Examples

Using the wasRemoteAdmin class from Wizardry and Steamworks remote admin page, a call can be made to admin_authenticate_user to authenticate the avatar Kira Komarov using Remote Admin:

<?php
	# include the KOS class
	require_once 'wasRemoteAdmin.php';
	# create a new connection to the OpenSim server
	# with the hostname "OPENSIM" and port "10000"  
	# using the password "password"
	$req = new wasRemoteAdmin('http://OPENSIM:10000', 'password');
	# send the console command "show info" to OpenSim
	print $req->admin_authenticate_user('Kira', 'Komarov', 'mypassword', '10');

which sends the request to OpenSim and returns an XML structure documented in the following section.
