Solution 1

You need DomPDF for rendering the PDF. Check if you have the DomPDF library, otherwise download and implement it as follow:

$rendererName = PHPExcel_Settings::PDF_RENDERER_DOMPDF;
$rendererLibrary = 'domPDF0.6.0beta3';
$rendererLibraryPath = dirname(__FILE__). 'libs/classes/dompdf' . $rendererLibrary;

Note: Use and implement solution 1 because this method fully tested our system.
