For Managed Dedicated Servers
Learn how to install the latest version of ImageMagick on the managed server.
Please note: An older version of ImageMagick is pre-installed on the managed servers. The installation is only necessary if you are dependent on the latest version.
ImageMagick is a library that allows PHP programs to manipulate graphics, for example. ImageMagick can handle up to 100 different graphic formats, including.jpg,.png,.tif etc.
Log in to your managed server via SSH.
Download the source code of ImageMagick with the command wget. Example:
Unpack the archive with the following command:
tar xfvz ImageMagick.tar.gz
Use the cd command to switch to the directory with the source code, here is an example:
Use the pwd command to display the absolute path of the directory. This will be needed later for the installation, the output looks like this:
Use the ./configure command to prepare the program for compilation. Since you do not have access rights to the directory specified in the script, use the --prefix option to install ImageMagick to a subdirectory of your home directory. Here is an example of entering the./configure command:
Enter the command make. If there is no error message, enter the command make install at the next prompt.
The installation is complete, you can now access the most frequently used functions of ImageMagick in your scripts by calling /ImageMagick/bin/convert.
