I was having issues with my Zen install not being able to handle large images, so I read around and decided to move image cache’ing over to ImageMagick, instead of the GD library. This is what you need to do to install/enble ImageMagick on your cPanel server :
You’ll need to be logged in as root on your VPS/Server :
1. Log into your server as root
2. Create a new directory as below :
3. cd /home/cpimins
4. wget http://layer1.cpanel.net/magick.tar.gz
5. tar zxvf magick.tar.gz
6. cd magick
7. /scripts/installrpm ImageMagick
8. /scripts/installrpm ImageMagick-devel
9. sh ./install
Now we need to get the module for PHP installed :
Log into WHM >> Software >> Module Installers >> PHP Pecl and install imagick to get it binding to PHP properly.
After you do that, restart HTTPD/Apache service and you’re golden!
known issue with transferred domains :
If you do not see this in your php.ini file, or it not functioning properly, then you should go to the directory of the issue’d domain example : /home/domainuser/ and rename php.ini to php.ini.bak
