WickedPdf error in production

Hello everyone,

I am using rails -v 3.2.8.

I am using wickedpdf to generate pdf. Its working well in my local machine.

But its not working in production server.

ompleted 500 Internal Server Error in 4443ms

RuntimeError (Failed to execute:

“/var/www/apps/staging/shared/bundle/ruby/1.9.1/bin/wkhtmltopdf” -q “file:///tmp/wicked_pdf_5855_0.html” “/tmp/wicked_pdf_generated_file_5855_0.pdf”

Any Idea!

Hi Saravanan,

Try below steps :

1. Download wicked pdf file
if your machine is 64 bit

if your machine is 32 bit
http://wkhtmltopdf.googlecode.com/files/wkhtmltopdf-0.9.9-static-i386.tar.bz2

2. cd /usr/local/bin
extract the zipped file inside /usr/loca/bin folder using command

if your prodcution machine is 32 bit tar -xvjf
wkhtmltopdf-0.9.9-static-i386.tar.bz2
if your machine is 64 bit tar -xvjf wkhtmltopdf-0.9.9-static-amd64.tar.bz2

4. vi project_folder/vendor/plugin/wickedpdf/lib/wicked_pdf.rb
