Non-Backwards Compatible Changes


Known Issues

This list covers some of the known problems with Revive Adserver. Please read this before reporting any new bugs.

  • The upgrade process may time out with very large databases.
  • Revive Adserver requires PHP 5. If you are using PHP 4, you will need to update your web server to use PHP 5 before upgrading.
  • If you want to run Revive Adserver with MySQL, please note that MySQL 4.1 or higher is required. If you are using an older version of MySQL, you will need to update your database software before upgrading.
  • If you want to run Revive Adserver with PostgreSQL, please note that PostgreSQL 8.1 or higher is required. If you are using an older version of PostgreSQL, you will need to update your database software before upgrading.
  • Some of the PEAR libraries used are not compatible with database prefix names with double “_” characters (e.g. “rv__”). You should NOT install Revive Adserver with a prefix of this format.
  • Some users have reported issues of being logged out when viewing statistics. This can be worked around by ensuring that the timezone is correctly set in PHP.
  • See Github for the latest bug reports.
