I am trying to install
imagick on a VPS running Centos 5.8. Typically, it’s a quick fix, but the hosting provider will not allow (permission is already denied) me to use the typical fix, which is to remount
/var/tmp as executable, and then remount as non-exec.
I have already run the following commands without error (as expected, gcc is needed):
yum install php-pear gcc yum install ImageMagick ImageMagick-devel
After that, when I run
pecl install imagick it kicks back that /var/tmp permissions were denied.
Is there a way for me to change the default location from
/var/tmp to resolve this? Or is there another workaround or something I am missing? Thanks!
Set a different temporary directory on a filesystem on which you can execute binaries. For instance:
mkdir /root/tmp pecl config-set temp_dir /root/tmp
pear config-set temp_dir /root/tmp
