Including Zend


i try to use the Zend XmlRPC Client so i did put the Libs in a folder called "Zend" in the vendors folder in my core yii installation. Then i used the following code as i found it many times on the web:


require_once 'Zend/XmlRpc/Client.php';

Still yii replys:

require_once(/Zend/XmlRpc/Client.php) [<a href='function.require-once'>function.require-once</a>]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory

Any idea what i could have done wrong?

Okay, i did add an include path to the php.ini file

; UNIX: "/path1:/path2"  

include_path = ".:/Applications/MAMP/bin/php5/lib/php:/Users/as/Sites/yii/framework/vendors/"

And now the Client.php is included by yii but it gives the following Error:

include(Zend_Uri_Http.php) [<a href='function.include'>function.include</a>]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory

But that file does exist exactly where it should.

Anyone any experience with this?

Any good ideas?

Though i haven’t figured it out yet, it seems to be related to the autoloader.

require works but the Zend autoloader doesn’t.

#0 /Users/as/Sites/yii/framework/YiiBase.php(338): autoload()

#1 unknown(0): autoload()

#2 unknown(0): spl_autoload_call()

#3 /Users/as/Sites/yii/framework/vendors/Zend/Uri.php(125): class_exists()

#4 /Users/as/Sites/yii/framework/vendors/Zend/Http/Client.php(268): factory()

#5 /Users/as/Sites/yii/framework/vendors/Zend/XmlRpc/Client.php(266): Zend_Http_Client->setUri()


in Zend/Uri.php the Line 125 to 128 go:

if (!class_exists($className))

    require_once 'Zend/Loader.php';



Also the Zend Loader uses “include” instead of “require” though i can’t see where that should be the problem.

include should use the include path set in the php.ini as well right?

Anyone any ideas?


Not sure if any help, but for the PHPExcel classes I used something like this:



...doing stuff with PHPExcel...


That way it could register the autoload from PHPExcel…
