Take a look at http://zeromq.org/bindings:php and follow the steps.
I usually build ZeroMQ from github, I follow the "Building from
Github" part of the document.
With the instructions on the page you build zmq as a php extension and
then depending on your php installation
you need to to enable the extension in your php.ini or /etc/php/conf.d.

Can you please be more specific about your installation problems?
What does your stack look like? Which OS do you use? Which PHP version?
How did you try to install the library and what problems did you have?
