Working with Omeka Classic

Here are a few tips and tricks that can help make sure you get the most out of the Omeka software.


Omeka requires the ImageMagick library in order to resize and generate thumbnails for your images. BuffsCreate provides ImageMagic for all accounts, but occasionally you will need to manually enter the server path to the utility. The setting for this is located under the Settings > General tab and the path to ImageMagick is /usr/bin



Some plugins including CSV Import and Neatline may need to execute code using the command-line version of PHP. If your plugin requires this it can be enabled by editing the config.ini file in your File Manager under application>config.

Navigate to the line that reads:

background.php.path = “”

Change it to the following:

background.php.path = "/usr/bin/php-cli"
