littleutils Installed, but plugin says it is not. (4 posts)

    I managed to install littleutils on my CENTOS 5.7 x86_64 server via ssh thanks to your instructions that i adapted for my system.

    But the WordPress plugin still says littutils is missing:
    "CW Image Optimizer requires littleutils. You are missing: opt-png, opt-jpg, opt-gif."

    Is there a way for me to test the proper functioning of littleutils via ssh ?

    Thanks a lot, the plugin looks very promising.

    This is a server configuration issue. Your web user doesn't have permissions to determine if littleutils is installed. You can go to the plugin options and disable the check.

    If it isn't working after disabling the check, then your web user doesn't have access to the binaries and you'll need to link them to a place where the web user can access them using commands like these:

    ln -s /usr/local/bin/opt-jpg /usr/bin/opt-jpg
    ln -s /usr/local/bin/opt-png /usr/bin/opt-png
    ln -s /usr/local/bin/opt-gif /usr/bin/opt-gif
    ln -s /usr/local/bin/tempname /usr/bin/tempname
    ln -s /usr/local/bin/imagsize /usr/bin/imagsize
    ln -s /usr/local/bin/gifsicle /usr/bin/gifsicle
    ln -s /usr/local/bin/pngcrush /usr/bin/pngcrush
    ln -s /usr/local/bin/pngrecolor /usr/bin/pngrecolor
    ln -s /usr/local/bin/pngstrip /usr/bin/pngstrip
