Hey,

I use the xml-rpc API from webfaction to look up some email-adresses linked to my account. From one day to another it stoped working. The phpxmlrpc version3 library throws an error message when calling list_emails:

Invalid return payload: enable debugging to examine incoming payload found not-xmlrpc xml element

Digging in the source code revealed, that found not-xmlrpc xml element is the reason of the error. Enabling debugging in the library revealed the received XML document. The document is well-formed according to xmlwf, but I do not know about xml-rpc coherence.

Does anyone know about some API change, experienced similar dysfunction lately or has an idea what could be going on?

Regards, Gregor

Could you please open a support ticket providing the exact steps/code and the username you are using, as we can't reproduce that error, at the moment?

Our developers have rolled out a fix for this issue.

The cause was in the way that the PHP XMLRPC library handles (or rather, fails to handle) null values. We've modified the list_emails API method so that it will return empty strings instead of null values where appropriate.
