Why can't ImageMagick be run from a script?
I am on a shared server, and would like to use ImageMagick to convert an SVG file to a jpeg image, but I have found that I can't run ImageMagick from within a PHP script. According to this page, it can only be run from the command line, or, on a shared server by using exec() or a cron job:
1) Why aren't the APIs installed?
2) Is it possible to install them? Or is using exec() or a cron job really my only option?
