Our web host (Host Rocket) refuses to load the PDF library. Is there another way to create PDFs within PHP without installing something on the server? I think not, since it's a server side activity, so anything like FPDF would need installation too.

FPDF doesn't require any sort of installation, just a few include files.

I have used the stand-alone PDF library from, http://ros.co.nz/pdf/ . You just have to upload the 2 class files to your website, there is nothing to install. The documentation is easy to understand and it can be used to make fairly complex PDF documents. I have use it for years to create PDF invoices that are emailed to clients and haven't had any issues.

Check out HTML2PDF, built using FPDF library. Should be relatively easy to use compared to FPDF.
