    I've downloaded the PDFLib library -- but how do I get it working with PHP3?

    from the FAQ on php.net

    "2.4 How do I get these libraries to work?
    You will need to follow instructions provided with the library. Some of these libraries are detected automatically when you run the 'configure' script of PHP (such as the GD library), and others you will have to enable using '--with-EXTENSION' options to 'configure'. Run 'configure --help' for a listing of these."

    Um... okay, I'm still confused.

    Basically I have an account on a linux server which already has PHP3 installed, but it doesn't seem to have the pdflib library installed.

    I downloaded the pdflib library from the internet and installed it in my directory on the server.

    But it has no documentation on how to link the pdflib installation with the php stuff...

    BTW, does getting this PDFLib to work require root access? If not, what would I need to do?

    If yes, what would root need to do?

    Thanks,
    Mike

    To link the PDF library into PHP, it requires a recompile of PHP, so you're going to have to ask your Linux admin very nicely.

    Kludgy way to fix might be to roll your own PHP CGI (assuming your server admin lets you run your own CGIs) and pass all your webpages through it instead of the supplied PHP.
