I have a linux server hosted at server beach. My server is running PHP version 4.3.9  I'm trying to get my php apps to create thumbnail images of larger graphics files using the GD library. According to the GD Library FAQ on the boutell.com/gd website version 4.3.X includes a version of gd as "standard equipment" and that it's not enabled by default. I just have to un-comment the 'extension=php_gd2.dll'. But I looked through my php.ini files and I don't have that line.

Is this one of the situations where php has to be compiled differently to get this functionality?

I don't see anything in phpinfo that leads me to believe that the gd library is available. Also, executing gd_info ( ) returns nothing.

Any help would be appreciated.

I'm not a linux user but I think for linux you need ".so" and not ".dll"

If you are still using mysql_ functions, STOP! Use mysqli_ or PDO. The longer you leave it the more you will have to rewrite.
