I installed the library for pdftk on my LAMP, and am trying to run it programatically to split a pdf into separate files for each page..

Assuming that I have the correct location for the pdftk library should

<? $command = "/usr/local/bin/pdftk example.pdf burst";
exec($command); ?>


with the pdf in the same folder as the php script do it?

Sounds about right. Have you tried this yet? If you have safe mode on, make sure that the pdftk is in the allowed execution directory.

Before trying through PHP, trying running the same command in the command line and tell me what happens.
