From manual page:

In the explanation of the parameter "options": "If working in non-WSDL mode, the location and uri options must be set, where location is the URL to request and uri is the target namespace of the SOAP service."

I tried to learn SOAP from zero and it took me a long time to realize the "location" means the location of the server. All examples show "http://localhost/soap.php" and give the impression of it meaning the client script.

I would suggest using "http://localhost/soapserver.php" in the examples and also clarifying this in the parameter explanation.
