Install Imagemagick – CentOS 6.5

This is how I installed Imagemagick on a vanilla CentOS server

Start off by installing the prerequisites

yum install php-pear gcc php-devel php-pear

Issue the following to verify whether you have Imagemagick available via the current repositories

yum list ImageMagick*

You should see something similar to the result below:

imagemagick list available install

Issue the following to install ImageMagick

yum install ImageMagick ImageMagick-devel

Now install the imagick library for PHP

pecl install imagick

Load the imagick extension into PHP

echo extension=imagick.so > /etc/php.d/imagick.ini

Restart Apache

service httpd restart

To verify that imagick has been successfully installed, do any of the following

php -m | grep imagick

Or check your PHPINFO

phpinfo imagick

  1. THANKS!
    I had tried to install image-magick on a centos server last month and it just totally crashed and died…. and there were no answers to be found.

    So on my new centos 6.6 server today, I followed your procedure to the letter and it WORKED!

    Actually I needed it for perl, not php… I simply added in the -perl thing, and it was perfect.

    Thank You!
