Would you be able to let us know what distro are you on?

assuming you installed from ports or packages

pkg_add php52-ming should add module .ini file to php's include directory after installing php_ming module.

# cd /usr/ports/graphics/php52-ming
# make install clean
===>  php52-ming-5.2.14 cannot install: doesn't work with PHP version : 5 (Doesn't support PHP 4 5).
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/graphics/php52-ming.

you can check what is wrong with build and submit bug report to ports@ with your fix
downgrade is not a welcome option for new install
