You don't convert php files you can create a php by texteditor or notepad.

convert HTML to PDF.

It means that you it's has to have a html file and convert it to PDF:

For example you convert this webpage called pdf.html and you convert it to pdf.pdf

This is a link about converting html to pdf

http://pdfcrowd.com/

or this:

http://www.html-to-pdf.net/free-online-pdf-converter.aspx

Portable Document Format (PDF) files are adobe files

It's this:

To open a pdf file you need to download this:

http://get.adobe.com/reader/

I think you are confused about converting files. PHP files can't be converted, you need to write out the code. Regardin about the database you also need a mysql query to get the data from the database. There's no software that can convert or write php & mysql codes.

I feel you need to touch up on these 2 subject which is php and mysql.

Here is couple of links that you can take a look and understand what I just mention:

This is php:

http://www.w3schools.com/php/default.asp

http://www.tizag.com/phpT/

and this mysql:

http://www.w3schools.com/sql/default.asp

http://www.tizag.com/mysqlTutorial/

Once you figure out the code then you can fetch the data from the database.
