Installing Imagick on cPanel CentOS 7

The ImageMagick toolkit allows users to display, create, convert, modify, and edit raster images for free and is openly available on multiple platforms.

To install imagick we must first access the server over SSH:

ssh root@server-ip

Next, run the following command to install the imagick service:

yum install ImageMagick ImageMagick-devel

Finally, we need to install the imagick PHP module to allow our websites or applications to connect with it.

Since cPanel now has a PHP Selector, this command will install the imagick PHP module for every installed PHP version:

for phpver in $(whmapi1 php_get_installed_versions|grep -oE '\bea-php.*') ; do
/opt/cpanel/"$phpver"/root/usr/bin/pecl install imagick


Here is an example of the output.

Hit enter when asked:
Please provide the prefix of ImageMagick installation [autodetect] :

Starting to download imagick-3.5.1.tgz (301,411 bytes)
.............................................................done: 301,411 bytes

Please provide the prefix of ImageMagick installation [autodetect] :

That’s it!
