Did I install GD correctly?
The reason I ask is because I am having problems with a script that uses GD and I was told that I may not have GD installed. So I downloaded GD from this link:

uploaded the files to my server, ran ./configure - success

ran make - success

ran make install -success

However I am using php info and I do not see any listing about GD being enabled on my system. Can anyone please help? :(

Try running ldconfig

So log into ssh and type idconfig?

Please anyone?

ldconfig with an L but not capital. Im assuming you havent restarted your server at all since you made the change or else this will not make a difference.

ok I ran ldconfig and putty paused for about 3 seconds then went to the next line I didnt see it do anything.

It doesnt show it doing anything, all it does is reloads everything in /etc/ Sometimes when you install new drivers or something it will add a line to that file and you need to run ldconfig. Check if GD is reckognized now.

Oh ok, I will check now thanks :D

Ok I do not see GD in the phpinof.php, so I suppose I didnt install it correctly?

ran make install -success

Thats all I had to do? Why wont this work :(

Ok when I log into Cpanel WHT it says php version 4.3.3, is this patch for php 4.3.2? If so it looks like I already have it installed and I am not seeing GD

lexington 04-15-2004 09:14 AM

Man this sucks I dont know why noone knows my my problem and how to fix it I am sure everyone in here has installed GD before.

lexington 04-15-2004 11:13 AM

Ok nevermind a friend did it for me it works now

dopefish 04-15-2004 12:02 PM

Could you post the solution in case other people come across this problem?
