Since this whole PHP SOAP vs Pear SOAP started, I've been doing a little research and, just FYI, if you have any of the following Endurance International Group owned ISPs, chances you have PHP SOAP compiled into your *ix Apache code is pretty slim. Chances that you'll be able to get them to install it, unless you go to the EIG website and scream long and loud, are slim as well. If you have a Windows server (.asp) you MAY have PHP SOAP Lite which MAY or MAY NOT work with this module. I don't know for sure. You WILL need PHP SOAP for this module to function correctly because FedEx has switched from a API model to a Web Service model. EIG are the hosting equivalent of The Borg. All in one Data Center, all set up the same, and your individual needs are irrelavent, Just the names are different. Look them up....
The ISPs are; www.2slick.com, AccountSupport, www.apollohosting.com, www.berryinfosysllc.com, www.bizland.com, www.bluedomino.com, www.carielweb.com, www.computersconcepts.net, www.dollar2host.com, www.dot5hosting.com, DomainHost, www.easycgi.com, www.ehost.com, www.entryhost.com, www.fatcow.com, www.freeyellow.com, www.globat.com, www.hostaday.com, www.hostcentric.com, www.hostingbyexcel.com, www.hostwithmenow.com, www.hostyoursite.com, www.hypermart.net, IMOutdoorsHosting, www.ipage.com, www.ipower.com, IpowerWeb, www.myresellerhome.com, www.networkshosting.com, www.osullivansystems.com, www.powweb.com, www.purehost.com, www.readyhosting.co.uk, www.readyhosting.com, www.sabapro.com, www.southeastweb.com, www.spry.com, www.startlogic.com, www.tighthost.com, www.usanethosting.com, www.VirtualAve.net, www.vpslink.com, www.web2010.com, www.webdevhosting.com, www.webhost4life.com, WebstrikeSolutions, www.xeran.com, YourWebHosting, www.zipitdesigns.com
This list is from 04/2010 and they have "acquired" several more hosting providers since then. The names without a www or .whatever are dead and gone.
Even if they do say the will install the extensions, be prepared to wait. I have been waiting, oh, about 32 hours for a 45 minute re-compile.
There ARE other ISPs out there that supply PHP SOAP on all their packages, regardless of price or flavour and that aren't owned by EIG. You just have to look for them. I found the one I'm going to if this takes too much longer.
I hope this list helps to prevent people from beating their heads against the wall trying to get this contribution to work.
The FedEx Direct API module will not work. If you have an account and meter # for it already, it will work until they take it down and you will have to go to the Web Service module (this one) and, if you have one of the above ISPs, chances are you are going to be SOL
