I was trying to install php 5.4 on Centos 6.3 and I decided to go with the webstatic version. I've tried to to install imagick using the followng commands

pecl install imagick
yum install php54w-pecl-imagick
yum install php54w-imagick

But each to no avail. Is there a way to install imagick using php54w?

What is the problem you are having? – Michael Hampton Jun 25 '13 at 18:37
The pecl package throws an error when using autodetect and the other two packages don't exist. – Devin Dixon Jun 25 '13 at 20:03
Webtatic has since added the imagick extension, so your first yum command yum install php54w-pecl-imagick would work – Andy Sep 5 '15 at 19:49

You can use IUS Community repo - But first of all you need to uninstall previously installed php packages. And the execute the following commands

# rpm --import
# rpm -ivh
# yum install php54-pecl-imagick

P.S. I assumed that you have used x64 arch

FWIW on CentOS 5 the RPM is found at:‌​s.el5.noarch.rpm – doublesharp Aug 18 '14 at 23:46
