This bug has been fixed in SVN.

If this was a documentation problem, the fix will appear on pear.php.net
by the end of next Sunday (CET).

If this was a problem with the pear.php.net website, the change should
be live shortly.

Otherwise, the fix will appear in the package's next release.

Thank you for the report and for helping us make PEAR better.

I worked around the PHP static/non-static signature problem by testing
for $this being set in the create() method. The result is that the
factory method no longer pollutes the XML-RPC proxy class. You may call
create directly on your proxy and the method call will be routed through

The fix is revision 308646.

Can not call remote function called create() because
XML_RPC2_Client::create() already exists.

create() should optimally be renamed create___() like the others
functions in this class, or the constructor should be used. Alternately
the static create factory class could be moved to some utility class.

In theory there shouldn't be a conflict since create() is static and the
remote functions are not, but php seems to call it in an object context

The workaround I'm using is to call remoteCall___ directly, but it leads
to somewhat ugly syntax, and create() is a function name I would expect
to be a reasonably common choice in various remote APIs.

$result = $client->create(array('parent_type' => 'global',
'parent_path' => '', 'type' => 'domain', 'name' => $domain);

has to become

$result = $client->remoteCall___('create', array(array('parent_type'
=> 'global', 'parent_path' => '', 'type' => 'domain', 'name' =>
