    Hi everyone. I need help installing ImageMagick on my Linux web host's server.

    I have read through the docs on their site (I haven't really installed a UNIX program before), but I don't know WHERE I should install ImageMagick to or what I should set all those config variables to.

    Any help would be appreciated
    Thanks everybody.

    Can you install rpm's on your server RedHat Package Management? That is the easiest way to do it. I tried compiling my own version but I gave up after a few hours.
    Please don't PM me with questions.

    I'm not sure. I'm supposedly on a RedHat Linux server. I have telnet access, so I could try, right?

    Yes try uploading it and then doing rpm -i IMageMagickfilename


    Chances are you need to have root access to do it and if you are on a shared server you probably won't be able to. Your hosting co. won't put it on, start looking for a new host, is my advice!

    Okay, at the bash$ prompt, I typed in:
    rpm -i ImageMagick-5.2.7-1.src.rpm

    It returned:
    cannot write to /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES

    Is the error because of the fact that that isn't my directory? My home directory is /home/dcsonic

    Or is the error just because I don't have root access? Thanks.

    It is because you don't have root access, did you try just putting a copy of the binary found at IMagMagick's site in a folder under your root, and chmod to a+x then try executing the binary?
