I'd like to use the gd2 library in php 5.1.2 in Windows XP.
My web server is Apache 2.0.53 and php is configured to run as an Apache module.
I copied php.ini-dist to c:\Program Files\Apache Group\Apache2 and renamed it to php.ini.
I changed the extension_dir variable to the following:
extension_dir = "C:/Langs/php/ext/"

When I try to call imagecreate function, I get the following error message:
Fatal error: Call to undefined function imagecreate() in C:\Program Files\Zend\ZendStudioClient-4.0.2\projects\test.php on line 2

phpinfo() reports that the extension dir is "c:/php5"
Apache has been restarted a few times, but nothing has changed.
Why don't php notice the new php.ini?
