Please describe your problem. I need help with ImageMagick. Having spent hours trying to work out what to put into the "ImageMagick path:" (APC, General, Attachment Settings) I came to the conclusion that the path doesn't exist in the open DIR. I then emailed the Host to ask them about it. Their reaponse was "You don't have access to call imagick via /usr/bin/convert but you have access instead to the imagick php module which you'd need to use instead". At this point I am lost.

I have run a Image Magick check, being "system("convert -version");" and it tells me the version is "ImageMagick 6.7.2-7 2017-03-22 Q16". I also ran a more detailed check and it lists all the possible commands, of which there are thousands.

If I try the extension "ftc2 AutoResize v1.0.3" the log tells me "ImageMagick not installed. install it and make sure phpBB is configured with its correct path". So I am guessing here that this means mt forum doesn't know that ImageMagick is installed, or is it the Extension that is incorrect?

Does anyone know a solution for this? The ImageMagick module is obviously installed on the server, but how do I tell phpBB3 where it is?

phpBB only support imagemagick by directly calling the binary, it doesn't support using the php module for imagemagick. If your host doesn't provide access to the binary you won't be able to use imagemagick.

Thanks for the info Paul.

You would know if it is possible to resize attached images using GD? I have been searching but not found anything of use. Many of the people using the forum bearly know how to turn a PC on, let alone resize an image.
