04-04-2011, 04:50 PM
Here’s a quick how-to for installing ImageMagick and Imagick on Cpanel server. I will cover only the procedure using the Cpanel built-in scripts, although you can also install it the usual way (rpm or source install). ImageMagick is the application for working with images while the Imagick is a PHP extention to modify/create images using the ImageMagick API.


Check first if it’s installed:

Proceed with Installation:

Installation will take a couple minutes as it will install other packages needed by ImageMagick. After the installation, you can check your ImageMagick version:
/usr/bin/convert --version
It will give you something like:
Version: ImageMagick 6.4.8 2009-05-11 Q16 OpenMP http://www.imagemagick.org
Copyright: Copyright (C) 1999-2009 ImageMagick Studio LLC

Go to WHM -> Software -> Module Installers -> PHP Pecl (manage). On the box below “Install a PHP Pecl” enter “imagick” and click “Install Now” button – that’s all.

Restart Apache and check your phpinfo page to see the details of Imagick and ImageMagick as well.


If you decide to uninstall it’s as easy as the installation process:
ImageMagick: /scripts/cleanimagemagick
Imagick: WHM -> Software -> Module Installers -> PHP Pecl (manage). Click on Uninstall button for Imagick.
