Xmlrpc in php5

software development

#1

As far as I can tell php5 on Dreamhost hasn’t been built --with_xmlrpc, the xml rpc extensions to php.

Am I right in thinking this? Is there a workaround? Would Dreamhost consider building it with this option?

Thanks

On the PHP website, the extension is considered experimental; however, the comments on that page indicate some interesting alternatives.

Remember that you can always install your own version of PHP, and include whatever you wish.

I guess I could use the sourceforge library, it’s just a matter of not having to rebuild my code. As for installing my own version - I guess, but that seems if anything harder.

I only use xmlrpc for pinging weblogs etc when my blog updates, so I’ll do it manually while I think about it.

Thanks for the tips, though.

I’ve never done anything like that before. I use Matt Mullenweg’s Ping-O-Matic at the moment, but I’d like to learn how to do it programmatically. Do you know of any tutorials on the subject?
