How to enable Imagick (ImageMagick)

The Imagick PHP extension is available on all StartUp, GrowBig and GoGeek Siteground servers, but is disabled by default. If you would like to enable and use the PHP extension, then you need to go to your cPanel -> PHP Variables Manager tool. Select the folder for which you want the extension enabled and inside the Variable field type "extension" and click Add. In the new field that shows up on the page, type:

and click Save. If you want to have the extension enabled for all subfolders as well tick the checkbox named Apply changes to all subdirectories? and then press the Save button.

Alternatively you can add the following line in a file named php.ini in the folder for which the extension should be enabled:

and save the file.

You can create or edit the php.ini file by using File Manager, FTP or SSH. This should be done in every folder for which you want the Imagick PHP extension enabled.

The Imagick PHP extension is not pre-installed by default on our Cloud and Dedicated servers but you can request its installation by contacting us. After the extension is installed you can enable it for any of the folders of your account by following the instructions above.
