Hi, how are all of you? I hope you are going well.

I hope you can help me, I searched this issue through all the web and I don't find any solution, so I decided to write to you.

I am trying to make a simple authentication to the Web Service API of Odoo V9 and the only thing that I have got is the following error:

"This page doesn't work" --> ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE

My code is the same as the documentation shows:


$url = '';

 $db = 'lisa_1';

 $username = 'admin';

 $password = 'admin';


 $common = ripcord::client($url . "/xmlrpc/2/common");

 $uid = $common->authenticate($db, $username, $password, array());

echo "I am connected " . $uid;


In advance thanks a lot for your help. I need this so much.

Thank you



Before trying to authenticate, can you just try to get the version of your Odoo instance ? just to be sure you can reach it.

Like this:

$common = ripcord::client($url . "/xmlrpc/2/common");

print_r( $common->version() );
