This could just have easily gone under Linux Newbie since I have no idea what I am doing, but since it is a software question I thought I would try this forum.
I am missing the GD library on my server so the Captcha is not working.
I looked for the php_gd2.dll in the php.ini but did not see it anywhere.
I am running Fedora 11.0-64 and PHP 5.2.13.
The steps I have tried are:
From the root doing "yum install php-gd"
Then did a "service httpd restart"
I did a grep of various pieces of "extension=php_gd2.dll" in the php.ini but did not see this line anywhere.
My file path is /etc/php.ini
Is there some where else I should be looking? Other steps I can take?
You said its not included;but its there in my fedora.What you do is serach inside the file.Its commented.
PHP includes a version of gd as "standard equipment." php_gd2.dll is included in a standard PHP installation which is not enabled by default. To turn it on, the user may simply uncomment the line "extension=php_gd2.dll" in php.ini and restart the PHP extension.
You may also have to correct the extension directory setting from:
extension_dir = "./"
extension_dir = "./extensions"

prayag_pjs, thanks for the help.
Bear with me as I am new at this.
From the directory /root/etc
grep "php_gd2.dll" php.ini
and nothing shows up.
I type in
grep extension php.ini
and all I get is
"[root@server2 etc]# grep extension php.ini
; dynamically loaded extension (either a PHP extension or a Zend extension),
; you may only use these constants *after* the line that loads the extension.
; leading '/'. You must also specify the file extension being used including
; If you wish to have an extension loaded automatically, use the following
; needs to go here. Specify the location of the extension with the
; extension_dir directive above.
; Note: packaged extension modules are now loaded via the .ini files
; Sets the directory name where SOAP extension will put cache files.
so I don't see the line I am supposed to uncomment.
Am I in in the wrong file? wrong directory? Missing complete chunks of code?
