Image Magick is an opensource application that let’s you create, change, modify and convert images. From resizing, rotating to creating and splitting PDF’s, Image Magick is extremely versatile and very useful for your application.
You cannot install Image Magick from the EasyApache4 wizard in WHM.
- A user with ROOT access or sudo terminal privileges
- A server running WHM (for this particular case)
- Approximately 500MB of available diskspace
Install the OS Package
Start off by making sure you have PACKAGE installed. Issues the following at the terminal to install:
yum install pcre-devel
Next we install the Image Magick base package along with it’s developer companion package. Issue the following at the shell terminal
yum install ImageMagick ImageMagick-devel
Install the PHP package
Now that we’ve installed the OS package of ImageMagick we need to install the PHP package so that you can use it via PHP. We’ll install the package via CLI, so run the following commands for every version of PHP you have installed
PHP version 5.6 /opt/cpanel/ea-php56/root/usr/bin/pecl install imagick PHP version 7.0 /opt/cpanel/ea-php70/root/usr/bin/pecl install imagick PHP version 7.1 /opt/cpanel/ea-php71/root/usr/bin/pecl install imagick PHP version 7.2 /opt/cpanel/ea-php72/root/usr/bin/pecl install imagick PHP version 7.3 /opt/cpanel/ea-php73/root/usr/bin/pecl install imagick PHP version 7.4 /opt/cpanel/ea-php74/root/usr/bin/pecl install imagick
Finally restart Apache from WHM and you’re done!
