Enabling webp as a format for ImageMagick [Take 2]

Hello all,

I am helping a family member and received the following error when I updated the website software.

Missing imagick format(s)
The imagick image library in this provisioning lacks support for the following image format(s):

Some friendly forum users informed me that my Host needs to enable webp extension for php.

I found a previous thread that says this was in the works back in Oct '20

Any help that can be provided would be greatly appreciated.


I heard back from support yesterday. I’m still not clear if they wouldn’t or couldn’t set the extension, or if it was already set. Support asked my why I needed it enabled and then said that the site should be failing back to use another extension.

Regardless, they wound up restoring the site from backup which got the site back up and running.
