Best open source project management tool?


I'm looking for a open source project management tool (developed in php), which one is the best option or the easiest to use?

Thanks in advanced.

I've tried them all. The best PM system I've found in 10 years is TeamworkPM. It's not open source, though. It's a premium hosted solution, but they offer a pretty decent free plan with unlimited users. You can set up an unlimited number of projects and tasks, just as long as you only have 2 active projects at any time - that's the limitation. Completed or dormant projects can be archived, but they can be re-opened at any time, as long as you have 1 of your 2 slots available.

I know you're looking for open source, but it's definitely worth a look if you're not totally set on open source.

As an open source solution, dotProject seems to be one of the most popular ones out there. I personally don't think it comes close to TeamworkPM, though.

Having used dotProject, I'm leaving towards what Julianmatz has said. It's been buggy and a lot of stuffing around getting it to work. Don't under estimate the price of support

Just wanted to add that TeamworkPM also has excellent time tracking functionality, and can even handle hourly- or fixed-based billing. It's also got some good exporting features, including support for HTML, Excel, PDF, Freshbooks, Quickbooks, Xero, and others.

Here's a list of features:

And the pricing is pretty reasonable:

I'm on the $24 pm plan.

The software is actively supported, and new features are introduced regularly. One of the latest being sub-tasks.

Here's a list of features on the way:
