I am trying to use PHP as a SOAP client with a MSSQL 2005 SOAP endpoint. I can query the wsdl in my browser without a problem, but in PHP I get the error:

Warning: SoapClient::SoapClient(http://myuri?wsdl) [function.SoapClient-SoapClient]: failed to open stream: HTTP request failed! HTTP/1.1 505 HTTP Version not supported in C:\scripts\test.php on line 2

Warning: SoapClient::SoapClient() [function.SoapClient-SoapClient]: I/O warning : failed to load external entity "http://myuri?wsdl" in C:\scripts\test.php on line 2

Fatal error: Uncaught SoapFault exception: [WSDL] SOAP-ERROR: Parsing WSDL: Couldn't load from 'http://myuri?wsdl' in C:\scripts\test.php:2 Stack trace: #0 C:\scripts\test.php(2): SoapClient->SoapClient('http://...', Array) #1 {main} thrown in C:\scripts\test.php on line 2

A TCP trace shows the following:

GET /uri?wsdl HTTP/1.0

HTTP/1.1 505 HTTP Version not supported
Content-Length: 0
Server: Microsoft-SQL/9.0 Microsoft-HTTPAPI/1.0
Date: Mon, 22 Oct 2007 15:44:13 GMT
Connection: close

Reproduce code:
$client = new SoapClient('http://myuri?wsdl');

Expected result:
It should be able to use HTTP/1.1 instead of HTTP/1.0 for the SOAP client request.

I downloaded but still got the same problem. Is there anything else to configure, in the php.ini or as an option in the SoapClient constructor?

I am having the same exact problem.  I am running MSSQL 2005 also and have set up an endpoint.  I can load in the browser without issues but not with the SOAP client in PHP.  Has anyone solved this?

I am using Rest Request/ response mechanism for web services and i am also getting this error.Is there any solution to this besides having to upgrade or change the php version.

The problem is in soap_xmlParseFile():
    old_allow_url_fopen = PG(allow_url_fopen);
    PG(allow_url_fopen) = 1;
    ctxt = xmlCreateFileParserCtxt(filename);
    PG(allow_url_fopen) = old_allow_url_fopen;

The code is trying to take advantage of the php's tcp wrapper functionality around fopen calls so it can use xmlCreateFileParserCtxt() with a URL.  Unfortunately, the tcp wrapper functionality only supports HTTP/1.0.

This may fixable by using xmlCreateURLParserCtxt() instead of xmlCreateFileParserCtxt().  The documentation says it supports files and URLs (source:

I have no endpoint with which to test against this bug.  Someone please apply the following patch and test it or email me (hermanradtkePLZNOSPAM at gmail dot com) the URL to an endpoint that only supports HTTP/1.1.

Fixed in CVS HEAD and PHP_5_3 (not in PHP_5_2).

Now ext/soap uses HTTP/1.1 by default, but it's possible to switch back to HTTP/1.0 using stream context

$ctx = stream_context_create(array(
    'protocol_version'=> 1.0,
$soap = new SoapClient($wsdl,array("stream_context"=>$ctx));
