Yes, you have to compile php on your server with Soap extension. Several people on the form have noted the blank setting issue but he continues to assert that the issue is fixed when it’s not. Until he does, if you have root access to your server I followed these instructions and now the extension works:
The plugin currently uses “SoapClient” so will have to have that enabled on your server.
The other option would be that the plugin is recoded to not rely on SoapClient. The developer may eventually do that if enough people request but doubtful. Or switch to a host that supports it.
What version of PHP are you using? As long as it’s relatively new it should be fine. The link I sent was instructions for 5.3.5 but if your using an older version you’d simply have to google enable soap on php (insert your version here). Or google how to enable/install a module on your particular version of php.
I am having the same issues where when I click Forms->Salesforce the entire screen is blank. I don’t know of any error logs to pull from so I can’t post those but I can assume it is the same thing as you posted heavymark.
I tried looking into phpinfo(); but I wasn’t sure what I was looking for so I tried this but it echoed false.
