Hey Everyone,


So im fooling around with this api program to have my runtime apps get verified when they start by a serial key. Here is the PHP code if you were creating a new license key.


/*** Mandatory data ***/

// Post URL

$postURL = "";

// The Secret key

$secretKey = "";


/*** Optional Data ***/

$firstname = "John";

$lastname = "Doe";

$email = "";


// prepare the data

$data = array ();

$data['secret_key'] = $secretKey;

$data['slm_action'] = 'slm_create_new';

$data['first_name'] = $firstname;

$data['last_name'] = $lastname;

$data['email'] = $email;


// send data to post URL

$ch = curl_init ($postURL);

curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_POST, true);

curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $data);

curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);

$returnValue = curl_exec ($ch);


// Process the return values




Here is the code for checking a key



api_params = array(

'slm_action' => 'slm_check',

'secret_key' => '',

'license_key' => 'KEYTOCHECK',


// Send query to the license manager server

$response = wp_remote_get(add_query_arg($api_params, YOUR_LICENSE_SERVER_URL), array('timeout' => 20, 'sslverify' => false));



Here is my script in filemaker. I cant get it to connect and send a return value back. Now for the sake of this post , i remove the URL im sending it to and my API key. Any ideas on what im doing wrong on this ? Thanks for your help.
