Need help with Xmlrpc over https - geekita - 07-12-2015

Hello everybody, I need some help with Xmlrpc over https.

When I try to send a request to the server, I get this error

"Did not receive a '200 OK' response from remote server. (HTTP/1.1 302 Found)"


I think that this happens because of my htaccess, which is

RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://mydomain.com/$1 [R,L]

I use this htaccess configuration because I want to force every request over https instead of http. Can this be the root cause of my problem? There's a way to avoid https rewrite if the request is already sent over https?

Turn on debugging, client side, to see what the server is actually returning.

$this->xmlrpc->set_debug(TRUE);

$this->xmlrpc->server('https://mydomain.com/' . 'app', 80);

Anyway it works nicely if I remove the htaccess config.

This is the response if I try to use 443 port

$this->xmlrpc->server('https://mydomain.com/' . 'app', 443);

It sounds like your xmlrpc request is not being wrapped properly.


RE: Need help with Xmlrpc over https - geekita - 09-17-2015

Does anybody have a working example for xml-rpc client-server communication over https?


RE: Need help with Xmlrpc over https - geekita - 11-28-2015

Up :/

It's fairly easy to extend CI's XMLRPC so you can use it with SSL. I was working on this years ago:

https://github.com/skunkbad/MY_Xmlrpc

While it is for CI 2.X, you should be able to do something similar for your app.


RE: Need help with Xmlrpc over https - geekita - 11-28-2015

Thanks skunkbad! So you're telling me that XML-RPC library shipped with CI doesn't support SSL natively?

It didn't back then, and since I haven't used it in years I can't tell you for sure, but I don't believe the SSL support is there now.

One thing you might consider is just making your own library. I really didn't like using CI's, and that's why I didn't continue using it.
