    include("../classes/wikidot_class.inc");
 
//set startup parameters for xmlrpc
//change path to your server location
    require_once("../classes/xmlrpc.inc");
    $GLOBALS ['xmlrpc_null_extension' ] = true;
    $ServerPath = "xml-rpc-api.php";
    $ServerHostName = "www.wikidot.com";
    $ServerPort = "";
 
//create a client for your site
    $Client = new xmlrpc_client($ServerPath,$ServerHostName,$ServerPort);
    $Client->setCredentials("USERNAME","API KEY");
    $Client->setDebug($newdebuglevel);
    $Client->setSSLVerifyPeer(false);
    $Client->setSSLVerifyHost(false);
    $Client->return_type = "phpvals"; //forces return as php values
    $SiteName = "SITENAME";

    $siteobj = new WikidotSite($SiteName, $Client);
    $returnarray = array();
    echo "<h3>categories.select example</h3></br><hr>";
    $siteobj->php_categories_select($SiteName, $returnarray);
