    Hello,

    has anyone successfully upgrading their ImageMagick on a Cpanel box with CentOS 3 ?

    I am trying to install it so we can use the Image::Magick module.

    We got the Image::Magick installed and install the recent ImageMagick from source and install the PerlMagick with it.

    Installed the Perl module Image::Magick via the WHM, with no apparent problems, but when we run any script calling up the Image::Magick module and try to perform any type of image manipulation with it, the Perl script creates a massive core dump file and errors out. The module is installed and it appears that ImageMagick installed from source, but for some reason, all we get is 4-5MB core.* dump file which is unreadable!

    anyone else have this problem and found a cure for it?

    any help would be much appreciated.

    thx's

    It is very likely that ImageMagick was not installed properly on your system. Reinstall the ImageMagick provided by the cPanel. SSH to the server and run: /scripts/installimagemagick

    I've tried that, got the message ImageMagick installed ok but still no luck. each time we execute a perl script with the Image::Magick module, it errors out, and creates a huge core.* dump file which is not readable... some sort of a binary file I think.

    If you have installed ImageMagick with Perl along with the Image::Magick module successfully, let me know and I'd be happy to discussing having you install it properly for us for a reasonable fee. :)

    Hope you maybe able to help.

    Yes, we installed ImageMagick on 4 servers in the past 3 days with MagickWand and other modules. Did you check the log files for any errors including: /var/log/messages

    I can't find anything in the /var/log/message that indicate any problems. all the apache error_log has is the "Premature end of script headers" which doesn't help. I just don't understand why it creates the core.* dump file!

    If you would be interested in fixing this for us, please contact via the PM here or direct email to mickalo@thunder-rain.com I'd really like to get this working properly. I've installed ImageMagick on other servers with no problems like this. Installed it from source, along with the PerlMagick and Image::Magick with total success ... but for some reason I can't get it setup on this server.
