Iiif toolkit error upon installation

Hi, I installed the latest IIIF Toolkit plugin available on the Omeka Classic site and the moment I click the install button in Omeka, I receive this error:

The configured PHP path (/bin/php) does not point to a PHP-CLI binary”

Can someone help me understand why this is happening?


Hi there,

As someone who has experienced this a few times and always has to look up the solution, I appreciate the frustration you might be encountering. I cannot right now find the very helpful past forum post that pointed me in the right direction, but I will try to recreate the essential helpful tip that worked for me.

Open up and edit the config.ini file that is contained in: omeka/application/config subdirectory

there, under the section “Background Scripts,” at about lines 165 and 166 you will encounter the following code: jobs.dispatcher.default = “Omeka_Job_Dispatcher_Adapter_Synchronous” and jobs.dispatcher.longRunning = “Omeka_Job_Dispatcher_Adapter_BackgroundProcess”.

Change this second line (jobs.dispatcher.longRunning = “Omeka_Job_Dispatcher_Adapter_BackgroundProcess”) to match the first (ideally commenting out the original line for easy restoration) and it should work. Fingers crossed, and good luck!
