View Full Version : ImageMagick installation for Windows

I'm trying to make sure I can get all the prereqs in place before buying.

In your instructions you say download the binaries and "uncompress to a folder on your server, and configure config-inc.php"

BUT... The link provided links to an .exe installer. So, I can run the installer locally, but not on the Web server (shared server). WHat are the binaries needed to be on the server?

If you do not own your windows server chances are you can not install it.

Most people on shared hosts with windows must run gd unless their host installs imagemagick

If you run the phpinfo file and see gd installed you should be all set to be able to install Photopost

Well, PHPinfo doesn't even mention GD so it doesn't look like that's an option for me.

You would need to contact your host and either see if they have Imagemagick set up properly or see if they have any servers that you can transfer to that have GD

Given the permission issues with windows servers you or I could not work on the server directly as in a linux server to install any necessary components.
