/scripts/installimagemagick install some old version of IM 6.5.4 :(

Is there option I can use to install latest one 6.8.9 or as close to latest ?

Contacted VPS hosting support and they told me thay can't install other than cPanel install:

Support: your present Cpanel support only this version of imagemgick.

Me: So if we now install latest ImageMagick 6.8.9 via SSH, later at cPanel update cPanel will downgrade it back to older v.6.5.4 ?

Support: Cpanel does not allow to install. Even though if we do, we will get compatibility issue.
I am stuck with old version and my scripts don't work as old version do not support options I need for convert :(

Hello,

ImageMagick is RPM based and distributed by your OS. cPanel does not install a custom ImageMagick, so make sure your yum repos are updated and then it should get the latest provided by your OS.
