For the past week I have been attempting to get ImageMagick to work with PHP. I have tried installing both the MagickWand and Imagick extensions but I’ve had no success.
For MagickWand I have followed all the instructions found http://www.magickwand.org/ and the main problem is that I cannot phpsize anything. I then installed a custom version of php in my home directory according to dreamhost’s wiki instructions. This didn’t get me any closer to getting magickwand working. Everytime I try to phpize it i get a “Cannot find autoconf. Please check your autoconf installation and the $PHP_AUTOCONF
environment variable is set correctly and then rerun this script.
Not being able to obtain any sort of real support from customer service or the wiki I looked to see if there were instructions to get any other extension working. I found instructions for PHPLib, followed them and was able to get that working. When I tried applying the same steps to Magickwand I quickly failed due to the fact that I can’t seem to produce magickwand.so from the install.
If anyone has any idea on how I could get this working please reply… I’ve almost gotten to a point where I’m going to change platforms(from php to ruby) just because the Rmagick extension works fine. Thanks in advance.
