"If you have root access to your server, you can install optipng from the standard repositories."
I have access to the root user of my computer, and I'm able to ftp into my website through filezilla. My hosting company is dreamhost.
When "If you have root access to your server..." is mentioned, does that mean the root user of my computer, or the root directory of my account at dreamhost.com?
I'm at a loss with what "install optipng from the standard repositories" actually means.
Can someone just get me started? I should be able to take it from there after I know the first three steps or so of what to do.
my website is http://www.bostondavisbostian.com/.
