  • Resolved xhoun


    Hi, i am having a hard time figuring out on how to install these 3: jpegtran, optipng, gifsicle. I don’t understand the Copy executable, Copy binary .
    What I did, is that I copy the
    -> jpegtran-linux,optipng-linux, gifsicle-linux and paste it to the path: /wp-content/ewww, but doesn’t seem to work.

    Can you instruct me, step by step on how to install these?

    And how to enable the exec()?

    You need to ask whoever runs your web server to enable exec(), or assist you in doing so. Once you’ve done that (if it still isn’t working properly) delete the contents of the wp-content/ewww/ folder, and let the plugin install the tools itself.

    If your webhost will not enable exec(), please let us know who they are so that this post will serve as a reference for others using the same webhost.

    My teammates also don’t know how to enable the exec() in the web server, can you help me? We are using knownhost.

    Our leader had already enable the exec() and we can now install the jpegtran, optipng, gifsicle. Anyhow, thanks for the respond 🙂
