On the previous post, the tutorial is almost the same, but this is for CentOS 7.0.
This tutorial intends for the people who, at least, have knowledge in CentOS.
Step 1: Preparation
Login to your CentOS machine. Make sure that you have
root access. It is up to you on how you gain a root access by logging in directly as
root user or do an
su - command.
Step 2: Install Dependencies
Now that I mentioned it, there are two items needed in order to install the
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.
As of the published date, there is no 32-bit version of the said tool available for download. After the file has been downloaded, run the command:
rpm -Uvh wkhtmltox-0.12.2.1_linux-centos7-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, again, it is obvious that the
wkhtmltopdf is working.
When the latest version of
wkhtmltopdf is available, change the version number accordingly.
Whoa! Thanks to the comments, which are already more than a month old (I apologize for very sluggish replies, am caught on the realities of my life), I changed the URL of the host to the new one.
