Configuring Exiftool Keywords

I recently installed Piwigo and have been exploring the options for accessing metadata.  I am familiar Exiftool and so this seemed like a good option.  I therefore installed ExifTools Keywords but I am having some trouble getting it working.  So far I have:

1. Downloaded Exiftool and installed it in the cgi-bin directory of
2. Run Makefile.PL for Exiftool from command line and all is ok.  I also tested exiftool from command line and it worked fine.  Here I used SSH and bash to do these two tests.
3. I installed Exiftool Keywords from manage plugins in Piwigo
4. I added the folowing line to   local/config/     
$conf['exiftool_path'] = '';
Using Local Editor.  I also tried various versions of the path to check it was OK eventually settling on the full path.

My question is what else do I need to do to get exiftool to report the metadata in Piwigo? I must be missing somthing?   I have searched the documentation, forum  and the interenet but found little information to help.



Piwigo version: 2.8.6
PHP version: 5.3.29
MySQL version: 5.6.28-76.1
