UltimaPHP - Ultima Online OpenSource Server

UltimaPHP is a modern Ultima Online server written in PHP 7.0.

This server was created for thoes who ever wanted to create differend addaptations on the core of your shard.

I decided to build this project for study propose i've re-scripted the entire socket server to understand how it works and after that i decided to create a lightweight standalone version of the server that runs in any OS easly.

Note: The server only works with the last updated Ultima Online client ( and we will not spent time with older clients for now.

How to install?

First of all you will need to install PHP 7.0 or greater and MongoDb 3.4+, I reccomend you to use PHP 7.1 it's ultra fast and lightweight, for that:

After install PHP and MongoDB on the machine, edit the file ultimaphp.ini as you wish, create a mongodb database named "ultimaphp" (or anyone, just need to change at the ultimaphp.ini) and create/import all collections from tools/Mongo Database/*.json (file name is the collection name) and follow the next steps to start the server:

Note 1: You can use some program to visualize and work with mongodb like: RoboMongo or MongoChef

Note 2: The default owner account/password in the database is: test/test

Note 3: The default player account/password in the database is: test2/test

Note 4: Passwords is allways stored in MD5 encryption both in database and in server variables

Note 5: UltimaPHP only works (till now) with no-encrypted clients.


  • Open the terminal and navigate to the root folder of UltimaPHP project
  • Type: php7.0 startserver.php


  • We need someone with mac to help us :)


  • Open the run dialog (SUPER+R) and type cmd then run
  • Navigate to PHP installation folder cd c:\php\installation\folder\
  • And start the server php.exe c:\ultimaphp\instalation\folder\startserver.php

Base PHP compilation

For those, like me, who preffer to use an most performatic standalone PHP, with only what it really needs

./configure --prefix=/usr --with-config-file-path=/etc --enable-sockets --enable-bcmath --enable-mbstring --enable-zip --enable-pcntl --enable-ftp --enable-exif --enable-sysvmsg --enable-sysvsem --enable-sysvshm --enable-wddx --with-mcrypt --with-iconv --with-zlib-dir=/usr --with-xpm-dir=/usr --with-openssl --with-gettext=/usr --with-zlib=/usr --with-bz2=/usr
make install
