I'm trying to generate a PDF from a docx file with the generatePDF function, but I get this error message:

$:/var/www/.../phpdocx/examples/intermediate$ php DocxAndPdf.php 

PHP Fatal error:  Class 'XSLTProcessor' not found in /var/www/6conecta/components/com_seysconecta/lib/phpdocx/classes/ on line 266


I've tried also with the transformDocx function. In this case it works fine executing the example transform.php from the command line but if I do it in a script with the browser the proccess doesn't create the pdf file. I've cheked that the oppenoffcie is running.

$:/var/www/6conecta$ ps aux | grep openoffice

My phpdocx version is 3.7

As you can check on:

That class is in PHP, you just need to install and enable the XSL extension.

Thank you so much, I though XLT processor was a phpdocx class.

Now I can convert into PDF a docx file generated with phpdocx using  generatePDF  function, but there are some things that are different in PDF:

- The header and footer are in the docx but doesn't appear in the pdf file.

- The width of the tables and cells are not the same in docx and pdf.

- The border of the tables and cells are not the same in docx and pdf.

Is there any list of rules that I have to follow to generate a docx with phpdocx that I can convert to pdf keeping all its features?

Thank you so much.

Are you using the conversion plugin to do the transformation?

I've follow the tutorial and I've installed openoffice and I've run it in headless mode with:

$ /opt/openoffice.org3/program/soffice -headless -accept="socket,host=,port=8100;urp;" -nofirststartwizard

The process is running:

$ ps -aux | grep soffice

If I run the OdfConverter 32-bit the output is:

$ lib/OdfConverter/32/OdfConverter /../Informe_2014-04-25-150654.docx 

[ERROR][/var/www/.../Informe_2014-04-25-150654.docx] Conversion failed - Error during conversion

I'm using the generatePDF function. I've also tried with the transformDocx function, but when I execute in a script with the browser (not in the command line) it doesn't genereate any pdf file and I don't get any error. 

Thank you so much.

Please run the included example, advances/Transformphp, using the CLI mode; this is:

$ php Transform.php

Note that there are four options to do the transformation; please try all of them and enable the debug mode ( And check your server logs to find any error or something missing.
