XF 1.5 Image Magick is installed but cannot be enabled

Dear xenforos!

I am receiving the error message, that Image Magick is not enabled on my logs.
I had IMagick installed some 8 months ago and checked with the server support, which assured me, that IMagick is installed on Xenforo. (See details below).

Why cannot I enable IMagick in the option-attachments -screen?
I recently upgraded to XF1.5 and upgraded relevant addon folders (Convert Image).

Thanks TonyB.

Hi Tony,

Thanks for your email.

I can confirm that ImageMagick is installed. Here is the version information from the server.

[root@cosmosdawn-com httpdocs]# /usr/bin/convert -version
Version: ImageMagick 6.7.2-7 2015-07-23 Q16 http://www.imagemagick.org
Copyright: Copyright (C) 1999-2011 ImageMagick Studio LLC

Kind regards,

Please contact your web hosting company and tell them to re-install ImageMagick PECL on your server as it no longer works.

Your host may have installed ImageMagick only and not the ImageMagick PECL extension (imagick).

You can check to see if it is installed by going to yourwebsite.com/admin.php?tools/phpinfo then checking on that phpinfo page for imagick. If it isn't there, they haven't installed it.
