Installation

Download Zip

If you open the downloaded zip, you will see a directory structure as below:

\---Resume-PDF-master
    +---docs
    +---htdocs
    \---updates

The application files are in the htdocs directory. Upload the files in this directory to the webroot of your hosting account.

The script must be installed on a top level domain or subdomain. For instance example.com or sub.example.com. Sub-directories like example.com/resume are not supported.

If you want to test on your localhost you have to create a host file entry like resume.test. It will not work on urls like 127.0.0.0/resume.

Set permission

After uploading, make sure all files in the directory resources/wkhtmltopdf are executable (CHMOD 774).

Install script

Open the url where you have installed the script. You should see a screen as follows:

Installation requirements

Follow the installation steps and the script will be installed in the last step.

Troubleshooting

I can't download a PDF

In most cases, this is because of a wrong web server distro configuration. Open the .env file in your webroot and test the different options for the WEB_SERVER configuration.

If your web server distro is not listed, check if it exists in this this list.

Logs

If you run into a 500 or other error, check the logs in storage/logs.

Reinstall

If you want to reinstall the script, just remove the .env file from the webroot. Make sure the .env.example file exists, do not rename it, it will be copied during the installation.
