Can I please ask somone to clarify something.
I installed 2 copies of Piwigo on the same server in the same domain (one in 'piwigo' directory, one in 'photos' directory).
Admin home shows one is using 'Graphics Library: External ImageMagick 6.2.8', the other is using 'Graphics Library: GD bundled (2.0.34 compatible)'.
I have 2 questions:
- What would have made the 2 installations install with different Graphics Libraries on the same server?
- To try changing the GD install to use IM I put this in the 'local config' using the LocalFiles Editor - '$conf['graphics_library'] = 'ext_imagick';' - but the admin page still reports using GD. Why? What did I miss?
As no one answered my questions and the adding of '$conf['graphics_library'] = 'ext_imagick'; to the 'local/config' did not enforce the use of IM, I tried to alter the main config file manually and changed the $conf['graphics_library'] = 'auto'; to $conf['graphics_library'] = 'ext_imagick';
However the Admin page still shows
Operating system: Linux
PHP: 5.3.10 (Show info) [2012-07-13 15:44:53]
mysql: 5.1.63-cll [2012-07-13 09:44:53]
Graphics Library: GD bundled (2.0.34 compatible)
Can someone please explain why IM is not being used in this installation when IM is 'automatically' used in another installation in a different directory on the same server.
