    My webhost is insisting that the imagick PECL extension is installed but the option to enable it in xenforo is greyed out.

    What is a simple way to prove it is or isnt installed so I can go back to my webost? something in phpinfo or a simple test script perhaps?

    Try checking your php info server page first, see is ImageMagick is in fact shown as being installed.

    Create a php file called "test.php" and upload it to your ROOT directory and point your web browser to it using this code. Or just download the file I've attached and upload it instead.

    That isn't required.

    XenForo already includes the ability to display the PHP information, as I posted above.

    Well, I must be missing it then. I can't see the option to launch your server PHP Info page from within XenForo admin cp, and I'm using latest version. Unless your talking about the option being grey'd out to use it. Which wasn't what I was on about.

    Yeah, that works and wasn't aware of that. Was looking for a link to click to launch it.

    You may have to add something to the php.ini file for your site, I'd check with your host again.
