I see that the version of ImageMagick and ghostscript changed at the same time this resource was published.

As of this version automatic creation of PDF thumbnails stopped working in WordPress and this is the only thing I can see in the update logs that looks relevant. The yum.log shows the update to this and ImageMagick-devel. WordPress uses these along with Ghostscript. Not sure if it's a version problem or possible a change to how it is installed and linked with Ghostscript.

A roll back using yum history didn't help. But I am also unsure what specific version of each (and dependencies) are needed.

Hello @Damian,

Can you confirm which operating system is installed on the server affected by this issue? You can execute the following command via SSH as a user with root privileges to find this information:

whmapi1 installed_versions packages=0|grep operating_system

Thank you.

Can you check if the solution noted on the following CloudLinux blog post solves the issue you are facing?


Thank you.

Thanks Michael, that version of iproute is already installed (iproute-4.11.0-25.el7.cloudlinux.1.x86_64). Not sure how that package would impact the issue though.

With some assistance from another person I was able to successfully downgrade Imagemagick and ghostscript, reload cagefs and get it all working again. I updated the cPanel support ticket with what was done as the ticket had been handed over to CloudLinux support.

Got following error when run 1st command "yum install ImageMagick ImageMagick-devel". I didn't install anything else beside basic centos 7 + cpanel

Code:
Transaction check error:

Please update and add step 7, after the following text.

Code:
Alternatively, you can use WHM to do the installation with the following steps:
    1. Login to WHM as the root user
    2. Navigate to: Home »Software »Module Installers
    3. Click on the Manage link to the right of "PHP Pecl"
    4. Select the version of PHP from the drop-down and click Apply
    5. Under "Install a PHP Pecl" enter "imagick" (without the quotes)
    6. Click "Install Now"
7. Restart php-fpm service. (without this step, the imagemagick is installed, but not loaded). I lost 5 minutes to figure it out. :)
