Codeigniter, XAMPP, ImageMagick... and Mac OS X 10.6.6

Hello Everyone,

I have a fully functional version of Codeigniter and XAMPP on my Mac. I installed ImageMagick from http://www.imagemagick.org/script/binary...php#macosx to the directory /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/imagic/ImageMagick-6.6.9

Using the command line I set the following environment variables:

export MAGICK_HOME="/Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/imagic/ImageMagick-6.6.9/"
export PATH="$MAGICK_HOME/bin:$PATH"

Then I tested the installation with:

$magick> convert logo: logo.gif
$magick> identify logo.gif

And everything worked fine!

But I just can't get it to work from Codeigniter's Image Manipulation Class $this->load->library('image_lib');

I have set the following in the config array:

$config = array(
'image_library' => 'imagemagick',
'library_path' => '/Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/imagic/ImageMagick-6.6.9/bin',

But I always get the same error when trying to run the function:

Image processing failed. Please verify that your server supports the chosen protocol and that the path to your image library is correct.

Does anyone have any ideas where I can start looking to find the reason why it is not working, I was suspecting maybe something needs to be in php.ini, but I am not sure!


You should provides a wrapper to the ImageMagick library like these one first, didnt you?

Hi toopay,

Thanks for the quick answer. No, I didn't setup a wrapper - didn't know that I was supposed to set one up.

Does anyone know how to correctly configure the wrapper?
