We use DFP small business with IPB. Not via Nexus ads though.
DFP tends to take 10-15 minutes to start serving ads on freshly generated ad tags. So unfortunately when implementing new tags or changes you do have to give it some time.
globalTemplate is the right spot for it - we created a separate template bit called "includeDFP" which contains all the DFP header code plus some targeting tags. Its not necessary but it does keep things neat, especially as you add more DFP tags or targeting parameters.
Apologies for digging up this somewhat old thread.
Also looking to make a move to AWS. Similarly using RDS for the IPS DB, EC2 instances for the web server. S3 and cloud front.
Have you made the move to AWS? If so what have your experiences been relating to IPS?
Specifically are you using auto-scaling + load balancing on the EC2 instances?
This is a key to providing flexible scalability for us allowing to scale out automatically, however I'm not settled on how to manage content across scaled instances. Any suggestions on syncing / managing the user uploads and IPS cached files between the instances?
I've seen lots of talk on using s3fs for shared file storage to maintain consistency of uploaded files and any dynamically generated files across EC2 instances. This seems like the common approach for similar setups (e.g. Wordpress media files) and may be the way to go.
Any comments or suggestions based on your experience would be much appreciated.
Great Mod! Been using it for some time and have successfully put a stop to many trouble makers using duplicate accounts.
Something that would be great to see in a future version is the addition of a "Matched Duplicate accounts" section in the ACP member tab. Currently it lists the machine ID's for that member - a great extension would be to also list the other accounts using that machine ID.
What I've found is that with a list of nearly 500 matched duplicates browsing through the pages to see if a particular member has any duplicates can be tedious and time consuming.
If there was a quick way to search for or check on a particular member it would be a very helpful addition. One I'd happily pay extra for.
We had a massive hardware failure earlier in the week and were forced to move IPB to a new web and DB server. We've been encountering minor config issues (all my.cnf and apache config was lost).
ReferenceError: ipb is not defined
Additionally, on the pages were this error occurs I've noticed that skin edits (e.g. a change to nav menu items) do not reflect immediately. Only after 10 minutes or so.
Could this be some kind of caching issue which is affecting the loading of js modules?
Here are some pages where the issue occurs (seems to be mainly root pages):
