I'm having an issue with ImageMagick that's neatly summarised by this topic.
Although ImageMagick is installed and configured, Omeka's attempts to use it are thwarted by the open_basedir setting. But as far as I can see (and our hosting company confirms it), the problem isn't with calling ImageMagick itself; rather, it's with the fail-safe checks surrounding it, which use realpath and file_exists to access a folder beyond the site root and thereby (quite rightly, I would've thought) fall foul of the security settings.
Are those checks actually necessary? Does anyone have any suggestions, beyond resorting to hacking?
Many thanks for your help.
