    That would be nice indeed! hehe

    I'm working on an Autosignup.pkg for ISPConfig stable...I'll post it as soon as possible.

    These instructions are very clear, so I must be doing something really dumb but I cannot get this to work :( I will walk through what I have done - any help appreciated.

    I have configured PHP with CURL
    I have installed the latest remoting framework using the update manager
    Restarted ISPCONFIG server
    Created a remote user and password under the control panel
    Customised autosignup.php to my server settings and changed all occurrences of soapclient to soap_client in autosignup.php and soap_lib.php

    Now here is where I get confused. Do I upload these two files to the remote directory under /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/web/tools/tools/remote/ ? OR do they need to go into a web directory such as /var/www/

    I tried both places, and neither worked. What is the URL that you need to use to access the login script? Is it OR

    When I go to I get an error page

    <?xml version="1.0" ?>
    - <SOAP-ENV:Envelope SOAP-ENV:encodingStyle="" xmlns:SOAP-ENV="" xmlns:xsd="" xmlns:xsi="" xmlns:SOAP-ENC="" xmlns:si="">
    - <SOAP-ENV:Body>
    - <SOAP-ENV:Fault>
    <faultactor>method '' not defined in service ''</faultactor>
    <faultstring />
    - <detail>
    <soapVal xsi:type="xsd:string" />
    - <!--

    Please help - for some reason I cannot get my head around this. Here is the changed fields from autosignup.php - do they look correct?


    $e = 0;

    $server = ""; //for subdomains
    $serverpath = "http://example:81/remote/index.php"; //soap server

    // $server = ""; //for subdomains
    // $serverpath=""; //soap server

    $parameters = array('user' => '****', 'pass' => '****');

    Thanks in advance.

    matt, the autosignup.php goes into your web folder, your settings look correct, unless your actually leaving in the place :). Did you compile your ispconfig with https? if so you would change the http to https. if anything pm me on [email protected] im usually on most of the day

    grandpagenocide thank you so much for your assistance. It still does not work though - more than likely something I have done! :confused:

    Okay I have autosignup.php and soap.lib.php in my web directory. When I browse to I see the php file, as a text file in the browser! I know it is serving webpages okay, because the login to ISPCONFIG works fine and the index.html appeared okay when I created the site.?? Gawd what have I done? :(

    Https does not work - says file not found, although my control panel is accessed through https....can you follow all this? :p

    The ISPconfig is running on an other Apache than the main websites.
    So.. Make sure that you enable PHP for the 'main' websites also.
    You can do this within ISPconfig > ISP Manager > domain-in-question > under the tab 'basis' you will see "PHP Scripts:" and enable it.

    Gawd I feel like a tad stoopid! Thanks Edge, you nailed it. I set this up on a dev box and simply didn't have php enabled for the website :eek: - login script appearing now.

    Thanks too, to Grandpa for your help ;)

    This will work for you


    You'll have to make a few modifications to the 5s7 script.

    I posted detailed instructions my cousin khayjake forwarded to me on these forums awhile back when I was having troubles.

    Goes over every detail of how to get the 5s7 autosignup scripts working perfectly. Here I'll find the link for you.

    I've also got an updated version of the autosignup form that includes the extra form checkmarks & fields to add newer variables for additions to remoting framework created users/webs/domains etc...for ISPConfig stables newer releases.

    The Link above is very detailed and has everything you'll need to get it working.

    It tells you what variables in what files you have to edit or add as well as what permissions you have to change etc.'s very straight forward.

    This should take care of you....but dont hesitate to send me a PM if you need help buddy.

    Hope this helps!

    Hello guy's

    I have remote frame work up and running. I have modified the test and auto sign up files. I have things working so so. If an error occurs during the execution of a query submitted by the soap subsystem no error message is returned back to the client. This is common when lets say the script creates the client but no website. The part of the code that returns the kunde_id and the two other values i placed more detailed messages there to try to get a better grip on errors, but still won't get any of the server side errors.

    Another thing that i was curious about was has anyone got paypal integration
    put in the code yet ?

    I have not been able to find any samples.

    I have made a Joomla Component for automated user registration using the remote framework.

    It will check if the user is registered in joomla, and then the component allows registration, using the username and email used for the Joomla registration. It will automaticly create a Sub-Domain like USER.domain.tld.

    If anybody needs this, i can upload the component for you.

    Also i have a question to the remote framework.
    Is it possible to add apache directives with the remote framework? When i try to add this with the remote framework in the domain registration process, it is just ignored. Everything else, like domain name and diskspace is inserted correctly.

    It would be nice if somebody can help me with this.



    PS: Is there a detailed list what can be added/changed with the remote framework?

    It's just for Joomla, because the script is getting the username and email adress from the cms.

    I will upload the script when i am at home.

    Here is the Joomla Component. I've tested it in my Joomla 1.5:

    At the moment i am working on adding support for "web_httpd_include". For that to work i have to modify the Remoting Framework. When i am finished with it and it is working, i will release it here.

    [EDIT 2]
    I've added support to handel the web_httpd_include to the Remoting Framework. With this feature enabled it is possible to add Force Ads to newly registered users. For those who are paying, you can remove the httpd_include inside the Web (Apache directive) and the Ads are gone! Download the modified Framework here:

    That is no joomla component. It's the regular signup files.

    Joomla Components require an xml file & stuff.

    Perhaps you can update the link if you really have written an ISPConfig-Remoting Package like Drupal developers have done.

    Thanks, & let me know!
