nofearinc Posted January 28, 2017 Report Share Posted January 28, 2017 Hello, We've been using Revive Adserver for two years with a client who's been having various issues, but we've managed to sort out most of them one way or the other. Today we have performed a migration that broke Revive, and I've been digging into docs, forums, Stack Overflow for the past 6 hours without having any luck making it work. A bunch of questions coming below, really hope that someone can shed some light as the docs are 100% non-developer friendly. We used to run Revive Adserver 3.1 and now one of the alternatives is trying to upgrade to 4.0.0. Here are some of the hacks I've tried - if even one of those works, we may be able to save the day. 1) Version 3.1 seems to rely on mysql_connect which is not available on the current system. Is there any safe way to replace just a part of 3.1 or a config parameter that works with mysqli? 2) Since we're running the database on Amazon RDS, there's no sock file available on our end which causes a problem with connecting to the remote server. Protocol is set to "tcp" and I've tried to comment out the socket argument in my ini/php file, but no luck. I can easily connect to the RDS with "mysql" from the shell, but socket port or mysql.sock seem to be required based on my error logs. 3) That said, is there any default configuration that I can look at? Some docs refer to a default.conf.php file in /var/ but the latest version includes none there. 4) Trying to install 4.0.0 instead also failed due to the same database permissions. Is there an easy way to override parts of 4.0.0 onto 3.1 and do the magic? There have also been issues with "session not writable", file permissions, incorrect path to the ini file that I managed to solve through the forums here, Stack Overflow or minor code adjustments, but I'm stuck with the rest of the process. Thanks in advance. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
