Thumbnails with 1and1 servers
|Posted: Fri, 2005-12-30 23:36|
For those that have their Gallery2 hosted with 1and1.com, you've probably run into a problem with your thumbnails not generating properly. It took some time but i found a solution that works. You most only use ImageMagick to process images on the server. However, 1and1 does not provide the binaries so you must install them yourself. Below are the instructions provided by 1and1 support to get ImageMagick installed on your server.
To install ImageMagik, first log in to your server with SSH. From the command line
Change into the ImageMagik source directory (this represents the version number as
./configure --prefix=/path/to/your/htdocs/im --without-perl --without-ttf
When these steps are completed ImageMagik will be installed in your home directory.
Hope this helps all that have had similar problems.
