    I am a user of a hosting company that uses cPanel on their servers. I am trying to use PERLMagick and it seems that they are having a problem installing it (or they say)

    The version of cPanel is 10.8.2-RELEASE 83

    When I SSH into my account and run convert -version I get back the following:

    "ImageMagick 5.5.6 04/01/03 Q16 http://www.imagemagick.org
    Copyright: Copyright (C) 2003 ImageMagick Studio LLC"

    When I search the PERLs page from cpanel the only imagemagick listed is " GD::SecurityImage::Magick"

    I asked them to install imagemagick or perlmagick, which ever is needed so I can run a script that creates thumbnails. I asked them if we could upgrade imagemagick and they told me that they could not until cPanel released a stable version of the newest one. Is there a version that is stable and new that would have all of this or what. I really need the help.

    Or is there a way I can install them in my local directory to use for just my site.

    Here is the server information provided by the cPanel main page.

    I suggst you find a different hosting company. We installed ImageMagick on many servers and do not have any problems. The latest version we installed on our servers is: ImageMagick-6.2.7-5.

    I would like to but they have been good to our non-profit, in fact they donated the server and domain for the first two years we had it and I can't really beat a price of $100 per year for 800 megs of space and 35 gigs of transfer per month.

    But you are saying that 6.2.7-5 would be considered a stable version for the current cPanel?
