API getorders failure


Recommended Posts


I'm using whmcs api in a custom php script. I can add clients and order products. However i can't get orders.


$url = "https://www.mysite.com/includes/api.php"; # URL to WHMCS API file
$postfields["username"] = "adminusername";
$postfields["password"] = md5("adminpassword");

$postfields["action"] = "getorders";

$ch = curl_init();
curl_setopt($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);

$data = explode(";",$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"];


I'm getting

The following error occured:

no details. Why is that happening?

Your likely filtering out the response with the:

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


Error log $data just after the curl_close($ch)... This will give you an exact response from the server before anything filtered it.


One thing I've found in building a completely unique client area based on WHMCS & Kayako API's is WHMCS's apis are unreliable. To many times the documentation doesn't match the calls required, so its a bit of trial and error.
