Dont need support, but more of a general info Q..

Post by m3zzr » Wed Jul 05, 2006 5:49 pm

I currantly have phpbb3 on a subdomain, and one of the techies at my host is looking into it as well.

Can anyone tell me what the imagemagik does regards attachments.... from what I can gather it is used to create thumbnails, and resize any images that are uploaded with a post.

However, the server my board is on, does not have imagemagik installed... only GD2, but it seems to resize and create thumbs... so does phpbb3 use GD1/2 if it doesnt find imagemagik?

imagemagick performs thumbnailing and resizing if it is available, GD is used instead if imagemagick is unavailable.
