Well, it's not that, I don't think; I'm not really clear on *where* the PDF is temporarily written, but I get the impression that it's not on the web server--but I'm not sure about that.
The thing is, if it *is* writing it to the web server, I don't know *where* on the web server, otherwise I could make sure WRITE permissions were assigned to that directory.
Works great on other sites I've done, just not this one... different web server though.

Any idea what directory it's using for that storage? Is it perhaps trying to store the file in a non-existant directory, or one for which the web user has insufficient permissions? Any more details in the apache error log?
