinking it's the socket path, but not sure if the path is the same on wp engine.
