Hi!

I have the 2.6.0 from Egroupware installed. When I click on generate pdf, I get an error that "the feature has been disabled by the admin".
What should I enable? The only link I saw about pdf was in Global Configuration, but it was for showing the pdf link, not for enabling the feature...Maybe I didn't look in the right place.

Thank you!

You need to make sure that the PDF PHP extension is enabled and also make sure that PDF settings in the admin control panel are enabled as well.

Hi!
I'm sorry I have to ask again, but where should I enable the PDF PHP extension? Is it somewhere in the forum settings, or in Egw?
I've had these programs installed just for a few days...

Thanks again!

There is a forum admin control panel called PDF management, that is where you enable PDF generation functionality.

Your PHP probably lacks PDF extension support, which is why the control panel for PDF is not being shown.

Yes, I looked in the system info and I couldn't see any pdf support there. Is there any way I can enable it, or it is completely up to the hosting company?
Is it a free module?

Thanks

If you can find the binary version of the module you can load it via the dl() function. But in most cases it is something you need your sysadmin to do for you.

Hi!

Thanks again for the time you take replying!
I looked in the forum's 3xxxxxxxxx directory, and I have a php file called pdf.php and another one called rdf.php (along with other files and directories).
I also looked in the /setup/base/src and there is a file called pdf.php.t .
Does this mean that the extension is already installed? If yes, why I cannot see it? Shocked
I thought that having this extension is a way to bypass the pdflib, which in most cases is not installed.
I am the person who can make any changes in the files that are installed, I can reinstall them, etc, but I cannot alter server's settings, as the site is hosted with a provider.

Thank you!

Those are PHP scripts to talk with the PDF library, not the library itself.

Update:
Ilia, I found a message in this forum talking about using FPDF. Can you please tell me where to get the simplified library and how to use it?
I don't need to print the whole forum, just little articles, etc.

Thanks again.

Oh, I see.
What is the library name, so I can start looking for it? If I can find it, and put it there in a directory, how do I use it?

Thank you!

FPDF pdf generation is only available in the stand-alone FUDforum.
