Hello All:

Just installed FUDforum to be used for an academic Mailman list that we had for about 15 years. Imported about 10,000 messages from the Mailman archives.

Here one of several *minor* problems:
Something seems wrong with the "PDF Creation" option. When clicking onto the PDF icon from within a postiong I get an error that file "FPDF.inc" cannot be found. I made a copy of the existing "fpdf.inc" file, just changing capitalization to: FPDF.inc So, we now have FPDF.inc and fpdf.inc there (content identical. But am still getting an error after that:
Fatal error: Class 'FPDF' not found in /home/user/public_html/forum/pdf.php on line 16

Anyone know what to edit?

The forum is installed on a CentOS 5.7 Linux server with cPanel as hostng interface ... I am the server admin, could fix things as root, if necessary.



Thanks.
Frank

And you run this forum on a CentOS 5.x server also?

Not sure, it's Ilia's server. I think it runs on Gentoo Linux.

If you have root access, you see what OS it is at: /etc/redhat-release
And if indeed Gentoo Linux (is it even a Redhat flavor?), that is not a mainstream Linux flavor for hosting servers--which is not to say it is bad, just not the most popular one. It may well be that on that system the difference between capitalized and non-caitalized file names dos not matter, I do not know. But under most Linux systems it does. And my suyspicion so far is that the problem is caused by inconsistemcies in the referral (within your code) to the FPDF files ... sometimes in caps, sometimes not.
