To install wkhtmltopdf on XAMPP, follow these steps:

  1. Download the appropriate version of wkhtmltopdf from the official website: https://wkhtmltopdf.org/downloads.html. Make sure to download the version that matches your operating system.
  2. Extract the downloaded file to a specific directory on your computer.
  3. Open XAMPP and navigate to the "htdocs" directory. This is usually located in the XAMPP installation directory.
  4. Create a new folder inside the "htdocs" directory with a suitable name, such as "wkhtmltopdf".
  5. Copy the contents of the extracted wkhtmltopdf folder into the newly created folder inside the "htdocs" directory.
  6. Open XAMPP and start the Apache server.
  7. Open your preferred web browser and type the following URL in the address bar: "http://localhost/wkhtmltopdf". This should display the wkhtmltopdf homepage if the installation was successful.


Now, you can use wkhtmltopdf with XAMPP to convert HTML files to PDF.
