I've installed a fresh Wordpress site on my Amazon Linux AMI following the setup instructions listed on the EC2 Tutorials section i.e. "Hosting a WordPress Blog with Amazon Linux". I'm also using the "WP S3 Offload" plugin so that I can use S3 to store my media files, rather then housing them on the EC2 instance. Ok, all that said the "WP S3 Offload" plugin is showing an error/warning message that says, "Image Manipulation Library Missing — Looks like you don't have an image manipulation library installed on this server and configured with PHP. You may run into trouble if you try to edit images. Please setup GD or ImageMagick."
I know I could search
yum packages by typing
sudo yum search ImageMagick in my EC2 instances terminal, which is what I did... and a list of available packages came up. Since I have PHP v5.6 installed, I decided to use the
php56-pecl-imagick package via
sudo yum install -y php56-pecl-imagick. I assumed that would take care of the problem but the "WP S3 Offload" plugin is still showing that same warning about the Image Manipulation Library Missing.
- Did I install/configure the ImageMagick package correctly?
- Is there another or more optimal way to install the ImageMagick package?
- How can I test if the package is installed or not?
- Am I missing any other packages?
