The best way to use the Red Oxygen API from PHP is to use the HTTP interface.


function SendMessage($AccountID, $Email, $Password, $Recipient, $Message)
	$Parameters['AccountID'] = $AccountID;
	$Parameters['Email'] = $Email;
	$Parameters['Password'] = $Password;
	$Parameters['Recipient'] = $Recipient;
	$Parameters['Message'] = $Message;
	Request($Parameters, '');
function Request($Parameters, $URL)
	$URL = preg_replace('@^http://@i', '', $URL);
	$Host = substr($URL, 0, strpos($URL, '/'));
	$URI = strstr($URL, '/');
	$Body = '';
	foreach($Parameters as $Key => $Value)
		if (!empty($Body))
			$Body .= '&';
		$Body .= $Key . '=' . urlencode($Value);
	$ContentLength = strlen($Body);
	$Header = "POST $URI HTTP/1.1\n";
	$Header .= "Host: $Host\n";
	$Header .= "Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded\n";
	$Header .= "Content-Length: $ContentLength\n\n";
	$Header .= "$Body\n";
	$Socket = fsockopen($Host, 80, $ErrorNumber, $ErrorMessage);
	fputs($Socket, $Header);
	while (!feof($Socket))
		$Result[] = fgets($Socket, 4096);
