A php library for building xml-rpc clients and servers.


The recommended way to install this library is using Composer.

Detailed installation instructions are in the file, along with system requirements listing.


See the documentation page at for a list of the library main features and all project related information.

The user manual can be found in the doc/manual directory, in AsciiDoc format: phpxmlrpc_manual.adoc

Older release tarballs also contain HTML and PDF versions of the manual, as well as an automatically generated API documentation.

NB: the user manual has not been updated yet with all the changes made in version 4. Please consider it unreliable!

You are encouraged to look instead the code examples found in the demo/ directory


If you are upgrading from version 3 or earlier you have two options:

  1. adapt your code to the new API (all changes needed are described in doc/

  2. use instead the compatibility layer which is provided. Instructions and pitfalls described in doc/

In any case, read carefully the docs in doc/ and report back any undocumented issue using GitHub.

Running tests

The recommended way to run the library test suite is via the provided Docker containers. A handy shell script is available that simplifies usage of Docker.

The full sequence of operations is:

./tests/ci/ build
./tests/ci/ start
./tests/ci/ runtests
./tests/ci/ stop

# and, once you have finished all testing related work:
./tests/ci/ cleanup

By default, tests are run using php 7.4 in a Container based on Ubuntu 20 Focal. You can change the version of PHP and Ubuntu in use by setting the environment variables PHP_VERSION and UBUNTU_VERSION before building the Container.

To generate the code-coverage report, run ./tests/ci/ runcoverage
