the script is very easy taken from the shared documentation


// Allocate a new XSLT processor
// $xh=xslt_create();

// Process the document
if (xslt_process($xh, 'rubrica.xml', 'trasformatore.xsl', 'result.xml')) {
    print "SUCCESS, sample.xml was transformed by sample.xsl into result.xml";
    print ", result.xml has the following contents\n<br>\n";
    print "<pre>\n";
    print "</pre>\n";
else {
    print "Sorry, sample.xml could not be transformed by sample.xsl into";
    print "  result.xml the reason is that " . xslt_error($xh) . " and the ";
    print "error code is " . xslt_errno($xh);



the output is

Fatal error: Call to undefined function: xslt_process() in C:\apache\htdocs\webpages\html2xml\converter.php on line 11

Sorry, but your problem does not imply a bug in PHP itself.  For a
list of more appropriate places to ask for help using PHP, please
visit as this bug system is not the
appropriate forum for asking support questions. 

Thank you for your interest in PHP.

Read the doc:

I'm suffering from the same problem using:
Win2000 (build 5.00.2195 SP2)
PHP 4.3.1

My PHP script stops executing when hitting the row containing 'xslt_create()', without saying a word... See code below.
I have no problem using the xml parser (expat.dll) and I've moved the contents of the c:\php\dlls folder to my c:\winnt\system32 folder that is in my system PATH, so it should have anything to do with not finding the 'sablot.dll'. Everything besides the XSLT operations seems to work alright for my system.


  // Create an XSLT processor
  print "This line will get printed...";
  $xsltHandle = xslt_create();
  print "This line WILL NOT get printed...";

  // Perform the transformation
  $html = xslt_process($xsltHandle, 'test.xml', 'test.xsl');

  // Detect errors
  if (!$html) die('XSLT processing error: '.xslt_error($xsltHandle));

  // Destroy the XSLT processor

  // Output the resulting HTML
  echo $html;

Ooops! missed this one.
WIN32 users - Try to uncomment the row in PHP.INI under the "Windows Extensions" section that says "extension=php_xslt.dll".

Restart your server and try again. Worked for me.
