This article describes what to do in case you need to store the WSDL files locally.

When you try to load a WSDL URL via HTTPS, an error like this may be returned:

PHP Fatal error: SOAP-ERROR: Parsing WSDL: Couldn't load from '' : failed to load external entity ""

Step-by-step guide

Depending on the required WSDL, you must download the schema locally taking the steps below:

STEP 1: Log in to your server as root using either SSH from Linux or Putty from Windows.

STEP 2: Go to the SOAP schema folder.

cd <VOIPNOW_ROOT_D>/admin/htdocs/soap2/schema

where <VOIPNOW_ROOT_D> is defined in /etc/voipnow/paths.conf.

STEP 3: Tar the desired schema version.

tar -cvf soap_350.tar.gz 3.5.0/

STEP 4: Copy and untar that archive on your server, and then load the WSDL from there. To untar the archive type:

tar -xzvf soap_350.tar.gz

STEP 5: In your .php file, the WSDL is requested from the local files:

new SoapClient('local_path', $options);

#trackbackRdf ($trackbackUtils.getContentIdentifier($page) $page.title $trackbackUtils.getPingUrl($page))
