The locate command is the fastest way to search for files. It stores a list of files that are in the system in a database. Lookups are super-fast because it looks at that database instead of searching the entire hard drive. Run the updatedb command to update the database used by locate. On systems where locate is used regularly, updatedb is often scheduled with a cron job.

However, I see that you are looking for binaries (executable programs.) The which command searches the directories listed in the PATH environment variable. On my system, the command which php returns /usr/bin/php.

if you installed php through yum then it would be under /usr/bin/php
just remove local from the path listed

same with imagemagick
if you installed it through yum then remove the local in that path; it would be /usr/bin for mogrify, convert and composite

if package installed with different path other than default, you can find this through find command.

find / -name *php
