Splunk PHP SDK Examples not running due to Login Error: failed to open stream: operation failed

Path Finder

I have been trying to get the Splunk PHP SDK examples to work via XAMPP on ubuntu, and I've run into the following error.

Login Failed.
Reason: fopen(https://localhost:8000/services/auth/login): failed to open stream: operation failed 

I've followed the documentation here: http://dev.splunk.com/view/php-sdk/SP-CAAAEKG
and here: https://github.com/splunk/splunk-sdk-php

According to the latter, the error is due to OpenSSL not being enabled. But even after enabling OpenSSL in the php.ini file, it still continues to show the same error?

It seems strange that you're attempting to connect to port 8000 with the API. By default the Splunk API uses port 8089 (also referred to as the management port). Port 8000 is by default the web interface port (and API clients like the PHP client, Ruby, and Java client need to use the API port and not the web interface port).

Did you change these ports in your Splunk installation or could it be that you're pointing the PHP SDK at the incorrect port?

Which version of PHP are you using? There is a known issue on PHP 5.6 (and probably 5.6+) that we have a potential workaround for. Please try the change proposed in this pull request and let us know if that works.

edit: the link doesn't seem to be working, here it is https://github.com/splunk/splunk-sdk-php/pull/33
