Creating PDF's on the Fly username msg:4154033 7:03 am on Jun 17, 2010 (gmt 0) Hi, I am running a site on a server with Centos installed and am having trouble finding the right module to install to enable the use of the pdf_new() functionality so I can create PDF's of HTML pages on the fly. Which module am I supposed to install to get this working? Is there a recommended module? Thanks in advance.

Hi there Username, What version of PHP does this server have on it? As a quick look on the manual states that it needs PHP v4 or greater... Just a thought there ;) [ ] uk2.php.net Cheers, MRb username msg:4155045 9:31 pm on Jun 18, 2010 (gmt 0)
Hi, the server has php 5, so should be no problems running the add on module. Question is which module needs to be installed? penders msg:4155175 7:49 am on Jun 19, 2010 (gmt 0)
Have you checked the PDF Requirements [ uk2.php.net] and PDF Installation [ uk2.php.net] pages in the PHP manual - they appear to offer information on how to proceed? Sorry, I can't be more help than that. username msg:4155194 10:17 am on Jun 19, 2010 (gmt 0)
Thanks. It certainly seems that PDFLIb is the one. I will look into the commercial licensing costs though. astupidname msg:4155228 12:08 pm on Jun 19, 2010 (gmt 0)
I will look into the commercial licensing costs though. Before you do that, I'd recommend looking in to FPDF or TCPDF. Or there is also a Pear package "File_PDF" available which is based on FPDF. coopster msg:4156028 2:11 pm on Jun 21, 2010 (gmt 0)
Another option is the open source project DOMPDF [ code.google.com].
