Cobbler XMLRPC calls with PHP

I'm trying to do some very simple xmlrpc calls with Cobbler, a Redhat management system.

The problem is, the documentation is in pythong and I'm pretty new to PHP. The info for xmlrpc on python is here:


I've posted my PHP code in the code box, am I even remotely close to the correct syntax here?
include 'xmlrpc.inc';

// Make an object to represent our server.
$server = new xmlrpc_client('https://url/cobbler/cobbler_api');

$token = $server->login("username","password");

echo $server->getprofiles("name");


Open in new window

Your syntax looks OK on a casual inpection, but that URL needs to change https://url/cobbler/cobbler_api is not a valid web url. You can use localhost


I can't help yu much with RPC, but that's not what you were asking about...    :-)

Yeah I removed the actual URL for privacy reasons.
