View Full Version : API Help (PHP)

So i'm starting to develop a repo of API scripts to be used for our administration, but I'm having issues with PHP include() and now initiating the COM object of the API.

My working directory is: /opt/merak/html/iwc

Directory Structure:

In the main iwc folder, I have my index.php and some navigation pages. Once one of these navigation pages are selected, I'm using include() and include a specific php page inside scripts/ to execute. When one of the scripts/ pages is include, it also initializes the API:


My current workaround was to bring init_api.php in the same directory as the list_admin.php and update my include() string.

With my include lines updated, the error I'm receiving is related to initializing the COM object.

[23-May-2011 14:02:16] PHP Fatal error: Class 'COM' not found in /data/opt/merak/html/iwc/scripts/init_api.php on line 9I cannot figure out why this is happening.. Here is the code for the init.api.php file:


$acct_api_status = false;
$dom_api_status = false;
$stat_api_status = false;

// Load IW Account APIs
if ($acct_api = new COM("IceWarpServer.AccountObject")) {
$acct_api_status = true;

if ($dom_api = new COM("IceWarpServer.DomainObject")) {
$dom_api_status = true;

if ($stats_api = new COM("IceWarpServer.AccountObject")) {
$stat_api_status = true;

Turns out COM Objects aren't supported on the Linux platform. IceWarp support sent another way to initialize the API on linux.

* Here are some examples for using IceWarp COM API with IceWarp webserver
* PHP engine
* for more info and object function list reffer to merak\api\classes.txt
* for the list of API variables reffer to merak\api\delphi\apiconst.pas
