Base64 Decode To PDF - Save PDF On Server?

Dec 1, 2009

How can I take a base64 encoded PDF and decode it then save it on my server for linking back to the saved file later? I have searched for some time now on multiple forms and with google, and I have come up empty handed for anything that can even push me in the right direction. Maybe my search terms are poorly constructed, The string that is the base64 encoded pdf comes to me via an xml feed and is dynamically generated through the USPS system. I have tested the encoded strings in 3rd party apps I have found along my search for finding a way to do it with php, and it does work in those.

So if anyone has any experience with this, or can point me towards a decent document (other than the site for the encode manual) that can help me out, or if anyone wants to throw me a demo concept to work with,

.net - C# To PHP Base64 Encode / Decode?

Nov 2, 2008

So I have this c# application that needs to ping my web server thats running linux/php stack.
I am having problems with the c# way of base 64 encoding bytes.

my c# code is like:

byte[] encbuff = System.Text.Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes("the string");
String enc = Convert.ToBase64String(encbuff);

and php side:

$data = $_REQUEST['in'];
$raw = base64_decode($data);

with larger strings 100+ chars it fails. I think this is due to c# adding '+'s in the encoding but not sure.

Base64 Decode French Characters?

Jan 26, 2011

We are getting base64 encoded (XML) data from a third party. If the XML data is in English, everything works fine, I am able do base64 decode, and parse the XML. If the XML is all lower case French characters, everything works fine. But if the xml data contains upper case French characters (like &Agrave), if I do base64 decode and try to parse it, the parser fails.

Ajax - Flash To Base64 Encode / Decode

May 31, 2010

I'm using AS3 to base64 encode a JPG and pass it to Javascript. I'm attempting to use AJAX to pass that base64 encoded string to PHP and have PHP decode it. (I know I could send it back to Flash and Flash could decode it and send it to PHP, but I'm trying to eliminate the need for Flash on the decoding end).

It appears that AS3's encodeToBase64String() function and and PHP's base64_decode() function do not use the same algorithm, as PHP evaluates it as a base64 encoded object, but does not seem to output it properly. Is there a way to rectify this problem? Note: Please no posts about not needing Javascript. Javascript is a necessary step for reasons not detailed here.

How To Download And Save Into The Server

I am designing a university website that is supposed to have faculty's resume in it but in order to make it easy for them to update their CV I want to ask them to have it as a txt file in their own webdirectory. The goal is to write a code in php so that it goes and downloads their accessible txt file, save it into the server and after several other steps shows it as html.

My major problem is how to download a file from the web and save it into the server by php so that I can open and read it. I would really appreciate any ideas that you professionals might have.

Should I Save Images To The Server

Jun 21, 2005

I'm using php to generate pictures, the pictures are maps with different locations plotted on them in different colors to signify information. Right now what the php does is it goes and looks in a mySQL database to get latitude and longitude and information about the location then it draws the location on the map. Right now it does this for every person who goes and looks at the site. I'm wondering if this puts an undue amount of strain on the server and I should look into a way of generating images and then uploading them as flat image files to the server and serving those image files?

So should I make the images every time?

or should I save the images to the server and serve those to the client?

Trouble is, once the user opens the report in Microsoft Word, that program exhibits some odd behavior regarding the dynamically generated images. So, using PHP, we want to save our dynamically generated charts on the server, because Word can handle simple linked images without any problems.

Merge Two Images Together On Server Then Save?

I have a bunch of images on my server, and i'd like to give them all a thick black border. I know i could use CSS, but i'd rather the border was real. My images are all the same size, so it's nothing more than centering the server image onto this black box image, then merging them together and re-saving the server image.

I could technically do this in photoshop too, but there's a ton of images...

If i could shrink the image after i'm done, that'd be nice too. They are a bit larger than i need.
