For websites using PHP 8 the most recent and highest performing version of PHP, you can now use imagick with it.
Before, the highest version to allow imagick was PHP 7.4
If you want to try PHP 8, just log into your cPanel and click the PHP selector icon. There you can change between several versions of PHP. When you change a version, the site will not work for about 2 seconds. You also may need to hold control and click refresh to do a hard refresh with your browser to see the new version.
If you have compatibility issues with PHP 8, you can always change the website back within a couple seconds.
We'll be adding imagick to all PHP 8 versions within the week.
