Gd Library Not Installed

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I run php 5.3.1 on my local apache server. I am very much a beginner and usually run the local server to develop joomla and wordpress and the odd simple php application.

 

However, I am now getting some errors along the lines of "No GD library". After googling I have come to the conlcusion that I have the gd library but its somehow not "Compiled/installed" or set up.

 

I looked at the php manuel page but I didn't understand.

 

I think I have to edit the php.ini file, but I am not sure what I am supposed to add

 

Can anyone help please

What operating system are you using and what method did you originally use to install php, as those determine how to install a php extension.

Hi thanks for the reply. I looked in my php.ini file and did a search for "gd" whereupon I found ;extension=php_gd2.dll

 

I took the ; off the front and now when I load up the back end of joomla the error message about not having GD is gone.

 

Is that it then?

 

If not I am running windows 7 ultra. I don't think I used a package - I think I installed php, mysql, apache all separately. To be honest I can't really remember.

If you installed php manually, so that all the .dll files are present, under Windows, that's all you normally need to do.

You can install XAMPP on computer, very handy thing. It has GD and other standart libraries.
