Image gallery

1. Installation

1.1. ImageMagick

ImageMagick is used for improving performance when scaling images and can be installed as part of the Intrexx setup. You can install ImageMagick afterwards at any time when you modify the Intrexx installation via the system settings. Click on the link Click here to see important installation notices and then, in the second dialog, on the link to install it. Follow the instructions in the installation wizard from ImageMagick.

1.2. IIS-settings

If you use an IIS web server, you can only upload and download smaller files in the browser to begin with. You therefore need to adjust the file size limitations (size specified in bytes) if required. This is achieved as follows:

Open the Computer Management and there, "Services and Applications". In the Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager, please adjust the "ASP Limit Properties":

For uploads: Maximum Requesting Entity Body Limit
For downloads: Response Buffering Limit

The changes take effect without restarting the WWW Publishing Service. In addition to these settings, that enable file transfers up to about 60MB, larger file transfers can also be enabled with another setting. This is done by entering a corresponding byte value in the ASP Limit Properties and then in the file "applicationHost.config". Open the following folder as the Administrator:

c:\windows\system32\inetsrv

Then perform the following command line, for example for 100MB:
Appcmd set config /section:requestfiltering/requestlimits.maxallowedcontentlength:100000000
