View Full Version : Trouble with ImageMagic
February 10th, 2006, 11:45 AM
I have a new install of PP. I set up my gallery with GD 1 as that is installed on my dedicated server. I tried ImageMagic and it didn't work. So, I did a locate command on mogrify and found it at usr/bin/morgiry. So after changing that option in config_inc.php then Imagemagic worked and it made much better looking thumbs than GD1.
But it won't rotate images. It fails every time. with an error message like this:
Error rotating image!!
Error code: 218
/usr/bin/mogrify -rotate 270
So I went back to GD1 and it was able to rotate images but the thumbs are grainy looking. So I went back to Imagemagic.
Is there some way to get IM to work on rotating photos?

I am having the same problem,
My hosting provider (hostgator.com) says they have it, and I verified.
I dont have ssh access so I wrote a script that does:
which mogrify >> /home/user/output.txt
and it sure enough says:
But during the install, it fails and says it cant find mogrify.
I also had another problem with Esvon classifieds where it needed convert
(part of ImageMagic) and HostGator support said it is in /usr/bin
But the install failed??!?!
I will be investigating this and let you know if I come up with anythnig.

That points to a bad Imagemagick install I would suggest it be reinstalled. here is instructions

Thanks for the quick response!
So, on the requirements page it says you can install onto shared accounts?
Is there some way of doing that that I dont know about with console (ssh access?)
Please do tell!

No we or you can not install it without SSH access. You must have SSH access and use of the GCC compiler since it is a program that requires compiling

might of replies to a wrong post, what does error code 1 mean in regards to this specifically:
Error creating resized original!
"/usr/bin/mogrify" -quality 70 -geometry 250x166 '/home/outlaw/public_html/classifieds/data/3/large/17.jpg'
Error code: 1

My problem isn't a bad install of IM. IM is working to do everything except rotating images.
What can I do to fix this. This was the content of my original question.

This my response was to reinstall Imagemagick based on the instructions given.
We can debate here back and forth but since Imagemagick is a compiled server program the only way to fix anything is to reinstall. I did link the instructions above.
