I chmodded everything that the instructions stated:
images (chmod 755)
uploads (chmod 777)
help (chmod 755)
data (chmod 777)
1 (chmod 777)
2 (chmod 777)
500 (chmod 777)
languages (chmod 755) (all subdirectories, too)
english (chmod 755)
Though I run an older version and don't have a 1,2 or 500 directory in my data directory.
Also, where in telnet do I type the "make clean" command and what exactly does it do? I don't know much about telnet/ssh and to get them installed I was basically only following instructions. When I installed the 6.1.5 version I followed the instructions here: http://www.imagemagick.org/www/QuickStart.html
but it didn't appear to work, because when I ran locate mogrify it didn't give any results. When I tried to use the 6.1.5 files but the instructions here at photopost, it gave an error when I ran this command:
./configure --enable-lzw=yes --enable-shared=yes --disable-static --without-perl
A configure folder/file didn't exist type of error. I didn't know how else to proceed so, dispite the instructions saying make sure to uninstall and me trying to uninstall it from the beginning and it not appearing to have uninstalled I went ahead with the installation of 5.3.8
Can you please tell me how I should proceed?
