Download the PHP package plesk/api-php-lib without Composer

On this page you can find all versions of the php package plesk/api-php-lib. It is possible to download/install these versions without Composer. Possible dependencies are resolved automatically.


After the download, you have to make one include require_once('vendor/autoload.php');. After that you have to import the classes with use statements.

If you use only one package a project is not needed. But if you use more then one package, without a project it is not possible to import the classes with use statements.

In general, it is recommended to use always a project to download your libraries. In an application normally there is more than one library needed.
Some PHP packages are not free to download and because of that hosted in private repositories. In this case some credentials are needed to access such packages. Please use the auth.json textarea to insert credentials, if a package is coming from a private repository. You can look here for more information.

  • Some hosting areas are not accessible by a terminal or SSH. Then it is not possible to use Composer.
  • To use Composer is sometimes complicated. Especially for beginners.
  • Composer needs much resources. Sometimes they are not available on a simple webspace.
  • If you are using private repositories you don't need to share your credentials. You can set up everything on our site and then you provide a simple download link to your team member.
  • Simplify your Composer build process. Use our own command line tool to download the vendor folder as binary. This makes your build process faster and you don't need to expose your credentials for private repositories.

Test Status Scrutinizer Code Quality codecov

PHP object-oriented library for Plesk XML-RPC API.

Composer is a preferable way to install the library:

composer require plesk/api-php-lib

Here is an example on how to use the library and create a customer with desired properties:

It is possible to use a secret key instead of password for authentication.

In case of Plesk extension creation one can use an internal mechanism to access XML-RPC API. It does not require to pass authentication because the extension works in the context of Plesk.

For additional examples see tests/ directory.

How to Run Unit Tests

One the possible ways to become familiar with the library is to check the unit tests.

To run the unit tests use the following command:

REMOTE_HOST=your-plesk-host.dom REMOTE_PASSWORD=password composer test

To use custom port one can provide a URL (e.g. for Docker container):

REMOTE_URL=https://your-plesk-host.dom:port REMOTE_PASSWORD=password composer test

One more way to run tests is to use Docker:

docker-compose run tests

Continuous Testing

During active development it could be more convenient to run tests in continuous manner. Here is the way how to achieve it:

REMOTE_URL=https://your-plesk-host.dom:port REMOTE_PASSWORD=password composer test:watch
