I cann't install soapcliejnt on wordpress on azure app service

Haze 1 Reputation point

In WooCommerce -> Status I have message like that "Your server does not have the SoapClient class enabled - some gateway plugins which use SOAP may not work as expected." So I want to install SoapClient on my azure web service.

I try to do it over Azure SSH and bash. I have tried in several ways. I was closest to doing it because it was even installed with this command: pear install SOAP-0.14.0, but after reset server on azure. It still does not work.


When I perform this action twice I get this message, but when I do a reset I can install it again.

I also tried with sudo apt-get install php7.3-soap

Results from SSH:

Results from BASH:

I also tried with yum install php-soap but yum doesn't work on SSH and bash.

Additional information:

Would someone be able to tell me what I'm doing wrong? Thank you in advance.

    Hi @Haze ,

    We are sorry you're facing this issue. Have you tried updating your PHP version (7.4) to the latest version?

    Make sure your PHP version is updated before trying to install an extension. To update the PHP version, Go to your app in the Azure portal and click on the Settings button. From the Settings blade, select Application Settings and choose the new PHP version.Click the Save button at the top of the Application settings blade. This can also be done through CLI and powershell as shown in this documentation.

    Also, you can double-check to see if you already have SOAP installed by using this command: php -i | grep -i soap. If it is not installed, trying using this command sudo apt-get install php7.4-soap and then restart your server. You can also see this related Stack Overflow thread.

    Hope that helps. Please let us know if you have further questions
