Pdfcrowd Error: 1 - What does this mean?

I'm looping through an array of URLs, to create PDFs of them, but after number three, I get the following error: "Pdfcrowd Error: 1", but I can't seem to figure out what this means?

I have no idea what this could mean, the service does not return such error message. Please could you post your API integration code so we can take a look at it?

The line that dumps that error "message" is the following:

} catch(PdfcrowdException $e) {
	die('Pdfcrowd Error: ' . $e->getMessage());

So indeed it's a message from Pdfcrowd as far as I can see. I haven't managed to reproduce the error with a status code, so hard to know why.

This indeed looks like a bug on our end. Any chance you could post the HTML code or the URL that gives you this error? Do you use headers or footers?

You have to authenticate using your username and API key. You can find your API key on your account page.
