    Header bidding with Revive -- Any news?

    Thanks @andrewatfornax! I didn't realize that you have a Patreon account. I've been using your software since phpAdsNew. I wanted to make a single donation, but it seems Patreon requires a monthly donation... 😔
  2. Hi guys, The RTB networks we use are all moving to header bidding, which, AFAIK, Revive doesn't support. Any news or update on this? I really don't like DFP, but it seems we will need to migrate to it... :( Cheers, Gabe.
  3. @andrewatfornax Yep, it was a zone configuration error, as the banners were linked to the wrong zones. Therefore, no need for this topic, as it was my mistake, and you can delete it. Thanks.
  4. Update: I think I found the culprit: It was a zone linking issue. I had the campaigns linked to certain zones but the banners linked to different zones... It seems this mismatch caused the issue when Revive tried to obey both configurations. I will have a definitive answer after lettting it run for a couple of days, but I am pretty confident that this was the issue indeed.
  5. Hi, Everything was working fine in the previous months, but today when collecting data and generating our monthly reports to our advertisers, a noticed a big mismatch in numbers, which I started to investigate because the numbers where much lower than those from previous numbers. Here is what I found. A campaign configured as "Override", i.e. to be displayed 100% of the time in two zones. The number of views reported by the campaign stats page is completely different from the number of views reported by the zone stats page. See below. Interesting enough, the number of views reported for the campaigns is around half of the number of views reported for the zone. This campaign has a total of six banners, three of which configured to show if the OS is either Windows, OS X or Linux, and the other three is the OS is Android, Blackberry, iOS or Windows Phone. Maybe the problem is with this configuration? I wanted a way to select three banners for desktop and three for mobile, and this was the only workaround I could think of. There were also a bunch of old disabled banners that I deleted today to see if it helps (I will have to check if that worked after a few days). Another weird behavior was for a ROS (Run of Site) campaign, which was underdelivered according to the campaign stats. We configured it to be displayed 500,000 times, and we have plenty of impressions in the selected zones to fulfill this order. But see how Revive was delivering too few impressions at the beginning of the month and then tried to speed up. It ended up being delivered only around 420,000 times. I have no idea as how to start debbuging this. Please advise! Thank you in advance, Gabriel.

    Issue upgrading from 4.0.2 to 4.1.0

    @Matteo Beccati Just to confirm that the new 4.1.1 version solved the issue. Many thanks for fixing this promptly. PS: on the downloads page, the link to the 4.1.1 tar.gz version is pointing to the 4.1.0 version. I am not facing the issue mentioned by @Richard Cook above. For me opening /www/admin/updates-product.php shows: You are currently using Revive Adserver v4.1.1 running on nginx 1.12.1, PHP 7.1.11 and MySQL 5.6.37-82.2-log. Cheers.

    Issue upgrading from 4.0.2 to 4.1.0

    @Matteo Beccati Thanks for all your help. I will wait until an official solution is released, as clearly this is happening with other people as well, and the common thing is that we are all using Revive since it was phpAdsNew...

    Issue upgrading from 4.0.2 to 4.1.0

    Hi @Matteo Beccati, I really appreciate your help. This might be due to either Percona or a legacy upgrade -- we've been using Revive since it was called phpAdsNew. I've never manipulated the database directly. Either way, I need instructions on how to fix this.

    PHP 7.1.10 MySQL: Percona 5.6.37 Extension: MySQLi schema-only database dump Note: it would be nice if we could attach files here... :-/ PS: I noticed that on the above dump the engine is set to MyISAM while we use InnoDB.

  12. Hi there, I am getting this error while trying to upgrade: Errors were found when detecting previous installations of Revive Adserver We have detected integrity issues with your database. This means that the layout of your database differs from what we expect it to be. This could be due to customization of your database. The install.log shows that there are 107 errors. See below. I haven't customized anything, and I don't know how to fix these issues. Please advise.

    How To Serve Responsive Ads?

    Fixed sizes have to do the way the web traditionally works. You have to keep in mind that "responsive" is a somewhat new concept. The web is about 20 years old and we've only seen responsive layouts in the past 2-3 years. That said, it would be great to have a built-in mechanism to detect the maximum width supported and display a banner that fits that space. For example, today we can setup a campaign with, say, two banner sizes, 728x90 and 300x250, at the same time. Revive will display the 728x90 banner when this campaign is assigned to a 728x90 zone, and will display the 300x250 banner when this campaign is assigned to a 300x250 zone. One step further would be the Revive tag to detect the width, and this particular zone would display (for example) the 728x90 banner when the resolution is high enough and the 300x250 banner at lower resolutions. Currently, there are a few known workarounds to that. You can define zones without a width and height (it is possible, just enter * x *), in this case, both banners (728x90 and 300x250) will be displayed at the zone. Then you can set up banner limitation to display the 300x250 for mobile browsers and the 728x90 banner for non-mobile browsers. I hope I have helped.

    Error Message After Server Move

    Edit: I've just noticed that when trying to open the adserver, it redirects me to /www/admin/install.php, so it thinks it is not installed. Probably a flag somewhere that I need to fix... Note: INSTALLED is present at /var
