Title: exif_read_data fatal error
Post by: Hanna. on November 30, 2017, 02:51:45 am
I get this fatal error on exif_read_data when I try to upload images in Coppermine http://kristincavallaridaily.com/gallery,

I tried to find help, forums say "exif_read_data is a standard PHP function available form PHP 4 onwards. Please check with your host why this function is not available. "

Is there anything I can do myself to solve this?

Update, my host says "addtional extensions can be only used by business customers with business SLA.
we dont offer extension installation for private customers and if its not related to our cloud service"

So then, what are my options to fix this on my own? I can't live without being able to upload images through my coppermine you guys! Help please!

Seems the link you provide above is not working, or your server has crashed. Can you check and re-post

In addition, what version of PHP is your server using?

Not a very friendly host ... I would consider looking for another.

Are you able to edit files?

In the CPG file include/picmgmt.inc.php, on line 51, change
Code: [Select]
if (isset($CONFIG['autorient']) && $CONFIG['autorient'] == 1) {to
Code: [Select]
if (false && isset($CONFIG['autorient']) && $CONFIG['autorient'] == 1) {See if that works for you. You will not get your uploaded files automatically oriented for you.

It would seem that your ISP is Netrouting Sweden. And I would assume that you are subscribed to their lowest cost VPS package. If that is the case, then the EXIF php extension should be installable by you (or a helper). It would seem that it is just that your ISP is not going to do it for you.

Great! If you replace include/picmgmt.inc.php with this one, you should get the automatic image orientation function back. The change will become a part of new releases.
