As we said at the beginning, we are glad to help you if you have any questions relating to this application. Let us know, we do our best to assist.

Blank pages can be caused by errors or if your server doesn’t meet the minimum requirements for Ultimate SMS. To see exactly what the issue is, you need to ensure display_errors are set to On in your servers php.ini file and the error_reporting level set to E_All. Add the following lines to your Ultimate app.php file (located on application/config) and revisit the page:

ini_set('display_errors',1);
ini_set('display_startup_errors',1);
error_reporting(-1);

An error message occurring will be shown if it’s a PHP error. Once finished testing, remove the line again from the Ultimate SMS app.php file.

Here is the common reason for this error:

Let’s say you have uploaded your website by login using root in your server but the folder owner must be www-data, so PHP will not be able to write file in root-folder/assets and application/storages folder.
Here is the example command to change folder owner: sudo -R chown www-data:www-data /var/www/advanced-hrm/

 

wkhtmltopdf Problem When Generate PDF:

If you used VPS or Cloud Hosting then just install wkhtmltopdf-amd64 on your system and copy the location link on application snappy configuration. Visit application root folder then go application->config folder. Then you will find a file called snappy.php. Open it.

'pdf' => array(
    'enabled' => true,
    'binary'  => '/usr/local/bin/wkhtmltopdf',
    'timeout' => false,
    'options' => array(),
    'env'     => array(),
),

Replace your wkhtmltopdf-amd64 location with /usr/local/bin/wkhtmltopdf Then It will be OK. 

But If you used Shared Hosting then 
Downloaded the relevant static binary v0.10.0 from here:

http://wkhtmltopdf.org/
 

OR via ssh on my shared host typed the following:

$ wget {relavant url to binary from link above}
$ tar -xvf {filename of above wget'd file}

you'll then have the binary on your host and will be able to run it regardless of if its in the /usr/bin/ folder or not. Then copy the store location of wkhtmltopdf and Replace your wkhtmltopdf-amd64 location with /usr/local/bin/wkhtmltopdf Then It will be OK. 

If you not successful then you may contact with us through our support email akasham67@gmail.com

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/37765698/unable-to-install-wkhtmltopdf-with-patched-qt-in-ubuntu-16-04

if you face any problem with left menu when you scroll; then follow the following instruction:

1) Go to  assests/js folder and Open script.js file. Then Go line number 14 Then you will find this code block:

$('#left-nav .nav-bottom-sec').slimScroll({
   height: '100%',
   size: '4px',
   color: '#999'
});

 

Then remove this code block and replace with this code block:

/*
$('#left-nav .nav-bottom-sec').slimScroll({
   height: '100%',
   size: '4px',
   color: '#999'
});
*/

Then Go to the application/resource/views folder open two files named admin.blade.php and client.blade.php  Then find the following code block:

<main id="wrapper" class="wrapper">

    <div class="top-bar">

Replace with the following code block:

<main id="wrapper" class="wrapper">

    <div class="top-bar clearfix">

After done everything perfectly Hope you can your problem.
