I am new to SharePoint . I'm trying to access SharePoint list via PHP. I am able to connect to SharePoint which means my app is authenticating but not able access list data.


List does not exist. The page you selected contains a list that does not exist. It may have been deleted by another user


//Requires the NuSOAP library

$username = 'my_user_name';
$password = 'my_password';
$rowLimit = '150';

/* A string that contains either the display name or the GUID for the list.
 * It is recommended that you use the GUID, which must be between curly
 * braces ({}).
$listName = "Custom App_3";

/* Local path to the Lists.asmx WSDL file (localhost). You must first download
 * it manually from your SharePoint site (which should be available at
 * yoursharepointsite.com/subsite/_vti_bin/Lists.asmx?WSDL)
$wsdl = "http://localhost/share_point_php/Soap/SharePointAPI.wsdl";

//Basic authentication. Using UTF-8 to allow special characters.
$client = new nusoap_client($wsdl, true);


//XML for the request. Add extra fields as necessary
$xml ='
<GetListItems xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/soap/">

//Invoke the Web Service
$result = $client->call('GetListItems', $xml);
//Error check
if(isset($fault)) {
  echo("[![<h2>][1]][1]Error</h2>". $fault);

//Extracting and preparing the Web Service response for display
$responseContent = utf8_decode(htmlspecialchars(substr($client->response,strpos($client->response, "<"),strlen($client->response)-1)));

//Displaying the request and the response, broken down by header and XML content
echo "<h2>Request</h2><pre>" . utf8_decode(htmlspecialchars($client->request, ENT_QUOTES)) . "</pre>";
echo "<h2>Response header</h2><pre>" . utf8_decode(htmlspecialchars(substr($client->response,0,strpos($client->response, "<")))) . "</pre>";
echo "<h2>Response content</h2><pre>".$responseContent."</pre>";

//Uncomment for debugging info:
//echo("<h2>Debug</h2><pre>" . htmlspecialchars($client->debug_str, ENT_QUOTES) . "</pre>");

Try this api: https://github.com/thybag/PHP-SharePoint-Lists-API

I have tried and it works perfectly. you can also find how to's of the api on same link.

<?php include "Thybag\SharePointAPI.php"; include "Thybag\Auth\SharePointOnlineAuth.php"; include "Thybag\Auth\SoapClientAuth.php"; include "Thybag\Auth\StreamWrapperHttpAuth.php"; include "Thybag\Service\ListService.php"; include "Thybag\Service\QueryObjectService.php"; use Thybag\SharePointAPI; $sp = new SharePointAPI('<[email protected]>','<password>','<path_to_WSDL>,'SPONLINE'); //SPONLINE if your point is online else add true instead $data = $sp->read('Documents'); var_dump($data);

This will return you the array of all lists stored on sharepoint. Then based on your need you can get the file name by calling array from the above array list.
