    Question PDF automated converting server


    Hello,
    A friend of mine who works at a charitable organisation was asking to help him in a small task.
    He have two type of users, one type that have full access to a file and the other who can just
    view the file. Now to make it easier for the viewer who don't always have access to M$ office
    suite like word or excel and who cant afford it he was considering to let the server convert
    these file for them to pdf on the fly, without deleting or replacing the original file.
    And the commercial version which he found are very expensive.

    Now I was considering have Linux box who have a cups with the virtual PDF-printer installed
    but the thing is he was looking for a web interface solution where the viewer don't have
    to install any client software on his pc. He should see a list of files when he click on one
    it will open in PDF format after it have been converted silently in the server.

    Please any suggestion would very great-full.

    Thank you in advance.
