View Full Version : Web Services via PHP::PEAR::SOAP

05-21-2004, 04:28 PM
I'm trying to invoke Web services from within my php code, and found pear SOAP.

I can't seem to invoke pear to install SOAP.

Has anybody got pear working on Westhost, or alternatively, does anybody have another Web services client solution?

I managed to figure out how to get nusoap working (I tried xmlrpc, but it was way too complicated).

If you want to build/use web services from php, nusoap is the way to go.

The first thing you need to do is to make sure that your PHP binary was compiled with PEAR. You can do this my setting up a simple php page with this function in it
phpinfo(). If pear is enabled and you can't require the files you need from the SOAP/ directory, then you should log in with SSH to your account and type at the command line "pear install soap"

I actually just started using the pear xmlrpc library a week ago and it is excellent. You can find a very good tutorial for it here.
