How to install GraphicsMagick with GMagick PHP extension

Let's install GraphicsMagick!

cd /usr/local/src
wget ftp://ftp.graphicsmagick.org/pub/GraphicsMagick/GraphicsMagick-LATEST.tar.gz
tar xvfz GraphicsMagick-LATEST
cd GraphicsMagick-*
./configure --enable-shared
make
make install

Let's test it.

gm version 

If you get this error:

gm: error while loading shared libraries: libGraphicsMagick.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

 Do this to fix:

echo "/usr/local/lib" >> /etc/ld.so.conf
ldconfig

Ok... Let's install GMagick PHP extension

pecl/gmagick for PHP 5.6

cd /usr/local/src
wget https://pecl.php.net/get/gmagick-1.1.7RC3.tgz #this is the last PHP 5.6 version supported
tar xfvz gmagick
cd gmagick-*
/usr/local/php56/bin/phpize56
./configure --with-php-config=/usr/local/php56/bin/php-config ### PHP 5.6
make
make install

Add the extension to your php.ini

/usr/local/bin/php --ini | grep 'Loaded Configuration File' ### Find the location of your main php.ini
vi /usr/local/php56/lib/php.ini  ### PHP5.6
 
### Add the following
extension=gmagick.so
 
### Restart apache/php-fpm
systemctl restart php-fpm56  ### PHP5.6 php-fpm
systemctl restart httpd
 
### Or 
 
service php-fpm56 restart
service httpd restart

pecl/gmagick for PHP 7

cd /usr/local/src
wget https://pecl.php.net/get/gmagick
tar xfvz gmagick
cd gmagick-*
/usr/local/php70/bin/phpize70
/usr/local/php71/bin/phpize71
./configure --with-php-config=/usr/local/php70/bin/php-config ### PHP7.0
./configure --with-php-config=/usr/local/php71/bin/php-config ### PHP7.1
make
make install

Add the extension to your php.ini

/usr/local/bin/php --ini | grep 'Loaded Configuration File' ### Find the location of your main php.ini
vi /usr/local/php70/lib/php.ini  ### PHP7.0
vi /usr/local/php71/lib/php.ini  ### PHP7.1
 
### Add the following
extension=gmagick.so
 
### Restart apache/php-fpm
systemctl restart php-fpm71; systemctl restart php-fpm70 
systemctl restart httpd
 
### Or 
 
service php-fpm71 restart; service php-fpm70 restart
service httpd restart

Install GhostScript (for PDF conversion)

cd /usr/local/src
# this is the latest free version
wget http://downloads.ghostscript.com/public/old-gs-releases/ghostscript-9.18.tar.gz 
tar xvfz ghostscript-9.18.tar.gz 
cd ghostscript-9.18
./configure
make
make install
rm -rf /usr/bin/ghostscript; ln -s /usr/local/bin/gs /usr/bin/ghostscript
<./pre>
 
 
<p class="alert alert-danger">DEPRECATED</p>
<pre>
pecl -d preferred_state=beta install gmagick

Let's add this to our php.ini under our other PHP extensions.

extension=gmagick.so

Restart apache and we're done.

service httpd restart
