I'm trying to create multiple pdfs from one base pdf using records from a database. I'm looking to do this from forms on a site, so I'm also hoping someone knows of a good service to use where this is possible. My first idea is to use AWS and see if I can get an instance setup with Acrobat in order to do this. I'm not quite sure if this is the route I should be going, so I'm open to any suggestions as well.

If you want to do it on a server then using Acrobat is out of the question, both technically and legally.

I would recommend using a stand-alone application, and then calling it from a web script (like PHP or ASP or something like that).

Acrobat is a single user interactive tool, with server use forbidden in EULA, so I don’t think use under AWS is going to fly. Adobe's PDF Library, licensed by Datalogics, might be applicable.

Yeah, I had no idea how all that worked or if there was a service available (or what that service would be called), lol. Basically, I'm looking to have php fill out a pdf and save it as another instance so it can be uploaded via another api (that only accepts pdfs). Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
