Using WordPress 3.4.2 and EWWW Image Optimizer 1.3.6, the debug info shows
jpegtran: OK version: Independent JPEG Group's JPEGTRAN, version 9 13-Jan-2013
optipng: OK version: OptiPNG version 0.7.4
gifsicle: OK version: LCDF Gifsicle 1.68
GD: OK Imagemagick 'convert': OK

Operating System: Linux
When I upload a new 2mb image, it uploads fine and says Reduced by 8.1% (181 KB), Image Size: 2MB, Re-optimize, so all looks like it is working.
If I go to where the image path is from FTP though, I still have a 2MB image in that folder and all the various size ones that wordpress has created for me, there is no new file with a different name like reduced and my original file size remains 2MB
What am I missing here, I dont know if I am just not doing something correctly.
What I would like is if all newly uploaded media gets reduced automatically with your plugin and replaces the original, then all the wordpress variants at different sizes get generated.
For images already in my Media Library I would like to click optimize and for the original file to get replaced with no name alteration to the newly optimized file.
Is this possible.
Just by the way this is hosted on my own server with Hetzner Germany and the PHP Config on that is set as follows
PHP version 5.3.3
max_execution_time: 30 seconds
upload_max_filesize / post_max_size: 16mb
The only other thing that might be causing the issue is possibly the unusually long urls that this particular site is using
