What means

Notice: Undefined index: SERVER_ADDR in ..\phpdocx\classes\GenerateDocx.php on line 37

I've set Error-reporting to E_ALL (to geht also the warnings)

I simply did
$docx = new CreateDocx();

.. add some text to $docx


The same with Template works without warning message about the SERVER_ADDR


best regards Siegfried

phpdocx uses $_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'] ( for license checking. Maybe your server is not returning that information ( Please set it to your server configuration or manually. The same GenerateDocx class is used for CreateDocx and CreateDocxFromTemplate (this class extends CreateDocx).

If you can't add that information, please edit GenerateDocx.php and comment that line.

Thank's a lot, the server contains SERVER_NAME but not SERVER_ADDR (I think it's also not specified in RFC 3875 - The Common Gateway Interface (CGI) Version 1.1) and there is no guarantee that every web server will provide any of these. The question is: Is SERVER_ADDR really necessary?

But I'll find a workaround.

best regards, Siegfried

It's only needed for the license checking, please comment it or force a value to avoid the PHP notice.

We have moved the topic to the dev team to add a new check in case there's no SERVER_ADDR value set.
