Unable to load dynamic library ‘’ – How to resolve

by | Jun 22, 2021

Are you unable to load dynamic library ‘’? We can help you.

Here at Bobcares, we often receive requests regarding Imagick as a part of our Server Management Services.

Today, let’s see how our Support Engineers fix this IMagick error.


Unable to load dynamic library

Typical error will look as below in your apache error_logs.

[18-Aug-2011 09:07:32] PHP Warning: PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library ‘/usr/local/lib/php/extensions/no-debug-non-zts-20060613/’ – /usr/local/lib/php/extensions/no-debug-non-zts-20060613/ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory in Unknown on line 0

Which means one of your websites is trying to use ImageMagick, but your server doesn’t have it.

This is resulting in PHP errors, which will then report in the error log.

You can resolve it by either stoping your website from trying to use ImageMagick, or by installing ImageMagick.

We have put together a basic process below that will install ImageMagick on a cPanel server that is running CentOS.

cPanel does have a quick install method, but it doesn’t work on all systems.


How to resolve it?

Today, let us discuss about the two methods followed by our Support Techs to resolve this error.

Method 1:

This method is simple and quick.

You simply need to connect via SSH to the server with root privileges and run the following command at the prompt:


That will install it for you,but as mentioned earlier it won’t work in cPanel servers.

In that case you can follow method 2.


Method 2:

In this method, you would need to install ImageMagick.

Firstly, you need to download the source files. We recommend downloading the latest version, but they have several versions that you can download if you want a specific version.

The repository for the source files can be found here: click here.

Run the following commands once you have found the right file:


tar -zxvf MagickWandForPHP-1.0.8.tar.gz

cd MagickWandForPHP-1.0.8




make install

You should now have ImageMagick installed and running on your server.

Then you can install the supporting libraries.
