Install the two items with the following command
yum install -y xorg-x11-fonts-75dpi yum install -y xorg-x11-fonts-Type1
Step 3: Install
Next, download the
wkhtmltopdf RPM file.
After the file has been downloaded, run the command:
rpm -Uvh wkhtmltox-0.12.2.1_linux-centos6-amd64.rpm
Step 4: Testing
And now for the test. Run the command (and make sure that the computer is accessible to internet):
wkhtmltopdf http://www.google.com.ph google.pdf
During the generation, it will show something like this:
Loading pages (1/6) Counting pages (2/6) Resolving links (4/6) Loading headers and footers (5/6) Printing pages (6/6) Done
If the command generates the from the website to PDF file successfully, it is obvious that the
wkhtmltopdf is working.
