Tx for responding. Will thread responses....
> Is it possible you have maxed out your server's storage space? Are you hosting this yourself or using a third-party host?
No and no. I installed this server (have run *nix servers since '93 so have experience, gobs, on running them). I have only used 27% of capacity. There is a little less than 1TB of space available, so am definitely not out of space. Also, there are no quotas on the file system. I have other apps that have used more space in their filesystems on this server, so quotas are not an issue.
> As Jeremy said above, there is no limitation within Omeka on the number of files you may upload but individual server settings may limit the total amount of space you have to store everything. It's possible that you've maxed out your storage so you cannot upload any more images.
That is the first thing I observe on these things, primarily since I mount and run these servers myself. I am definitely not maxed out on space. I know there is supposed to be no limitation on space, but that is exactly how it is acting. I can add for instance 150 image files. When I add the 151st image file, it fails. I can delete image file 148, 149 and 150. Then I can upload image file 151, 152 and 153, but image file 154 fails. It seems to hit a threshold. Very strange. I have tried different file extensions meaning .jpg and .jpeg I have tried different files meaning image files, thinking the particular set of images files may be damaged. Nawp. Still fails. I have tried renaming filenames. No go. When I uploaded a different media type as in an mpeg and avi files, it worked.
I looked at the .htaccess and php settings to see if there is some kind of threshold, but nothing jumped out.
> I am confused by the way you have talked about the ImageMagick configuration--it works and its fails.
I have two versions of Omeka 1.2 installed on the same server. Let's call them OmekaInstall1 and OmekaInstall2. When I ran the Settings 'Test' for imagemagick, both tests failed. However, when I uploaded image files into OmekaInstall1 they worked. When I uploaded image files into OmekaInstall2, it failed. That's what I meant.
However, as a last test, I deleted a few image files from OmekaInstall2 and was able to then upload the same number of image files just deleted into OmekaInstall2, but when I tried to add one more image file beyond what the so called limit appeared to be, the upload failed. I think I will make a little video and show what I mean. It is very perplexing.
> You've said in one post: "convert is indeed in /usr/bin and it works."
Yes, it is there and yes, it does work.
> In the next post you write, "I have two installs of Omeka on the same server. Both report 'fail' when I test the Settings. "
Yes, when running Imagemagick manually, it works fine. When I run both OmekaInstall1 and OmekeInstall2 on that I explained are on the same server, at one point OmekaInstall1 worked and OmekaInstall2 failed. But after deleting a few images files, I was able to upload the same number of image files until I hit this seemingly magic limit, and OmekaInstall2 failed.
> Sounds like the path to convert is not correct.
It is correct.
> What is the path that you are testing when it fails? /usr/bin ?
> Try typing "which convert" (without quotation marks) into terminal when you are inside one of your Omeka installations to see its path and then type that in (minus the /convert) to the settings field.
Here is the output:
root@ns2:/home/dh# which convert
So, Imagemagick is working properly. I will make a short video and show you folks what I mean. All I can think is there is something causing a limitation in the number of image files I am able to upload. If it is something in the system environment, I will apologise profusely. Things is, I am receiving no error output in the apache logs, Omeka is not spitting out any error, and I cannot find a logical explanation for why I can upload for instance, 150 image files, but it failed on the 151st image file. Yet I can delete files 148, 148 and 150, then upload 151, 152 and 153, but when I try 154, it fails. It is not Imagemagick.
I will also revert to another server and see if the problem persists. I will report that result. If it doesn't, then it has to be a system environmental problem. It is does, then I would look to Omeka. Will let you know.
Thank you for responding...
