Try as I might, I just can’t figure this one out.

 

I want to geotarget by city. I have enabled the geotargeting plugin and uploaded the GeoLiteCityv6.dat file into the same directory as the FreeGeoIPCountry.dat file. No matter what path I use, I can’t get the banner limitation to show anything but “continent” and “country” which seem to function correctly. I have modified the xml and php files as suggested but haven’t had any luck with that. I tried showing all the geotargeting options even though there is no database for them but, of course, that is a waste of time.

 

Any suggestions outside of trying to code my own plugin or mess with server configurations would be greatly appreciated.

I think GeoLiteCityv6.dat might a format that's not compatible (yet) with Revive Adserver. I'll get in touch with them and see how we can improve, but for now you should use:

 

http://dev.maxmind.com/geoip/legacy/geolite/


I mean http://geolite.maxmind.com/download/geoip/database/GeoLiteCountry/GeoIP.dat.gz


or http://geolite.maxmind.com/download/geoip/database/GeoLiteCity.dat.gz

Same issue here

 

Interesting thing: when i delete FreeGeoIPCountry.dat from it's directory , upload maxmind GeoIPOrg.dat there and rename it to FreeGeoIPCountry.dat delivery limitations start to display ISP/Organization targeting option (but no country or any other Geo tageting ). Otherwise it doesn't work.

I still couldn't set up delivery limitations. I think it probably has something to do with the path to the *.dat file. Whenever I change the path to the default geo limitation it goes away also.  The path I'm using for the geo/city.dat file is /www/ads/plugins/geoTargeting/oxMaxMindGeoIP/data. I have tried the complete path (from Http: //subdomain.mydomain.com all the way to the *.dat file itself. No luck) I'm going to try Revive on it's own domain and see if that works. In case anyone has the same problem, I'll post the result.

I tried what you did. It seems to work. I did get all the delivery options but only the options for the city database seem to be working (after that is the database I installed so I guess that's logical) but I am not quite sure. I will have to make sure that the ads are only being delivered to the cities I indicate. I really don't like tricking the plug in code that way but so far, that seems to be the only thing that works.

 

Thank you both.

I still don't have the geotargeting working exactly the way I want and after some thought have decided that, for my purpose, a country limitation will probably be good enough. 

 

I have my instance of Revive in a subdomain so the path looks for it there. In any case, here it is. I hope  you have better luck than I did.

Russ, for my ads package I need to have regions.
