    I think I have read every thread about the remoting plugin before i decided to post, it is not working for me, I even updated to the latest version of ispconfig, and disabled the xml statements as per the instructions. The only thing I do end up getting is

    "Script end..."

    I installed the package and added remote users, and I still get no response.

    this is the response from me running this script:


    This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below.

    <SOAP-ENV:Envelope SOAP-ENV:encodingStyle="">


    <faultactor>method '' not defined in service ''</faultactor>

    The post I am about to reply to was copied in from another thread:
    I did install the remoting framework, and created 2 users to make sure, :eek: .
    ./configure --with-apxs=${INSTALL_ROOT}/httpd/bin/apxs --enable-track-vars --enable-sockets --enable-mbstring=all --with-config-file-path=${INSTALL_ROOT}/php --enable-ftp --prefix=${INSTALL_ROOT}/php ${WITH_OPENSSL} ${WITH_MYSQL} ${WITH_ZLIB_DIR}  --without-pear || error "Could not configure PHP"
    I see in your file you also removed "with_zlib_dir" and "--without -pear" I think I may try reinstallation again with those options.

    Ok apparently using your compile file my installation failed with:
    ./setup2: line 873: ispconfig_tmp/php/bin/php: No such file or directory
    ERROR: The PHP binary coming with ISPConfig does not work properly on your system! The installation routine stops here!

    I am going to try it removing the "--without -pear" switch.

    despite all of my woes with reinstalling ispconfig, the best I can get which I have gotten before is:
    Error: HTTP Error: no data present after HTTP headers.

    I might try reinstalling again for what seems like the hundredth time! :(

    I do not think that reinstalling is nescessary. Did you solve the compile problems above?

    If not,

    1)make sure that you install from e.g. /tmp or /usr/src, installing from directories like /home/admispconfig or /root might be problematic.
    2) Configure your server as described in one of the perfect setup howtos.
    3) To use the remoting framework, it is not nescessary anymore to install a ioncube encoder as you might have read in older threads.
    4) If you will be sure that you do not get trouble with ssl certificates when you connect to the remoting service, choose "http" when you install ispconfig and not 'https'. This will make it easier to debug things and we can be sure that your problems are not caused by missing SSL support in the PHP that you use on the client side for your soap script.

    I tried your compile script, got a new installation to finish, installed the remoting plugin, added a user, tried it out, again still no cigar. now I have to try to recover my ispconfig as it removed my previous settings.

    3cwired_com New Member

    Well most of the info out says to reinstall and edit the compile script in order to reconfigure ispconfig to work with the remoting plugin. So thats why i have been reinstalling and causing a mess... I must have reinstalled ispconfig atleast 15 times collectively. Initially when I was doing the install I did the install as http, but on my last two attempts I did the install as https, still no cigar. I didn't try the ioncube encoder as per what the threads said. I almost did as a last resort.

    Please check your /tmp directory. There should be backups of /root/ispconfig, /home/admispconfig, and your ISPConfig database so that you can recover your previously working installation. :)

    Thanks for your reply, I will get that underway in a couple of days when i get a chance to look at it again, but i definitely want to get the remoting plugin working first. I dont have many sites on the server yet, so me loosing a few settings isnt on the top of my priority. If i can get help figuring this out then atleast I will know where to go to get it working once I have to redo the new server which is almost complete.

    I feel like I have tried everything and nothing works.... :eek:

    Call me stupid

    Ok, let me guess if I figured this out, I think I may have got the remoting plugin working.

    For some odd reason I tested it out by adding the test files into the ispconfig remote folder. it worked there, I don't think it worked out before in a regular web directory. So i tried it on another domain and it worked, so i came back to the home/main domain, and it worked there as well. So it worked but I am not totally sure why it did, and why not and not with all of my subsequent attempts and tries, maybe I had to use the exact compile script(provided by larwilliams) on my initial installation.

    Nonetheless, i think parts of my screw ups were when it wasn't working, I then started playing with the variables for the remoting server url, not knowing that there is a folder that exits in ispconfig entitled www.domain.tld:81/remote , so when I kept looking I was always tempted to change it(which I did a couple of times) to no avail not fixing any problems.

    I think somewhere one should make it explicit unless you change that path on your system manually, then there is or maybe absolutely no need to change it in the index.php file. Just my .02 cents. I am just overly happy that the system works now.

    When I was also doing my testing, this happened on the https version I had setup at the time... I got the following message. What are the steps needed to get this corrected?

    Error: CURL Extension, or OpenSSL extension w/ PHP version >= 4.3 is required for HTTPS

    I googled some info which I will try later.

    Thanks for all of your patience and support, you all are the best!

    Now I just have to restore my old ispconfig install.

    Ok it works great, I am happy now. I have restored my ispconfig install, and the remoting plugin works great! I am all happy now. I just need to go ahead and try to set it up with the CURL Extension for SSL so that I can login and test it with SSL.

    Could you please post the steps taken for fixing the problem?

    Same problem!

    3cwired_com, I have the same problem with versión ispconfig_remoting_ext_beta4.2_os.pkg could you find some solution?

    till Super Moderator Staff Member ISPConfig Developer

    The output is fine, you can not access the remoting URL with a webbrowser.

    Remember you the solution?

    Remember you the solution? Because I am taking your same problem (Error: CURL Extension, or OpenSSL extension w/ PHP version >= 4.3 is required for HTTPS). I do not support extensions curl in the apache of ISPConfig, it is possible to add without re-compile it?
    Could you explain how you've done work?
