Hi all,

I’m writing a script that uses Magento API and collects some data with SOAP.
Although I am not an advanced Magento user / developer, my script runs fine on localhost but returns an Internal Server Error: HTTP Error 500.

Not sure if I’m exposing something by posting this, but I need it sorted soon. So… am I right to use “” to check on SOAP?
It returns http header “Error 500”. When I use “try /catch” I am presented with some more details, but I still can’t get enough information to fix this.

FaultWSDL-SOAP-ERRORParsing WSDLCouldn't load from '' : failed to load external entity ""

So… help!
