Using Yate's PHP library on windows
Test an existing PHP script on Windows.
By default Yate communicates through pipes with any script, but in Windows this is not possible, so a listener in external module must be configured to connect to a TCP socket.
Download and install the latest PHP version package from http://www.php.net/downloads.php. I suggest the self installer mirror.
Run the installer and don't forget to add the socket extensions (needed to connect to Yate via TCP).
Setup a listener
Add the following section to extmodule.conf (the word after "listener" will become the module name)
extmodule.conf [listener test] type=tcp addr=0.0.0.0 port=5039 role=global
Modify provided example php files
These are found under <yatehome>\share\scripts. Let's open test.php and modify it as following:
change line 34 from
Yate::Init(true, "localhost", 5039, "");
(init without parameters uses unix sockets to connect - in windows you have to use TCP)
Test the installation
- Restart yate
- Execute php test.php
- connect to yate in telnet and type "external". Output should be:
external 1. test
raise debug level (debug on) and you should be able to see timer messages.
