    What is the correct way to upgrade image magick on a centos 7 server with cpanel/whm?

    I checked installed versions and they are old:

    Code:
    convert -version
    Version: ImageMagick 6.7.8-9 2016-06-16 Q16 http://www.imagemagick.org
    Copyright: Copyright (C) 1999-2012 ImageMagick Studio LLC
    Features: OpenMP
    
    Current version at imagemagick.org is 7.08

    I tried using yum and it says no packages are marked for update.

    There is an rpm at Download @ ImageMagick for Centos 7.1, my server has CentOS 7.5 so that would apply.

    I just want to get it updated the right way and not mess it up.

    Thanks.

    Hi @veronicabend

    If you ran
    Code:
    yum check-update ImageMagick
    and got no results then there's no update for the package. Furthermore cPanel initiates a yum update during maintenance updates and pending you don't have it excluded from yum updates should be updated automatically.

    As far as what's available in the repository the CentOS base for your version of CentOS has the latest version they have available. The same is present on my server:

    Code:
    # rpm -qa |grep ImageMagick
    ImageMagick-6.7.8.9-15.el7_2.x86_64
    It may be that the version isn't stable yet or CentOS base hasn't added it yet but none the less if you want to use yum you'll need to wait.


    Thanks!
