it was basically libraries and pre IM/ GS installs which the server didnt have e.g. i have to update autoconf cause the IM was packed with latest but im still testing my system

one thing i notices if the PDF has white background it makes it black and the sizes are squished what could be the fix?

will post my findings

You would have to upload the PDF to some place like dropbox.com and put the URL here for us to examine it. It is possible that it has transparency which is not supported by JPG. The size issue is very odd, but PDFs are vectors. If the PDF has a raster imbedded in the vector cover, then the raster image may have a different density and characteristics than is specified by the PDF. So again one would need to inspect the PDF.
