[TYPO3-english] Images not created in uploads directory

Hello, thanks for your reply.

My hoster replied that they made complete upgrade of PHP, apache, MySQL 
and whole system.

I checked directory permissions and all of them are writeable.

ImageMagick software is not installed on the server and Typo3 is 
complaining about disabled exec() function. However exec() was never 
permitted and imagemagick was never installed on this server. GDLib is 
available. It was working without IM and exec() until now.

Is IM essntial for Typo3 functionality? How to configure typo3 to run on 
systems without exec() allowed? Let's say that I don't want any images 
processing and i will upload images sized correctly, is IM necessary than?

Best regards Stanislav Rusnak
