How we fix the error ‘module Imagick already loaded in Unknown on line 0’?
Till now we’ve discussed the error message. Now, let’s discuss how our Support Engineers fix this error.
Recently, one of our customers approached us with an error relating to IMagick.
The exact error appeared as:
Here, he was trying to perform
php-fpm -v after installing the Imagick extension for his PHP.
Looking at the error we found that the problem was with the duplicate entry in the php.ini file.
So we went checking the php.ini file in the server for the duplicate entry.
At last, we found that the line
extension=imagick.so was present in it. So we commented this line as below
Finally, this fixed the error.
In another case, one of our customers had created
echo extension=imagick.so in the php.ini file.
echo extension=imagick.ini manually while installing the IMagick PHP extension.
So in order to fix this error, we deleted the imagick.ini file from the customer’s account.
This also fixed the error effectively.
