I've just installed the imagick PHP extension following this script: https://gist.github.com/rostockahoi/1d53a2efb8863d72d5f1acb94ae940d1
The install went fine. I found the imagick.so file in /usr/lib/php/20180731 directory. And my php.ini files (fpm and cli) have the extension=imagick.so at the end.
I've restarted PHP and nginx.
Though, PHP cannot find the extension. Look at this CLI test :
$ php -i $ PHP Warning: PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library 'imagick.so' (tried: /usr/lib/php/20170718/imagick.so (/usr/lib/php/20170718/imagick.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory), /usr/lib/php/20170718/imagick.so.so (/usr/lib/php/20170718/imagick.so.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory)) in Unknown on line 0
PHP is looking for extensions in this directory
This dir exists but the imagick.so is not in it.
On the other hand, as said before, there is also the directory
/usr/lib/php/20180731/ with the imagick.so file in it.
I guess I have to tell PHP to look into the 20180731 dir instead of the 20170718.
How can I do that ?
Or should I copy manually the imagick.so file into 20170718 ? That does not seem optimal...
