We are trying to convert an html file to docx file, and came across your solution which might work for us.

I am trying to examine if the conversion will work before we make a purchase, although I am constantly getting Permission denied.

When we read the file with fopen, it does work resulting in a docx file without the external css (not good).

I have followed every post here and checked everything from files permissions to php user running and php.ini configurations, but i keep getting :

PHP Fatal error:  Uncaught Exception: Permission denied on myfile.html. in /Library/WebServer/Documents/pathToPHPDocX/lib/dompdfParser/include/parserhtml.cls.php:308

Stack trace:

When running from localhost and terminal.

I am using mac OSX with no addons.


I need to fix the css not been included when passing html as string, or the permission issue to try and include the css by file.


Waiting for a response.

Thank you in advance.
