ImageMagick suddenly stopped working on Linux shared hosting

12:54 am on Feb 7, 2013 (gmt 0)

I have a classified ad script running that's been using ImageMagick for several years now with no problem. suddenly several weeks ago it just stopped working. I have linux shared hosting with Godaddy.

The person who wrote the script (mojoscripts) has shut down their support desk. Godaddy keeps telling the same thing over and over (The convert path to ImageMagick, version 5 on our servers is: /usr/bin/ The convert path to ImageMagick, version 6 on our servers is: /usr/bin/convert)

When I shut off imagemagick through the admin panel everything works normally except the photos upload without thumbnails which destroys the ad layout. When I turn on image magick I get the following error whenever uploading photos:

Can't locate Image/Magick.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /home/content/...(shortened)...cgi/scripts/imagemagick.pl line 2.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at... (shortened)...cgi/scripts/imagemagick.pl line 2.

Line two in the script is: use Image::Magick;

Mojoscripts help section says "Did you verify with the host that BOTH image::magick module (perlmagick) AND image magick utilities and libraries are installed ? (your host pointing to a server module list where image magick is listed as installed module is not enough in this case, it does not prove that the perl module has been fully installed with all components)."

I did run a php script to see if image magick was detected... both versions were detected on Godaddy but I couldn't tell whether perlmagick was installed.

I asked Godaddy to check if perlmagick was somehow uninstalled but they just aren't inclined to do so.

So I'm totally at a standstill here... not sure what other course to take at this point. Hope somebody can help or at least point me in a new direction that I haven't tried yet.

thanks you for reading,
