    I am looking for a good banner rotator. I have already used WebAdverts, and gone through the nightmare of being booted from my host... So is there any rotators that do not use up too many sys resources, and that are decent?

    I have downloaded AdCycle, but would like some comments before I install it.

    If you have access to php on your web host then try out PhpAds which can be found at www.phpwizard.net/phpAds/

    This is a great script and is getting updated regularly.

    Cant comment on AdCycle sorry - Ive never used it personally.

    I did have it set-up on my server and i really liked it. Don't know what the sys resource usage is like though.

    I am having problems with installing Adcycle, even thought it has a rather simple installation process. Adcycle is my favorite of all.

    I played a little with PHPAds, and it is very good.

    Also there is one by www.purelybymagic.com that I liked.

    By the way, I am also trying to choose an ad rotation script...I would certainly go with Adcycle if I could just get the darn thing to work in MySQL.

    What error are you getting with AdCycle? Something about line endings if so then let me know, or if you ICQ me I will go through it with you.

    <installing ICQ>

    I was having a permissions error, for the record. I am not sure if it is just be being stupid or the host, or what it is.

    Thanks!

    I really think Adcycle is the best ad rotator on the market It's also faster than some other because it uses MySQL

    Yeah, I really wish I could use adcycle, but I still can't get it to work. However, I am pretty sure this has to do with my host rather than me.
