API Issues


Recommended Posts

I am trying to retrieve invoice details through the API. However I cant see to get the initial api call working.


I created a InvoicePaid hook that handles my affiliate tracking info. This only returns the invoice id. i want to use that id to get more customer details.


$url = "http://www.myurl.com/account/includes/api.php"; # URL to WHMCS API file
$username = "myusername"; # Admin username goes here
$password = "mypassword"; # Admin password goes here

$postfields["username"] = $username;
$postfields["password"] = md5($password);
$postfields["action"] = "getinvoice"; #action performed by the API:Functions
$postfields["invoiceid"] = $vars['invoiceid'];

$ch = curl_init();
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $url);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, 100);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $postfields);
$data = curl_exec($ch);

echo $data;

$data = explode(";",$data);
foreach ($data AS $temp) {
  $temp = explode("=",$temp);
  $results[$temp[0]] = $temp[1];

if ($results["result"]=="success") {
  # Result was OK!
} else {
  # An error occured
  echo "The following error occured: ".$results["message"];


the only thing I get isThe following error occured: Invalid IP
