    Dear support and community,

    I have installed imagemagick using /scripts/checkimagemagick and saq that about 40 other packages were isntalled with it.
    So I would like to unistall imagemagick and all other packages.
    I tried /scripts/cleanimagemagick but instead of uninstalling imagemagick it istalles it again. After running /scripts/cleanimagemagick when I do /usr/bin/convert --version I get:
    Version: ImageMagick 6.4.8 2009-09-10 Q16 OpenMP http://www.imagemagick.org
    Copyright: Copyright (C) 1999-2009 ImageMagick Studio LLC

    and with /scripts/checkimagemagick I get: ok

    I suppose that /scripts/cleanimagemagick didn't uninstall the imagemagick, so I ask You how to uninstall it with all the dependecies and clean my dedicated web server??

    Uninstall Imagemagick

    Hello,

    After reading your post I can say that you would probably just want to remove it via yum. If you do not know the package name you can look it up with:
    rpm -qa | grep imagemagick

    and that should give you a list.

    Then you can remove them using the "rpm -e" function.

    I hope that helps, please feel free to ask if you have any other questions.

    Thank you,
    Matthew Curry

    Uninstall Imagemagick

    Thank You for answering.
    If I use yum to query for imagemagick it would also list all those other packages which came with imagemagick like those for Xwindows and GUI interface and all other packageswhich I don't need.
    Do I have then to uninstall them one by one or is yum going to take care for them?

    thnx

    Using yum it will display all the list of packages which are dependent to imagemagic and ask for the confirmation to remove. Once you remove it all the listed packages will get deleted.

    Not able to solve it

    Dear support,

    when I run yum remove or yum erase ImageMagick nothing is deleted!
    Whe I run query searching for ImageMagick rpm package nothing is displayed.
    But when I do /usr/bin/convert --version I get:
    Version: ImageMagick 6.4.8 2009-09-10 Q16 OpenMP http://www.imagemagick.org
    Copyright: Copyright (C) 1999-2009 ImageMagick Studio LLC

    and with /scripts/checkimagemagick I get: ok
    When I run deplist on ImageMagick I get a lot of packages.
    I don't know what went worng using as decribed /scripts/installimagemagick ???
    I don't know why it does not remove using /scripts/cleanimagemagick ???
    So I ask You:
    How can I clean my server from imagemagick and all packages that came using /scripts/installimagemagick without compromising other services??

    Hope You are going to answer ASAP because my server is getting high cpu load after installing ImageMagick and I have problems with it.

    If you are getting high cpu load, it has nothing to do with installing ImageMagick or it's dependencies, that much I can tell you for certain!

    You have some other issue going on with your server!

    If you need assistance tracking down the real cause of your loading issues and how to resolve those problems, I can probably help you with that. ;)

    I can confirm this problem, the /scripts/cleanimagemagick doesn't does what it should do, and this issue is 1 year old for sure, I just remembered that now a year ago when I was playing on a new box I got the same problem, and now again .. playing with a new VPS, with a newwer version of WHM (cPanel 11.25.0-R42399 - WHM 11.25.0 - X 3.9) and still have the same problem.

    I think I will send a ticket to cPanel support team, they have been very quick and helpfull in the past.

    Old thread I know but ran across it and wanted to point out that ImageMagick installed by /scripts/installimagemagick is not using RPM's.

    Would be nice if the /scripts/cleanimagemagick script properly removed anything installed by the installimagemagick script.

    Then again it would also be nice if the installimagemagick script used the current release of ImageMagick or at least one close to current.
    Current is 6.6.1 and it installs 6.4.8 which is from 2008-12-19.
