Installing magickwand for PHP


Not sure if this is a virtualmin question specifally, but does anyone know if there is an easy way to install ImageMagick + magickwand via Virtualmin/webmin?


I tried installing it manually, but it’s an absolute pain. Basically I have it installed now but it’s not configured correctly. Any call to it results in a blank screen.

The issue might be that PHP needs to be re-compiled, but I don’t know how to do that. Is it possible to reload or recompile PHP from within vm?


Mmm, looking at the install instructions, I’m not sure that there’s going to be a good way to do that through Virtualmin, it looks like an involved app to get working.

Once you do get it working, part of the issue is going to be keeping it up to date – anytime a new PHP version comes out, you’re going to have to recompile that extension in order to be able to upgrade PHP.

So, it can work, but as you said, will probably be a pain :slight_smile:

Regarding the blank screen you’re getting – are you seeing any errors in the error_log for that domain?
