    Hi guys,
    I have a strange issue in my server installation. ISPConfig doesn't respond at the
    I see a blank page only.

    $client = new SoapClient($endpointlocation);
    $this->setSession ( $client->login ( $username, $password ) );

    I get this exception:

    SOAP-ERROR: Parsing WSDL: Couldn't load from '' : Start tag expected, '<' not found

    How to solve this error?

    Which php version do you use now? Check with phpinfo() in the ispconfig web directory if the soap functions exist in php.

    # php -v

    what's the problem? I don't understand the behavior of the SoapClient and of the SoapServer.
    If I read your code:
    $server = new SoapServer(null, array('uri' => $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']));
    and I check the $server var I get:
    SoapServer Object ( [service] => Resource id #13 )

    Both seems to me work as well but the WSDL file doesn't appear.
    Any idea?

    If I call /remote/index.php?wsdl I can see the wsdl envelope with the exception:
    WSDL generation is not supported yet
    is it normal?

    There is no wsdl. You have to use the connect string like it is used in the examples for the remote api.

    Yes Till of course as you can see I am using the code posted in the remote api.

    Ok, so the code in your first post is not the one that you used for your test? The api does not use wsdl and the connect type in the remote api example does not need a wsdl file as php can not create one, so if you would want a wsdl file e.g. when you use a different programming language then php that does not support connections without wsdl, then you would have to create such a file manually. But I never needed that yet for a ispconfig integration, it walways worked without a wsdl api description. You need wsdl only if you want to do auto discovery of api functions.

    Hi again, I have solved the issue!

    I had wrote this code:
    $opts = array('http'=>array('user_agent' => 'PHPSoapClient'));
    $context = stream_context_create($opts);
    $client = new SoapClient($endpointlocation, array('stream_context' => $context, 'cache_wsdl' => WSDL_CACHE_NONE));

    then I have updated the login connection in this way:
    $client = new SoapClient(null, array('location' => $endpointlocation, 'uri' => $endpointuri));
