Install ImageMagick on cPanel with EasyApache 4

This post will help you to install ImageMagick on cPanel with EasyApache 4. ImageMagick is mainly used to create, edit and convert bitmap images. It supports a variety of image formats. Please click here to get the supported image formats.

The ImageMagick can be installed using a simple cPanel script (/scripts/installimagemagick) in the older version of cPanel, but in newer versions of cPanel with EasyApache 4 uses another method to install it. Please check it below:

yum install ImageMagick-devel ImageMagick-c++-devel ImageMagick-perl

Once the installation is over, run the following command to verify if it is working

/usr/bin/convert --version

Install ImageMagick PHP extension on cPanel with EasyApache 4

/opt/cpanel/ea-php56/root/usr/bin/pecl install imagick

Add ImageMagick extension into the PHP 5.6 configuration file to load the module.

vim /opt/cpanel/ea-php56/root/etc/php.ini

Add the following into it:

Restart the web server

service httpd restart

Then verify the installation

/opt/cpanel/ea-php56/root/usr/bin/php -m | grep imagick

Note: If you would like to enable ImageMagick PHP module on PHP 7.0, you just need to update the correct binary paths on the above installation.

/opt/cpanel/ea-php56/root/usr/bin/pecl to /opt/cpanel/ea-php70/root/usr/bin/pecl
/opt/cpanel/ea-php56/root/etc/php.ini to /opt/cpanel/ea-php70/root/etc/php.ini
/opt/cpanel/ea-php56/root/usr/bin/php to /opt/cpanel/ea-php70/root/usr/bin/php

If you would like to enable the ImageMagick PHP module on the other PHP versions available on EasyApache 4, please do the same by changing the correct binary path.
