problem - generate dynamic PDF files on the server

I tried to use HTML2FPDF to generate dynamic local files and save the
generated files on the server. I don't know why it gives me the
following error message:

" Warning: fopen(gen_pdf/gen_pdf/yan.pdf) [function.fopen]: failed to
open stream: No such file or directory in
/export/home/.../pdfCov/fpdf.php on line 1698
FPDF error: Unable to create output file: gen_pdf/yan.pdf "

I cut and paste the following part of the code into a test.php file and
run it. the test file can generate text file without any problem:

$name="testfile .pdf";
$handle = file_exists('ge n_pdf/'.$name);
if (!$handle)
$f = fopen('gen_pdf/'.$name,'x+');
if(!$f) $this->Error('Unabl e to create output file: '.$name);
fwrite ($f,"testtest") ;
//fwrite($f,$this->buffer,strlen( $this->buffer)); //this line is in
fpdf.php to generate pdf contents


Anyone can help me out?

I don't know anything about the particular package you are using, but,
looking at your error message and code snippet, I'd guess that the
problem is that the gen_pdf/gen_pdf/ directory does not exist.
(Your testfile just goes to the gen_pdf/ directory, but the package
code appears to be trying to put the file in gen_pdf/gen_pdf/, and if
that sub-directory doesn't exist, you will get that kind of fopen

Hi, Kurt,

Thank you for your help.

It was a dumb mistake while I was trying to test in different ways.

I modified the code, but the same error message occurs:

Warning: fopen(gen_pdf/yan.pdf) [function.fopen]: failed to open
stream: No such file or directory in /export/home.../pdfCov/fpdf.php on
line 1698
FPDF error: Unable to create output file: yan.pdf

Any idea what is wrong?

Hi, I'm sure there are a bunch of them, but googling just returned full-fledged CMS that require a DBMS and generate dynamic pages.

I've noticed that the (old copies I run of) IE and Netscape seem never to send if-modified-since. But the strange thing is that Opera sends if-modified-since but when I reply with "HTTP/1.0 304 Not Modified" it is not refreshing the screen from its cache, it is leaving the screen blank.

There must be millions of dynamically generated html pages out there now, built by on-the-fly php code (and jsp, perl cgi, asp, etc). Programatic page generation is transparently useful. But querying a database, negotiatinig lots of if-then-else logic and echo'ing html code out on port 80 every time a page is requested has to be a huge waste of resources. Why not use that logic to print static html instead of dynamic?
