On the Tsohost Cloud you can now use wkhtmltopdf and wkhtmltoimage command lines. These utilities turn a web page (including css and images) into a PDF or image respectively.

In your script run: 

<?php

shell_exec(“/usr/bin/wkhtmltopdf enter URL enterfilename.pdf”);

?>

 for example

<?php

shell_exec(“/usr/bin/wkhtmltopdf http://www.tsohost.com Tsohost.pdf”);

?>

If you are using a CMS where this utility is bundled, the above example won’t run due to grsec. To get this to work simply update the path to use /usr/bin/wkhtmltopdf
