Welcome to the OpenStack SDK for PHP!


  • PHP 7
  • cURL extension


You must install this library through Composer:

composer require php-opencloud/openstack

If you do not have Composer installed, please read the Composer installation instructions.

Once you have installed the SDK as a dependency of your project, you will need to load Composer’s autoloader (which registers all the required namespaces). To do this, place the following line of PHP code at the top of your application’s PHP files:

require 'vendor/autoload.php';

This assumes your application’s PHP files are located in the same folder as vendor/. If your files are located elsewhere, please supply the path to vendor/autoload.php in the require statement above.

Help and support

If you have specific problems or bugs with this SDK, please file an issue on our official Github repo. We also have a mailing list, so feel free to join to keep up to date with all the latest changes and announcements to the library.

For general feedback and support requests, send an email to sdk-support@rackspace.com.

You can also find assistance via IRC on #rackspace at freenode.net.
