[How To]Installing Imagick on WHM/Cpanel

by thecoalman » Sat Sep 07, 2019 12:43 pm

Just went through this and since WHM is so popular I thought I would post it. It's not an end all tutorial but what worked for me. Open WHM panel and navigate to Software > Module Installer > PHP Pecl >> Manage

In the text box "Install a PHP PECL" type imagick and click install now. If you get no errors done deal, when you navigate to Software > Module Installer > PHP Pecl it should be listed as installed and this extension should work.

If you get this error which is what occurred for me:

Code: Select all

checking ImageMagick MagickWand API configuration program... checking Testing /usr/local/bin/MagickWand-config... Doesn't exist
checking Testing /usr/bin/MagickWand-config... Doesn't exist
checking Testing /usr/sbin/bin/MagickWand-config... Doesn't exist
checking Testing /opt/bin/MagickWand-config... Doesn't exist
checking Testing /opt/local/bin/MagickWand-config... Doesn't exist
configure: error: not found. Please provide a path to MagickWand-config or Wand-config program.
Go to command line and:

Code: Select all

yum install ImageMagick ImageMagick-devel
Go back to WHM panel and ty installing again.

You are more than welcome to , should probably change it to WHM as it really only applies to WHM. WHM is the control panel for the server and Cpanel accounts. It won't work with Cpanel by itself.
