I am running phpdocx corporate on windows as well as on linux.

php config is exact same. openoffice/libreoffice server is running on both systems

php and java is in system path.

check.php also returns all green on both systems.

I used example from


require_once 'path_to_phpdocx/classes/';

$docx = new CreateDocx();


$text = 'Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, ' .

    'sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut ' .

    'enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut' .

    'aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit ' .

    'in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. ' .

    'Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui ' .

    'officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum.';

$paramsText = array(

    'b' => 'on',

    'font' => 'Arial'


$docx->addText($text, $paramsText);


$docx->transformDocx('example_text.docx', 'example_text.html');

but it is not saving files.

I am passing the contents of output files to a variable which is used to display in ckeditor. As files are not being saved so php fails at file_get_contents() as it can't find the output html file.


I have used 'method'=>'direct' as well as 'method' => 'script'

I can see with xdebug that it is going through

passthru('php ' . dirname(__FILE__) . '/../lib/convert.php -s ' . $docSource . ' -t ' . $tempDoc . ' -d ' . $docDestination . ' -o ' . $options['odfconverter']);  

when method is script

and going through

passthru('java -jar ' . dirname(__FILE__) . '/../lib/openoffice/jodconverter-2.2.2/lib/jodconverter-cli-2.2.2.jar ' . $tempDoc . ' ' . $docDestination);

when method is direct


What am I doing wrong?
