    Default How to send and recieve xml files from a script

    I need to send an xml file to a remote third party script and recieve an xml response. I am vaguely familiar with xmlhttprequest, but not very. Another pretty big problem is that my server does not support asp (i work primarily in php), and the script I need to access is an asp script. Is this even possible? Thanks in advance.

    That may in fact be a little too interdisciplinary for folks here. However, if you could provide more specifics, a few of us working together might be able to figure it out along with your help.

    You may have more luck at:

    If you go that route though I think you still need to be more specific.

    Thanks for the response.

    I've recently discovered soap, which is probably a better solution than xmlhttprequest. I looked up in the w3 school how to format the xml. What I'm still having a little trouble with, though, is the php code required to send the xml. I have looked that up as well at php.net, but I am a little bit confused by what I found there. (I guess that's what I get for coding at 4am?)

    You're welcome but, it's hard to 'hit a moving target'. If your issue is now only/mostly with the PHP end of things, I suggest - if you haven't already - making a new thread in the PHP forum here. The PHP folks here who know their stuff are pretty good. I, have just a passing knowledge of PHP though.
