Install ImageMagick for PHP on XAMPP

Postby sslazio 1900 » 04. October 2012 14:35

Hi guys!

I'm a professional photographer, i'm Italian and i'm writing the new versione of my website. Since i need a lot of quality of all the manipulation precesses on my system, i've found very useful and powerful the imagick library. On my server all works fine, my host provider gives me the library installed on php 5.4

But i need now to test my app on my local host server (xampp latest version 1.8.1). I've found a lot of tutorials about this installation, but all usind an old version of XAMPP (1.7.3)... i absolutely need to use my xampp with imagemagick installed.

Unfortunately, when i try to follow one of this tutorials, imagick library does not works on my XAMPP. Anyone can help me with a step by step guide?? I've not exeperience in webserver administration, i need a really basic guide to follow for the installation :(

Thanks a lot!

Have you tried those DLLs with 1.8.0/1.8.1?

Those DLLs were compiled against PHP 5.3 and XAMPP 1.8.0/1.8.1 contain PHP 5.4 which is a significant upgrade. The PHP imagick extension did not even add PHP 5.4 support until months after the DLLs on that page were compiled.
