Updates from every angle – Status update on AdRotate Pro

Over the last few months updating AdRotate Professional has not been as easy as it should be.
A ton of things have been going wrong with the update routine for many users. While for others it worked without a hitch. I’m one of those people where it usually works. So it’s a bit hard to find the problem. But here goes.
I took some more drastic measures to actually improve things and not just patch stuff up.

3 Major issues have come to light and have been fixed or will be fixed over the next few weeks.

AdRotate Banner manager 5.5 – Available now!

This update removes a lot of unused debug code. Which overall should improve the speed of the plugin a bit (just a tiny bit). Also the installation script has been optimised to better check for existing tables. And more visibly the dashboard widgets got fixed and should now show up correctly.

AdRotate Free version 5.1 – Available now

An update for performance and stability. CSS for the header is no longer generated on pageload, but when you save your group. This should speed things up a little.
Graphs for stats now render correctly and a number of other tweaks to the dashboard have been made.

At the request of a number of users the transition for rotating adverts in Dynamic Groups has been changed to a fading effect. Please let me know what you think of that and if it’s too slow or fast.

Howto: Installing MySQL on macOS with root password reset

Following the recent macOS Mojave update I figured I should update MySQL 5.7.16 to 8.0.something, too. This didn’t work out because of the impossible security hash introduced with it. None of my tools are compatible with it apparently.

After some frustrations and loosing all my databases (Migration/Upgrading also didn’t work) I went back to 5.7. The latest version of MySQL 5.7 is 5.7.24. Easy enough, right? Wrong…
It took me a few hours to figure out. But here is my “first launch” setup guide.

After the installation is complete the MySQL manual sort of tells you you’re done and good luck. What it doesn’t mention however is that the temporary password you get is expired before you even use it. You get your password and as far as I can tell their Password Reset instruction is lacking completeness, too.

AdRotate Pro 4.16 – Improved Stats

This update improves a bunch of things in stats. Graphs draw now faster. Some numbers where shown incorrectly. This has been fixed.
More exciting is a new option for support.

Let me see

A common problem when solving problems is that the user (you) can’t explain very well what goes wrong and some are so bad to even get stuck at “it doesn’t work” (pretty much). This is frustrating for you, because in your perception my support sucks. And it’s frustrating for me, because I can’t see what’s wrong.

This has been made a little easier in AdRotate Pro 4.16 where the support form in your dashboard now has a checkbox to send me login details so I can take a look at your dashboard.
