GD 2.0.15 install, permission denied
I'm trying to install GD 2.0.15 on Red Hat (not sure the version). I have root access and I'm logged into the server via ssh. I didn't setup the server as it is a hosting company which set it up. They installed GD 1.8.4.
When I upload the GD 2.0.15 and type ./configure to start the install I get:
bash: ./configure: Permission denied
Is this because GD 1.8.4 is installed? Again I'm logged in as root so I don't understand why I can't do this.
Second question, do I have to take down some services like httpd to install this? Any suggestions as to why I cannot install or run this command? Thanks.
