I use Wkhtmltopdf at the moment, and installed it on my shared hosting. I found out that my shared hosting does not support to op exec files.

Is it possible to run Wkhtmltopdf on my shared server in a different way instead of the exec files? Or is it possible to run exec on a remote server or something?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Shared hosts block these sorts of thing for a reason - it's not something they can support. A shared host has dozens if not hundreds/thousands of sites on a single server, all sharing resources. Something with heavy CPU usage like wkhtmltopdf has the potential to screw everyone else on the server. – ceejayoz Oct 20 '14 at 19:22

I just want to help you, I think support this techology, maybe you can contact them. Good luck. :)

share|improve this answer doesn't support running wkhtmltopdf in their "tier" plans. – sports Oct 20 '14 at 19:18
