I'm having issues creating an html file from a docx file.  I'm copying the example from http://www.phpdocx.com/api-documentation/format-conversion/convert-Word-docx-into-pdf-with-PHP. My code is 100% identical, except I'm converting it to .html.  This is the only difference in my code:

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

When this runs, the example_text.docx file is created as expected, but example_text.html is not.

Any ideas why this may be failing?

I should also note that it won't convert to any format.  Trying to convert to example_text.pdf for example does not work as well.  No target file is generated.

Hello,

Are you using the plugin based on OpenOffice or LibreOffice?

Please follow the instructions available on (http://www.phpdocx.com/documentation/conversion-plugin) to debug it.

The most common error is rw access to the temp folder access of any of both programs.

Regards.

Hi, I am using Open Office.  

Following the debug instructions, I ran the script with debug and got this back:

You can ignore this.  I switched to LibreOffice and everything seems to work fine.
