    Hello and congats for your plugin!

    I am trying to install the pngout but i cannot.
    I try to install it automatically… it actually does add the pngout-static file to ewww folder but i always get Pngout was not installed: . Make sure this folder is writable: /home/account/public_html/wp-content/ewww/ messge.

    I have 755 permissions to the folder… even trid with 777 but no success.

    I also tried installing it manually with latest and olders versions too. Still get same message.

    Any clues?

    Best Regards

    Usually that means the pngout builds won’t work on your server, can you please turn on EWWW’s debugging setting and post the debug information from the settings page via pastebin.com?

    Hello and thank you for your quick response.

    Here there is the response from debugging:

    I changed the domain name with the word account.

    Best regards

    Well, that just confirmed what I thought, which is that the pngout binaries are not working on your server.
    If you haven’t already, check the pngout section on this page: https://wordpress.org/plugins/ewww-image-optimizer/installation/

    If nothing there works, I’m afraid it just isn’t possible to get it working on your server. If you really want to squeeze those last few bytes off your images, you can also sign up for the EWWW IO API: https://ewww.io

    Well, thanks again for your response.

    Is there anything I should mention to host provider that should fix this problem? What should i ask them to do/change?

    The only thing I could think of is to find out what linux distribution and version they are running. If it is an older one, perhaps they would be willing to move your account to a newer server.

    Hello again nosilver4u.

    My hosting provider told me they are using CloudLinux Server release 5.11 on this server.

    Plugin Author nosilver4u

    (@nosilver4u)

    I’ve not tested it with CloudLinux. I’ll give it a spin and let you know what I can find out.

    (@nosilver4u)

    Nevermind, just found the Cloudlinux 5.11 install image.

    Ok, I got this one to work on Cloudlinux 5.11: http://static.jonof.id.au/dl/kenutils/pngout-20130221-linux-static.tar.gz

    You’ll want to upload the pngout-static file from the x86_64 folder. If it doesn’t work, post an updated debug log please.

    It’s throwing a permissions error, make sure it is set to executable for all users. Typically, 755 is preferable which equates to these options:
    user: read, write, execute
    group: read, execute
    others: read, execute

    Hello,

    Could you tell me the command lines to the installation of pngout in ubuntu linux?

    Ricardo, It is proprietary software and must be download using the EWWW automatic button, or manually using the instructions on the Installation page. If you have further issues, please start your own thread.

    Its solved now nosilver4u!!!

    Shall i reoptimise images so the png will be optimised?

    Best Regards!

    If you already had optipng working when you did the first round of optimization, then it probably isn’t necessary, unless you really really want to squeeze every last byte out of those images. In that case, check the “force re-optimize” box, and have at it!
