Revive Adserver is an open source project, dedicated to building and supporting the open source ad server software and the community of users around the world.

Last month, we introduced the new Documentation site for Revive Adserver, with an initial focus on end user documentation.

Today, we’re pleased to announce that work has started on adding sections that are intended for system administrators, and other technical roles. The first article explains the purpose of the hourly maintenance process, including a detailed description on how to setup an automatic maintenance trigger by means of a cron task.

Bonus tip: Custom URL for ‘Support’ link in header
