No special software is necessary on your web server. The PDF Forms Filler for CF7 plugin and the PDF Forms Filler for WPForms plugin both use WordPress core functions and the Pdf.Ninja web API to fill PDF forms (subscription is necessary for professional usage). However, if you need all filling to be done directly on your web server, the Enterprise Extension plugin is also available.
