How to install Imagick on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS with XAMPP

here's how I managed to add Imagick to XAMPP on fresh Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

Files I had to download:

I used this version of XAMPP
Code: Select all

Choose the version of PHP source code that matches the the version your XAMPP uses. In this case 7.1.11 = 7.1.11
Code: Select all

Code: Select all

Install these packages:
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install php-pear
sudo apt-get install autoconf
sudo apt-get install libmagickwand-6.q16-dev

Extract the PHP source code to /opt/lampp/include/php - this folder wasn't on my pc. Probably because I installed XAMPP without 'developers files'. You might also have to change permissions in order to be able to copy something to /opt/lampp (or run
Code: Select all
sudo -i
to become root and then run
Code: Select all
to start the file manager with root rights and avoid changing permissions ;-)

Run these commands
Code: Select all
sudo -i
cd /opt/lampp/include/php/

Extract Imagick anywhere you want to - I used
Code: Select all

Code: Select all
cd /home/user/Downloads/imagick/imagick-3.4.3
sudo /opt/lampp/bin/phpize
./configure --with-php-config=/opt/lampp/bin/php-config
make install

Now add this line
Code: Select all
to /opt/lampp/etc/php.ini. I added it just above ; to line 1030

Start or restart XAMPP and you should see imagick in your PHP info
