UpCloud PHP API client library

UpCloud php api test Latest Stable Version License Total Downloads

This PHP API client library provides integration with the UpCloud API allowing operations used to manage resources on UpCloud. The client is a web service interface that uses HTTPS to connect to the API. The API follows the principles of a RESTful web service wherever possible.

The base URL for all API operations is https://api.upcloud.com/ and require basic authentication using UpCloud username and password. We recommend creating a subaccount dedicated for the API communication for security purposes. This allows you to restrict API access by servers, storages, and tags ensuring you will never accidentally affect critical systems.

NOTE: Please test all of your use cases thoroughly before actual production use. Using a separate UpCloud account for testing / developing the client is recommended.

Table of content


Using this library requires the PHP version 8.0 and later.



To install the bindings via Composer, add the following to composer.json:

  "require": {
    "upcloudltd/upcloud-php-api": "v2.0.0"

Then run composer install

The upcloudltd/upcloud-php-api can be found from packagist.org, https://packagist.org/packages/upcloudltd/upcloud-php-api

Manual installation

Download the files and include autoload.php:



To run the unit tests:

composer install



Please follow the installation procedure and then run the following (NOTE: In real production applications you should use for example ENV variables instead of inserting credentials directly to code and to version control):

require_once(__DIR__ . '/vendor/autoload.php');

$api_instance = new Upcloud\ApiClient\Upcloud\AccountApi();
$config = $api_instance->getConfig();
$config->setUsername('YOUR UPCLOUD USERNAME');
$config->setPassword('YOUR UPCLOUD PASSWORD');

try {
    $result = $api_instance->getAccount();
} catch (Exception $e) {
    echo 'Exception when calling AccountApi->getAccount: ', $e->getMessage(), PHP_EOL;


To create a server:

require_once(__DIR__ . '/vendor/autoload.php');

$api_instance = new Upcloud\ApiClient\Upcloud\AccountApi();
$config = $api_instance->getConfig();
$config->setUsername('YOUR UPCLOUD USERNAME');
$config->setPassword('YOUR UPCLOUD PASSWORD');

try {
        $result = $api_instance->getAccount();
} catch (Exception $e) {
        echo 'Exception when calling AccountApi->getAccount: ', $e->getMessage(), PHP_EOL;

$server = new Upcloud\ApiClient\Model\Server();

$storage = new Upcloud\ApiClient\Model\StorageDevice();

$storage_devices = new Upcloud\ApiClient\Model\ServerStorageDevices();


$server_request = new Upcloud\ApiClient\Model\CreateServerRequest();
$api_instance = new Upcloud\ApiClient\Upcloud\ServerApi();
try {
        $result = $api_instance->createServer($server_request);
} catch (Exception $e) {
        echo 'Exception when calling ServerApi->createServer: ', $e->getMessage(), PHP_EOL;
