Installing Imagick only installs on lowest php version

I installed Imagick on a client's server by going to Software -> Module Installers -> PHP Pecl, searching for it, and installing it. It said it worked fine. I restarted both php-fpm and apache, wrote a test script, and the script failed. I ssh'd into the server, cd to /opt/cpanel/ea-php73, and grepped for imagick, and nothing came up. I then went up a few levels to /opt/cpanel and re-ran the grep, and a bunch of stuff came up, but only in the /opt/cpanel/ea-php72 branch.

How do I get it to install for all installed versions of php and not just the lowest one? I did confirm that if I set the site to use 7.2 instead of 7.3 imagick does work, but I don't understand why the interface only did it for the one version.

Edit: correction, on another server for the client it didn't just install on the lowest one, it installed on 5.6, 7.0, and 7.1, but not on 7.2, 7.3, or 7.4:


Code:
[[email protected] ~]# cd /opt/cpanel/ea-php73/root/etc/php.d
[[email protected] php.d]# grep -Ir imagick *
[[email protected] php.d]# cd /opt/cpanel/ea-php72/root/etc/php.d
[[email protected] php.d]# grep -Ir imagick *
[[email protected] cpanel]# cd /opt/cpanel/ea-php56/root/etc/php.d
[[email protected] php.d]# grep -Ir imagick *
zzzzzzz-pecl.ini:extension="imagick.so"
[[email protected] php.d]# cd /opt/cpanel/ea-php70/root/etc/php.d
[[email protected] php.d]# grep -Ir imagick *
zzzzzzz-pecl.ini:extension="imagick.so"
[[email protected] php.d]# cd /opt/cpanel/ea-php71/root/etc/php.d
[[email protected] php.d]# grep -Ir imagick *
zzzzzzz-pecl.ini:extension="imagick.so"
[[email protected] php.d]# cd /opt/cpanel/ea-php72/root/etc/php.d
[[email protected] php.d]# grep -Ir imagick *
[[email protected] php.d]# cd /opt/cpanel/ea-php74/root/etc/php.d

You need to install it for each version of PHP on the server.


When installed correctly you should see the following output in the module installer UI - the example I'm providing is from PHP 7.1

Code:
Build process completed successfully
Installing '/opt/cpanel/ea-php71/root/usr/lib64/php/modules/imagick.so'
Installing '/opt/cpanel/ea-php71/root/usr/include/php/ext/imagick/php_imagick_shared.h'
install ok: channel://pecl.php.net/imagick-3.4.4
Extension imagick enabled in php.ini
I tested this on my own server and found no issues with it being shown:
Code:
[[email protected] ~]# grep -ir imagick /opt/cpanel/ea-php**/root/etc/php.d
/opt/cpanel/ea-php56/root/etc/php.d/zzzzzzz-pecl.ini:extension="imagick.so"
/opt/cpanel/ea-php71/root/etc/php.d/zzzzzzz-pecl.ini:extension="imagick.so"
/opt/cpanel/ea-php72/root/etc/php.d/zzzzzzz-pecl.ini:extension="imagick.so"
/opt/cpanel/ea-php73/root/etc/php.d/zzzzzzz-pecl.ini:extension="imagick.so"
/opt/cpanel/ea-php74/root/etc/php.d/zzzzzzz-pecl.ini:extension="imagick.so"
