    Hi all,

    i've read many posts about imagemagick. I've installed it on my RHEL 3 + PSA 7.5.4 to use serendipity blog system.

    I've use rpm provided on www.pbone.net


    But php pages are not able to run it. Is there some tips?

    What happens when you run

    convert -version

    at the command line?

    And have you tried installing from source? It is easy.

    wget ftp://ftp.imagemagick.org/pub/ImageMagick/ImageMagick.tar.gz

    tar -xvzf ImageMagick.tar.gz

    cd ImageMagick-(the version you downloaded)



    make install

    And that's it! Try:

    /usr/local/bin/convert -version

    again to see if things have improved.

    Note that I have no idea about how PHP talks to ImageMagic. However, there is an API called MagicWand -- this gets installed when you compile from source as above.

    Also note that the RPM version you may (or may not) have installed already will remain in your system. You may want to remove it with rpm -e (name of the package) so that applications don't use the "old" version or get confused.
