Access SOAP::Lite Perl Module via PHP


Does anyone know how I might be able to access the SOAP::Lite Perl module via PHP? I greatly appreciate your assistance. Attached is the email I sent to Dreamhost’s customer support.

I am scripting in PHP and was wondering if my account is SOAP-enabled
(e.g. NuSOAP). If not, how might I install it onto my account? I need
to be able to create and access web services on my account. If it is
installed, what do I need to do to access the SOAP protocol?


I took a look around and found that we have the SOAP::Lite perl module enabled on our servers. How you access it via PHP, I’m not sure. Please consult our discussion forum for help from other customers on this case:

If there is anything more we can help you with, please let us know and we will be more than happy to accommodate.

You cannot access Perl modules through PHP. They are only accessable to Perl or any Perl interpreture. There is no Perl interpreture within PHP.

The best you can do is create a perl script that will take command line arguments (or even GET arguments) and call it through PHP either through a system call (command line) or through a GET request.
