If you would like to create PDFs on the fly with PHP you will need to install PDFlib.

There is a bunch of documentation but these are the steps I used for centos 5.5

Keep in mind not all these commands work for Cent but I just through everything at it.

if you get to the ./configure make and get the error no gcc type: yum install gcc


pecl install pdflib
apt-get install php-pear
peardev install pecl/pdflib
aptitude install php-pear
yum install php-pear*
peardev install pecl/pdflib
mkdir installs
cd installs

mkdir pdf
cd pdf
tar -xzvf PDFlib-Lite-7.0.5p3.tar.gz
cd pdf
cd pdf
./configure && make && make install

pecl install pdflib
 path:  /usr/local

nano /etc/php.d/pdf.ini
add line:

service httpd restart


PHP info should show
