Exif extension not available, admin should disable exif use

Hello!

I've just installed Piwigo! It's very cool and works easily!

But I have this error message on many screens:
"Exif extension not available, admin should disable exif use"

and when you're in image view and click on the Exif Button, you don't get any Exif data.

Is there something I should be configuring, or a plugin I need?

TY!

~ Glenn

Probably you (or your hoster) need to install/enable the PHP exif extension, see https://secure.php.net/manual/en/exif.setup.php

Re: Exif extension not available, admin should disable exif use

thanks, erAck!

The techs at Liquid Web installed it for me.

Unfortunately, the error message persists. I had them double check it and they say it's all good to go.

Any idea if there's some other PHP or Piwigo plugin or configuration necessary?

TY!

Piwigo uses PHP exif module. this need to be installed on your host, then you need to check if module is activated in PHP.ini, then you need to restart the PHP service.
Then you can check php info or you can make some little php files for tests

Code:

<?php
if (function_exists('exif_read_data')) {
    echo "php exif module is installed";
} else {
    echo "php exif module is NOT installed";
}
?>

and

Code:

<?php
$exif_data = exif_read_data('picture.jpg');
print_r($exif_data);
?>

is everything is fine go to Piwigo administration, Local files editor, search the lines where the exif configuration is.

thanks eliz82 & erAck!

I kicked it around with the techs at Liquid Web a few times and we finally got EXIF to work without error messages.

Haha -- although I'm not that crazy about what EXIF data is displayed -- so I guess the next step will be to see how to edit that! :)

The standard tool to read or modify EXIF data is the exfitool: https://owl.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/

I don't think it will be possible to modify EXIF via Piwigo.

no but there are plugins to improve the way Piwigo is displaying them
