Problems installing ImageMagick

Hi all,

I need to install imagemagick, in order that I can offer a php function to create JPEG images from uploaded PDFs (if anyone knows a way to do that without ImageMagick, please do enlighten me.)

I ran yum install ImageMagick with completed with no errors

Having found guidance elsewhere on these forums, I then tried to move on to install the PHP plugin with pecl install imagick but this fails as follows:

downloading imagick-3.0.1.tgz ...

Can anyone help?




It sounds like it’s saying you need a compiled to first be installed before you can build that imagick module. You can install that by running this command:

yum install gcc

After that, try running the imagick installation again, and see if that goes the trick.
