I'm getting a SOAP error (v2, WS-I Compliant) that I'm having trouble debugging. I'm getting a "Receiver, Unknown Error", which the header shows to be a 500 Server Error and appears as such in my nginx logs:

127.0.0.1 - - [02/Jan/2015:18:20:18 +0000] "GET /index.php/api/v2_soap/index/?wsdl=1 HTTP/1.1" 200 354035 "-" "-"
12.123.1.12 - - [02/Jan/2015:18:20:18 +0000] "POST /index.php/api/v2_soap/index/ HTTP/1.1" 500 273 "-" "PHP" 

I can do other calls, for instance a salesOrderInfo request will work, but this salesOrderCreateInvoice fails.

Any suggestions on how to debug something so vague?

My tips for debugging SOAP calls:

Disable WSDL Cache

Under System > Configuration > Magento Core API set Enable WSDL Cache to "No".

Write a basic PHP script for your calls

ini_set("soap.wsdl_cache_enabled", "0");
$apiUrl = ''; //your api data
$apiUser = ''; //your api data
$apiPass = ''; //your api data
$client = new SoapClient($apiUrl, array('cache_wsdl' => WSDL_CACHE_NONE, 'trace' => 1, 'soap_version' => SOAP_1_2));
$sessionId = $client->login($apiUser, $apiPass);
//some more SOAP calls

Debug SOAP request/response

You can debug with $client->__getLastRequest() or $client->__getLastResponse()

Check your logs for any error messages/notices

Check if there are any SOAP call error messages in your logs that might help tracing down the problem.

Debug

If nothing helps, check what data is received by the API. Check out the Api.php and/or Api/V2.php files of the specific modules.
