Here is a step-by-step instruction on how to install ImageMagic. To install it run the following commands:

 

# mkdir /home/src
 
# cd /home/src
 
# wget ftp://ftp.imagemagick.org/pub/ImageMagick/ImageMagick-6.7.9-0.tar.gz
 
# tar -xzvf ImageMagick-6.7.9-0.tar.gz
 
# cd ImageMagick-6.7.9-0
 
# ./configure
 
# make
 
# make install
 
# cd PerlMagick
 
# perl Makefile.PL
 
# make
 
# make install

 

That should be it, if by any chance you have a problem with a 64 bit OS and WHM can not find imagick then install it manually, use hints below.

 

First, install ImageMagick-devel

 

# yum -y install ImageMagick-devel

 

Assuming ImageMagick-devel is installed, you need to download the Imagick PHP extensions, located here: http://pecl.php.net/package/imagick

 

Latest version, as of this post, is imagick-2.2.0

 

# wget http://pecl.php.net/get/imagick-2.2.0.tgz

 

# tar -zxvf imagick-2.2.0 .tgz

 

while in the home directory (don’t type the quotes)

 

Then type the following commands:

 

# cd imagick-2.2.0
 
# phpize
 
# ./configure
 
# make
 
# make install

 

Now go back into WHM and try to activate imagick again

 

Installation:

 

ImageMagick

 

Check first if it’s installed:

 

# /scripts/checkimagemagick

 

Proceed with Installation:

 

# /scripts/installimagemagick

 

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

 

The following entry will appear:

 

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, then Software, choose Module Installers and select PHP Pecl (manage). On the box below “Install a PHP Pecl” enter “imagick” and click “Install Now” button – that’s all. Check your phpinfo page to see the details of Imagick and ImageMagick as well.

 

Uninstall:

 

If you decide to uninstall it’s as easy as the installation process:

 

ImageMagick:

 

# /scripts/cleanimagemagick

 

Imagick: choose WHM, go to Software , then Module Installers, and pick PHP Pecl (manage). Click on Uninstall button for Imagick.
