I've used OpenX a few years ago and it worked fine. Now I see that it wasn't maintained for a while hence it became buggy on newer versions of PHP.

Do you know any ad server that is a good alternative to OpenX?

+1 I am also interested in knowing this... – alex Mar 7 '11 at 23:50
Are you actually requiring PHP? (Note inapplicable response below, which suggests a hosted solution.) Also, a little information about your needs would help. – Su' Apr 14 '11 at 20:01
Have you looked into Revive Adserver? OpenX has become ReviveAdserver which was last updated March 2016. – Analog Jun 22 at 23:27

I've used mySimpleAds for a client in the past, and they were happy with it. As the name suggests, though, it may be missing features versus what you were using in OpenX(which was complicated, so...). You'll have to do that for yourself.

Well definitely stay the hell away from openx unless you're shelling out big $$ as part of their microsoft-run enterprise level of service (i.e. its what groupon is on). They gave up years ago on the open source openx, and it shows.

Right now as far as free ad servers that actually are decent is concerned, check out google's doubleclick for publishers (it's the renamed google ad manager). I've been using it on 3 sites for the past 6 months or so and have no complaints so far. https://www.google.com/intl/en_US/dfp/info/welcome.html

Request is for a PHP solution. – Su' Apr 14 '11 at 20:05

I am selling a custom built ad server script. It is much better than any thing else on the market and has been developed by my talented developers for about 3 years. It will not be cheap but you can contact me here for more info: ptoone.com

I'm normally wary of commercial self promotion, but in this case you do appear to have something that the person that asked the question might be interested in. Welcome to Pro Webmasters. Please consider asking your own questions and answering other questions here as well. – Stephen Ostermiller Mar 19 '13 at 18:45

http://orbitopenadserver.com/ might be a solution. But I never installed that script.
