GD2 Library Installation Problems.

Recommended Posts

Hey, lol...

I now have a problem with installing my php_gd2.dll file to my computer.

I have Apache 2

PHP 4.3.4 EDIT: 4.3.6

I have changed the php.ini in C:\PHP so that:

extension=php_gd2.dll - Has been uncommented

extension_dir = "C:\PHP\extensions" - is Exactly the right place to get to php_gd2.dll

I then restarted Apache... then heypresto... nothin!

OK, well this is the exact message (To every Capital and exery piece of punctuation) I get when I try going to a page:

Unknown(): Unable to load dynamic library 'C:\PHP\extensions\php_gd2.dll' - The specified module could not be found.

Proof my pc is messed up:

Is there anyone who can tell me what I am doing wrong?!?!

you need to use a version that is able to work with version 4 as you can see it's version 5.0 you can download the version 4.38 without installer and extract it and try again

Thanks

Well, instead of bothering explaining and troubleshooting this as I'm sure you're not running a large production server, I'll point you to what you should install instead of worrying about something so small as getting the gd2 extension setup.

Download it. Install it. Start it. Done.

      AppServ 2.5.0

    * Apache 1.3.31

    * PHP 5.0.0

    * MySQL 4.0.20

    * Zend Optimizer (Zend Cannot run with PHP 5.0.0)

    * phpMyAdmin 2.5.7-pl1

    * Perl 5.8.0

You should get off of 4.3.6 and take it to 4.3.7 as there are several security exploits in 4.3.6 in case you didn't know.

4.3.8 is good enough that it's installed to my webhosts main servers plus every other server they have. 5.0 is great except there are a few compatability issues and that's why 5.0 hasn't been added yet.

I tried 5 for like a couple of days (BETA or whatever) and I didn't really like it... made no real difference to me except the fakt it was a bit faster and took up more space on my PC so I deleted it. Even though I had luck with the GD library.

I was wrong in my last post, 4.3.8 is the stable version you should be using. As newdles said 5.0 has alot of compatible issues with certain scripts.
