Whmcs api xml help


Recommended Posts


I love the API system except when it comes to XML, I like NVP, but XML is a pain in the butt!


This is the code I have so far:



echo "ID: " . $_SESSION['clientID'];
$postfields = array();
$postfields["action"] = "getclientsdetails";
$postfields["clientid"] = $_SESSION['clientID'];
$postfields["stats"] = true;
$postfields["responsetype"] = "xml";
echo "<br>";



/* *** WHMCS XML API Sample Code *** */

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

$postfields["username"] = $username;
$postfields["password"] = md5($password);

$query_string = "";
foreach ($postfields AS $k=>$v) $query_string .= "$k=".urlencode($v)."&";

$ch = curl_init();
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $url);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, 30);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $query_string);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYHOST, 0);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, 0);
$xml = curl_exec($ch);
if (curl_error($ch) || !$xml) $xml = '<whmcsapi><result>error</result>'.
'<message>Connection Error</message><curlerror>'.
curl_errno($ch).' - '.curl_error($ch).'</curlerror></whmcsapi>';

$arr = whmcsapi_xml_parser($xml); # Parse XML

print_r($arr); # Output XML Response as Array

Debug Output - Uncomment if needed to troubleshoot problems
echo "<textarea rows=50 cols=100>Request: ".print_r($postfields,true);
echo "\nResponse: ".htmlentities($xml)."\n\nArray: ".print_r($arr,true);
echo "</textarea>";

function whmcsapi_xml_parser($rawxml) {
	$xml_parser = xml_parser_create();
	xml_parse_into_struct($xml_parser, $rawxml, $vals, $index);
	$params = array();
	$level = array();
	$alreadyused = array();
	foreach ($vals as $xml_elem) {
	  if ($xml_elem['type'] == 'open') {
		 if (in_array($xml_elem['tag'],$alreadyused)) {
		 	$xml_elem['tag'] = $xml_elem['tag'].$x;
		 $level[$xml_elem['level']] = $xml_elem['tag'];
		 $alreadyused[] = $xml_elem['tag'];
	  if ($xml_elem['type'] == 'complete') {
	   $start_level = 1;
	   $php_stmt = '$params';
	   while($start_level < $xml_elem['level']) {
		 $php_stmt .= '[$level['.$start_level.']]';
	   $php_stmt .= '[$xml_elem[\'tag\']] = $xml_elem[\'value\'];';



How can I on checkLogin.php show the client's first name. I include XMLAPI.php and then add the postfields in the script, just easier since it is the same, It works right now just gives me a huge array and WHMCS won't help me (BOO!!!) Right now it displays:


ID: 1

Array ( .... and all that other stuff


Can you just give me code to display client first name?


I tried $params[1];




and none of those work. Any help is MUCHHHHHH appreciated! Thanks!
