This module integrates the popular open source ad server OpenX (formerly Openads) with Drupal. OpenX 2.6 and OpenX 2.4 are currently supported.
OpenX 2.6 comes with an API that allows for external apps to administer an OpenX installation. The OpenX Manager project can be used along with this module to administer an OpenX installation from within Drupal.
Supported OpenX invocation methods include:
- Define which ads show to which user roles
- Extended information in ad_channel, including full url and user role
- Ads are available as blocks or can be inserted manually into templates.
This module only integrates with a working instance of OpenX. Installing and configuring
OpenX as an ad server is beyond the scope of this module. If you are looking for help
with OpenX, please consult these resources:

I've tested with a fresh install of OpenX 2.6 and so far ads are showing up
have not been able to test Local mode yet. This is with an unmodified
Openads drupal module.
Note that in order to use the Local invocation method you must have an OpenX
adserver installation on the same machine as your Drupal site and it must have
the same top level domain. This is an OpenX requirement.
In order to use the XML-RPC method you must have the PEAR XML-RPC library installed
and you must have the OpenX openads-xmlrpc.inc.php file from the OpenX installation
files in your PHP path.
serve ads if Drupal is set to use caching and the current user is the anonymous
user. Please help to test this out if you are using any of the invocation methods other
