    I wanted to add that if you update the imagick 3.4.4 PECL source package with the following five files from the master branch:


    you will be able to compile imagick 3.4.4 for PHP 8.0. One hopes this is quickly migrated to PECL and to the various package managers/sites.

    I noticed imagick is missing on DreamHost.



    i just upgraded to WP 5.8 and now the Site Health Status screen says

    “One or more recommended modules are missing – Performance
    – The optional module, imagick, is not installed, or has been disabled.”

    I use a Dreamhost shared server running PHP 8.0, and Dreamhost told me
    “We suggest you to change your PHP version to 7.4 as it includes Imagick.”

    I see in the WP support forums that this imagick problem has been around for over 1 year. Should I downgrade to PHP 7.4 and hope this error goes away, or is the error too incidental to WP and I should just ignore it?

    Thank you for help,

    Ditto the above … should I switch back to PHP 7.4 on Dreamhost for my WordPress site?



    @zeevg On Dreamhost, my website is now on WP 5.8.1 and PHP 8.0 FastCGI. I no longer get the Site Health Status performance message about imagick. So I guess this problem is fixed?
