Fork me on GitHub


  • PHP version 5.2.0 or higher
  • PHP extension php_zip enabled *
  • PHP extension php_xml enabled
  • PHP extension php_gd2 enabled (if not compiled in)

All part of the PHP package (zip) on, should be enabled in php.ini

*) php_zip is only needed by PHPExcel_Reader_Excel2007, PHPExcel_Writer_Excel2007, PHPExcel_Reader_OOCalc.
In other words, if you need PHPExcel to handle .xlsx or .ods files you will need the zip extension, but otherwise not.
