I have seen many of the system admins confuses with the php Imagick and with ImageMagick(binary). Few of the php script requires the Imagick classes like Imagick, ImagickDraw, ImagickPixel, ImagickPixelIterator. So you need to download and install the Imagick separately by download it from pecl.

Installing Imagick

The installation procedure is same for Cpanel / Directadmin and plesk servers. Ssh your server as root.

The use to copy to the php extensions directory for example ” /usr/local/lib/php/extensions/no-debug-non-zts-20060613/ “. So next step is to edit and add the line in your php.ini.

  • # php -i | grep php.ini (will show the location)
    # echo “extension=””” >> /your/path/php.ini

Restart the Apache service and create a phpinfo page in any of your accessible document-root folder to make sure that you are able to see the following similar to the screen-caps.
