Introduction

About soap

The soap extension is a really easy way to write soap clients and servers.

This really needs a better introduction - if you can think of one send an email to soap@lists.php.net

Installation

Short installation note:

  • To compile and install you will need libxml. Only versions 2.4.12 and 2.4.14 have been tested. php-soap "should" work with other versions of libxml2, they just haven't been tested

  • You currently need to check the soap exetension out from Anonymous CVS, using cvs co pear/PECL/soap.

  • You should copy the soap directory into the PHP /ext folder (unless you only want to build it as a self-contained php-module)

  • Run phpize in the soap folder (for the module) or ./buildconf in the php4 directory.

  • Run configure with --with-soap (and your other options)

  • make; make install

  • that's it.
