After about 3 installation trys i believe i need to ask someone for assistance, i would like to use the ImageMagick on XenForo as its so much better, but i've tried many ways the best way so far was:

yum install ImageMagick
(pecl install imagick sometimes you may have ask to install gcc compiler. if so execute)

yum install gcc
usr/lib/php.ini
add extension = "imagick.so"

(Restart Apache by) service httpd restart

I have Centos 5 on my server and running the latest cPanel.

Thank you for any support.

Thanks Brogan i followed: http://xenforo.com/community/threads/help-to-install-imagemagick.24854/#post-302713

but now the forums have a 500 internal error?

My forums are: http://www.forum.varzu.co.uk/
http://trivunetwork.co.uk/

-------------------
Updated: Downgraded to PHP 5.2.17 not 5.3.8 and now its working again not Error 500s

But
XenForo can make use of various different image processing libraries to produce image thumbnails etc. Select your preferred library from the list above.

its still not selectable?

Is the imagick module enabled in phpinfo? You can check in the admin area of your forum by appending the URL with admin.php?tools/phpinfo

If not, does the line you added to php.ini look like this?

extension=imagick.so

http://www.forum.varzu.co.uk/admin.php?tools/phpinfo comes up white, i did turn off phpinfo so i turned it back on by removing:
show_source, system, shell_exec, passthru, phpinfo, popen, proc_open, allow_url_fopen, ini_set from the Disabled_functions and turned my firewall and restarted Apache and it still was blank so im not sure so i put that back in to secure my server again.

Core extension suhosin.so, imagick.so

My php ini file has:

Code:
; Directory in which the loadable extensions (modules) reside.
extension_dir = "/usr/local/lib/php/extensions/no-debug-non-zts-20060613"
zend_extension = "/usr/local/IonCube/ioncube_loader_lin_5.2.so"
zend_extension = "/usr/local/Zend/lib/Optimizer-3.3.9/php-5.2.x/ZendOptimizer.so"
extension = "suhosin.so"
extension = "imagick.so"

That only installs the ImageMagick library for the OS, it is not the PHP package. Under Ubuntu the package is php5-imagick - ImageMagick module for php5.

Try running the following:

pecl install imagick

Ok,

Depending on the version of PHP installed the following will be a different number but nevertheless it will still be there.

cd /usr/lib/php
ls -al
it should list a few subdirectories, one will be a number. cd into that subdirectory.
ls -al
you should see a list of files ending in .so. Can you see one called imagick.so ??

Check for the file location. Run these commands.

locate imagick.so
