Realpath(): SAFE MODE Restriction in effect

Hello, I am adding a path for ImageMagick to Omeka. I got this path from the provider (it is “/usr/bin/” ).

I get the following error message using this path. My provider will not change the settings of the Safe Mode.
The error message that I get is as follows:

Warning: realpath(): SAFE MODE Restriction in effect. The script whose uid is 186029 is not allowed to access /usr/bin owned by uid 0 in /var/www/domains/ on line 148

Is there anything that I can do to get this to work?
Many thanks in advance.

Your best bet is probably to switch to the GD derivative strategy by adding the following line in application/config/config.ini:

fileDerivatives.strategy = "Omeka_File_Derivative_Strategy_GD"

This just skips the usage of ImageMagick entirely. The imagick extension is another possible solution (it uses ImageMagick but not through the command line), but a host that has unchangable safe mode settings probably doesn’t have imagick installed.
