How to send SMS message from Wordpress, using Twilio?

I'm trying to use Twilio in a Wordpress app and it didn't work, but my same code works in a different site/server.

I added the twilio-php folder and some PHP code to call it inside the wordpress root. I also added code to include it in the existing Wordpress PHP code, and I can't figure it out where the problem is. Can you help?


require "twilio-php/Services/Twilio.php";
/* Send an SMS using Twilio. You can run this file 3 different ways:
* - Save it as sendnotifications.php and at the command line, run
* php sendnotifications.php
* - Upload it to a web host and load mywebhost.com/sendnotifications.php
* in a web browser.
* - Download a local server like WAMP, MAMP or XAMPP. Point the web root
* directory to the folder containing this file, and load
* localhost:8888/sendnotifications.php in a web browser.
// Include the PHP Twilio library. You need to download the library from
// twilio.com/docs/libraries, and move it into the folder containing this
// file.

// Set our AccountSid and AuthToken from twilio.com/user/account
$AccountSid = "********************";
$AuthToken = "*********************";

// Instantiate a new Twilio Rest Client
$client = new Services_Twilio($AccountSid, $AuthToken);

/* Your Twilio Number or Outgoing Caller ID */
$from = '**********';

// make an associative array of server admins. Feel free to change/add your
// own phone number and name here.
$people = array(
"*********" => "******",
"**********" => "*********",


// Iterate over all admins in the $people array. $to is the phone number,
// $name is the user's name
foreach ($people as $to => $name) {
// Send a new outgoing SMS */
$body = "Hello this is a test message";
$client->account->sms_messages->create($from, $to, $body);
echo "Sent message to $name";
