According to php.net, if you've installed PHP5 (which I assume is the
case, since you used Yum to install it), you should not be using the
pdf_new() function, but instead use the OO version:

$pdf = new pdflib();

All this assumes that the PDFLib extension is actually installed. The
documentation at php.net is a little confusing about whether this is an
actual extension or not. Personally, I just install the add-on for this.
