You need to get and install XMLRPC-Erlang.<br /> You can download XMLRPC-Erlang binary files from<br /> <a href="http://www.ejabberd.im/ejabberd_xmlrpc" title="http://www.ejabberd.im/ejabberd_xmlrpc">http://www.ejabberd.im/ejabberd_xmlrpc</a><br /> or compile it yourself:<br /> wget <a href="http://www.ejabberd.im/files/contributions/xmlrpc-1.13-ipr2.tgz" title="http://www.ejabberd.im/files/contributions/xmlrpc-1.13-ipr2.tgz">http://www.ejabberd.im/files/contributions/xmlrpc-1.13-ipr2.tgz</a><br /> tar -xzvf xmlrpc-1.13-ipr2.tgz<br /> cd xmlrpc-1.13/src<br /> make<br /> cd ../../<br /> Then you can copy the *.beam files to ejabberd ebin directory,<br /> or add an option like this to the ejabberd start script:<br /> $ erl -pa '/home/jabber/xmlrpc-1.13/ebin' ...</p> <p>Make command don't work. Is There a way to compile this module in Windows?</p> Fri, 23 May 2014 14:16:06 +0000 icaro56 comment 64032 at https://www.ejabberd.im ProtocolError in python https://www.ejabberd.im/mod_xmlrpc#comment-54589 <div class="codeblock"><code>import xmlrpclib <p>print &quot;hello&quot;</p> <p># Create an object to represent our server.<br />server_url = &#039;;;<br />server = xmlrpclib.Server(server_url);</p> <p># Call the server and get our result.<br />try:<br />&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; result = server.echothis(&quot;800&quot;)<br />&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; print result<br />except xmlrpclib.ProtocolError, err:<br />&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; print &quot;A protocol error occurred&quot;<br />&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; print &quot;URL: %s&quot; % err.url<br />&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; print &quot;HTTP/HTTPS headers: %s&quot; % err.headers<br />&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; print &quot;Error code: %d&quot; % err.errcode<br />&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; print &quot;Error message: %s&quot; % err.errmsg</p></code></div> <p>I obtain:</p> <pre> hello A protocol error occurred URL: HTTP/HTTPS headers: None Error code: -1 Error message: </pre><p>I have the version 2.0.5, compiled myself the mod_xmlrpc (thus with erlang version 5.6.5) and got compiled .beams from the upload in this page for erlang-xmlrpc (thank you badlop) thus with erlang version r12b5-5.6.5 too.<br /> I'm on windows.<br /> Does anyone have an idea for the reason of that or how can I debug this?</p> Wed, 26 Aug 2009 22:52:15 +0000 NecmiKara comment 54589 at https://www.ejabberd.im Java example and PHP committed https://www.ejabberd.im/mod_xmlrpc#comment-53523 <p>Thanks, I've added your Java example, and fixed the PHP example.</p> Sun, 31 Aug 2008 18:18:13 +0000 mfoss comment 53523 at https://www.ejabberd.im Wrong PHP example https://www.ejabberd.im/mod_xmlrpc#comment-53499 <p>README.txt for mod_xmlrpc contains not working PHP example, due to improper request headers.
