API-Key doenst work

Dear Community!

After Hours of tryin to get the API to work, im DONE!! :D
I did take some Screenshots in order to explain my Problem better.
Did install the newest Version of osTicket. Did create an API-Key and did download the Sample.php. In there i did replace the Data.

In that Case im gonna get the Error Message: "Unable to create Ticket: " (space after ":" is nothing, cause the Variable $result isnt showin for some reason...)

In the Admin-Panel in osTicket i did change some Contents bout the Forms and Form-Settings. Dont think it has to do with that, isnt? (Pls loook at the Screenshot for further Info)
I did, like in the Instructions and in my Screenshot, change the Variables to match with these in my ticket_create.php File.

Not havin any kind of problem to show my API-Key. Its just a Demo-Site, so its the other Point you can have a better look into my situation.

Here i did copy the Code of my ticket_create.php - File which remains meanwhile in the root-Folder of my Webspace. The API Folder is in the /lsticket/api.
Strange is that im not havin any File named tickets.json or somethin like that. Im havin just cron.php, http.php, ecron.php etc..

File api_ticket_create.php
#!/usr/bin/php -q
# Configuration: Enter the url and key. That is it.
#  url => URL to api/task/cron e.g #
#  key => API's Key (see admin panel on how to generate a key)

$config = array(
        'url'=> '',
        'key'=> 'DE588FCA7B5A14340AF7AD4BFC7F1B99');

# Fill in the data for the new ticket, this will likely come from $_POST.

$data = array(
    'name'      =>      'John Doe',
    'email'     =>      '',
    'subject'   =>      'Test API message',
    'message'   =>      'This is a test of the osTicket API',
    'ip'        =>      $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'],
    'attachments' => array(),

 * Add in attachments here if necessary

$data['attachments'][] =
array('filename.pdf' =>
        'data:image/png;base64,' .

function_exists('curl_version') or die('CURL support required');
function_exists('json_encode') or die('JSON support required');

#set timeout

#curl post
$ch = curl_init();
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $config['url']);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, json_encode($data));
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_USERAGENT, 'osTicket API Client v1.8');
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER, FALSE);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, array( 'Expect:', 'X-API-Key: '.$config['key']));
$code = curl_getinfo($ch, CURLINFO_HTTP_CODE);

if ($code != 201)
    die('Unable to create ticket: '.$result);

$ticket_id = (int) $result;

# Continue onward here if necessary. $ticket_id has the ID number of the
# newly-created ticket


Times in Future, the Array will be filled with $_POST Data containing some Stuff from other Forms! But this can only happen if this damn API will work.

If someone notice the Field IP-Adress in the Screenshot (osTicket german Version), did change it with the Help of phpmyadmin. We are usin a subdomain host (see Screenshot), and we cant get a right ip for it, so were usin the subdomain instead. Maybe this is the Problem, but how to resolve?

If someone is rly skilled what hes doin, i can give him the Admin-Account so he can find a way to repair this..
Im hopin you Guys get a solution! Im sittin hours and hours right bfore this Stuff and cant get it workin...
