PHP Example


<?php
require ABSPATH . WPINC . "/class-IXR.php";

$rpc = new IXR_Client( "http://example.com/xmlrpc.php" );
$status = $rpc->query(
    "system.listMethods"    // method name
);

if( !$status ) {
    print "Error ( " . $rpc->getErrorCode( ) . " ) : ";
    print $rpc->getErrorMessage( ) . "\n";
    exit;
}

$data = $rpc->getResponse( );
print_r( $data );

?>

In WordPress specifically (as opposed to vanilla PHP), there is a class available that uses WordPress' built-in HTTP request wrapper instead of relying on direct cURL calls. To use this wrapper, your code instead becomes:


<?php
require ABSPATH . WPINC . "/class-IXR.php";
require ABSPATH . WPINC . "/class-wp-http-ixr-client.php";

$rpc = new WP_HTTP_IXR_Client( "http://example.com/xmlrpc.php" );
$status = $rpc->query(
    "system.listMethods"    // method name
);

if( !$status ) {
    print "Error ( " . $rpc->getErrorCode( ) . " ) : ";
    print $rpc->getErrorMessage( ) . "\n";
    exit;
}

$data = $rpc->getResponse( );
print_r( $data );

?>
