Manually Install ImageMagick On A cPanel Server

If you absolutely must have the latest version, then a manual installation is required, unless you want to consider installing some third-party repositories. To do this, follow the steps below

1. Login to your server via SSH as root and download the latest version:


2. Unpack the downloaded files

tar -xvfz ImageMagick.tar.gz

3. Configure and compile the installation files:

To first check the version number that was installed, just enter ls at the command prompt and you will see the folder with appropriate version number in its name.

cd ImageMagick-6.8.6-7

4. As long as ImageMagick compiled without any errors, install it onto your system:

make install

5. For a quick  check that ImageMagick is installed and running correctly, enter the following:

/usr/local/bin/convert logo: logo.gif

6. For a more advanced check on your ImageMagick installation, run the command below which will perform a full test on the installation and should result in a “all tests passed”.

make check

7. Check the version

/usr/local/bin/convert –version
