I added to  php.ini but after restarting Apache ImageMagick is not found in phpinfo and I can't locate the file anywhere on my Mac.  Is there some novice mistake I'm making or is there a problem with the MacPorts install?

Also, remove "" from your php.ini again. All the php extension ports set these extension directives automatically in their own ini files; it's all automatic.
