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.

We just released Revive Adserver v5.5.1

The new version 5.5.1 of the Revive Adserver software contains fixes for a number of small bugs and inconveniences that have been identified after publication of v5.5.0.

Changes in v5.5.1 of the Revive Adserver software:

  • We fixed an issue preventing username and password from being always requested during upgrades from 5.3.x and older versions. Running an upgrade with an active logged-in session on the browser could result in the admin account requiring a password reset at the next login.

  • We fixed an issue with non-ASCII (e.g. accented) characters not being properly encoded when sending e-mails.

  • We fixed an issue with the CLI installer not setting permissions properly.

  • We removed legacy checks for register_argc_argv being enabled. In fact it is recommended to keep it disabled ony SAPI, other than “cli”, for security reasons.

  • We removed references to safe_mode, which has been removed from PHP a long ago.

  • We fixed a fatal TypeError being triggered during delivery under some circumstances.

  • We fixed a potential out of memory error during maintenance in case of database issues.

  • We added proper escaping when displaying custom application name and UI colour settings.

Full release notes for v5.5.1 can be found on our Github page.
