Support » Plugin: EWWW Image Optimizer » jpegtran not updating

  • Resolved Android63


    The plugin status page says there’s an update available for jpegtran. When I try to install automatically, the message “jpegtran was successfully installed” is shown even though jpegtran doesn’t update.

    I’m running on 64-bit Ubuntu 12.04 LTS on an Amazon EC2 instance with Nginx. The details are as follows:

    I think you may have just given me a good lead on fixing this issue. I’ve tried it on a server at work that is running the same OS as yours, and it gives me an odd error, so I’ll see what I can figure out.

    OK, great. Let me know if I can do anything to help.

    I’m still working on 1.4.0, and the new binary will be included there, but if you want to get a jump-start on things, I’ve uploaded the new version of jpegtran here:

    Put it in the wp-content/ewww/ folder, and name it jpegtran-custom and see if that works. If you use ftp to upload it, make sure you are in Binary mode, or it will likely not work at all.

    Yes, once I set the ownership and permissions right, it worked.

    Thanks Shane.
