install imagemagick support to your debian/ubuntu server

imagemagick is one of the best library to work with image. recently i have to install it to our production server. here is what i did:

$ apt-get install imagemagick

it downloads the package and all it’s dependences from debian/ubuntu repository, and installed. now i have to install the support of php (as our product running on php)

$ apt-get install php5-imagick

then i restarted the apache server to take effect this new package installation. if your using php4 then the package name should be php4-imagick

$ /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

that’s all 🙂

if you need imagemagick for your ruby , you can install the librmagick-ruby package.

    The newer versions of imagemagick depend on a whole bunch of non-server type packages – a lot of which are X related. I don’t really want this extra baggage on my headless server so I have had to forbid the new version…

    Thanks – I had a tough time figuring out the name of the imagick module and this helped!
