GD Lib error... Need to install and/or configure via SSH
Posted on 2004-11-07
I have a server at a Houston data center (a 7 hr drive from here).
In my newly installed instance of phpWebsite from the good kids at Appalachian State U, I get an error when trying to upload images to the photo gallery. It reads:
The photoalbum module requires the GD library functions. If you are getting this error then your GD libs are missing. Please contact your systems administrator to resolve this issue. With versions of php prior to 4.3.0 you must compile the GD libs into your build of php (--with-gd[=DIR], where DIR is the GD base install directory) Php 4.3.0 and greater have the GD libs already built in."
Fine, but I have root access via SSH to this box. How can I fix it?
