Geo Targting is not working


Recommended Posts

Recently Geo Targeting for Revive adserver with GeoIP plugin is not working. Previously it was working fine. I have uploaded the new database GeoIP.dat file. But still it is not working. using targeting to a banner completely stop delivering that banner to all the Geo's. There is an update of GeoIP Database which is in mmdb format. How to use mmdb format in revive for GeoIP plugin?

Hi,

Does the GeoIP database in revive update automatically? It seems like ours stopped working at some point as well. It seems to still able to target countries, but anything at the regional level is not working. We're using the "Magic tags" plugin to do stuff like "Welcome visitor from {geo.region}" and now it's blank. 

In the meantime, is there any workaround? We have disabled these banners for now.

In any case, count this as another vote from someone who is using the feature. ;-)

Thanks for all your hard work on the system. It is wonderful

Matt

No - you can configure that yourself with a cronjob, if you want to, but that's all manual scripting.

I think we only ship the free country database, and we do try to update that to the latest version with each release - but for things like regional level targeting, you'll need to go and get (and install, and update) the MaxMind (version 1) regional database yourself.
