PHP object-oriented library for Plesk XML-RPC API.

Install Via Composer

Composer is a preferable way to install the library:

composer require plesk/api-php-lib

Usage Examples

Here is an example on how to use the library and create a customer with desired properties:

$client = new \PleskX\Api\Client($host);
$client->setCredentials($login, $password);

    'cname' => 'Plesk',
    'pname' => 'John Smith',
    'login' => 'john',
    'passwd' => 'secret',
    'email' => '',

It is possible to use a secret key instead of password for authentication.

$client = new \PleskX\Api\Client($host);

In case of Plesk extension creation one can use an internal mechanism to access XML-RPC API. It does not require to pass authentication because the extension works in the context of Plesk.

$client = new \PleskX\Api\InternalClient();
$protocols = $client->server()->getProtos();

For additional examples see tests/ directory.

How to Run Unit Tests

One the possible ways to become familiar with the library is to check the unit tests.

To run the unit tests use the following command:

REMOTE_HOST=your-plesk-host.dom REMOTE_PASSWORD=password composer test

To use custom port one can provide a URL (e.g. for Docker container):

REMOTE_URL=https://your-plesk-host.dom:port REMOTE_PASSWORD=password composer test

One more way to run tests is to use Docker:

docker-compose run tests

Continuous Testing

During active development it could be more convenient to run tests in continuous manner. Here is the way how to achieve it:

REMOTE_URL=https://your-plesk-host.dom:port REMOTE_PASSWORD=password composer test:watch
