I am trying to install php-gd
I think I have installed as I ran yum install php-gd and it said it installed it and it upgraded my php to v 5.1.6
there is no entra for the extension in my php.ini Untitled Document
I have restarted httpd and it still does not work. PHP was installed first and not compiled with the GD extension as i did not need it at the time and thought it would install now with yum ok
not to sure where to go now to get GD to work
Thanks for any help
Things to look for
Here are some things to try:
First see if your install worked. You can create a php file with this function
Run this via localhost(wwwroot) in your browser and should tell you if GD installed correctly. This will display all extensions/modules etc... that php has configured.
Second, if GD is not visible through phpinfo() try looking in your php.ini to see if the extension dir is correct. Then check to see that the the gd.so file is located in that dir. If not I suggest to reinstall.
I'm new to linux but not php, So I can only offer what I have learned so far. :)
