I'm using a Mac OS X Server that is not logged in as the web server so the PDF generator doesn't work. It only works when logged in as a user. The soffice files are installed under /Applications like a normal app. Why do you have to be logged in at the console?

The conversion plugin based on LibreOffice needs read and write access to the .config directory on the PHP HOME.

If you don't know this HOME folder you can run


to get it.

You can change this path in the PHP config file or dynamically running this PHP line:


before doing the conversion (we are setting /var/www but you can set any other folder).
