Magento SOAP extension is not loaded.

For SOAP to work within the Magento application, the PHP SOAP extension ("soap.so") needs to be installed on the server

SOAP Extension

For SOAP to work within the Magento application, the PHP SOAP extension ("soap.so") needs to be installed on the server. The SOAP extension can be enabled by editing the php.ini file if the extension is already installed.

It's best to ask the company that hosts your web site to install the SOAP extension for you. If they can't do it, ask one of your developers who helps maintain the store.

Here is the documentation from the PHP manual that will explain how to install and configure the SOAP extension. For RPM-based Linux distributions this is installed with the command "yum install php-soap".

You can check if your Magento application has full SOAP support by browsing to the page
http://the-store-url.com.au/api/v2_soap (replace 'the-store-url.com.au' with your actual store URL).

It should give you an XML-document, offering a detailed explanation about the usage of SOAP. If you see the message "0 Unable to load Soap extension on the server" or "0 SOAP extension is not loaded", then SOAP support is missing from the Webserver.
