Automatic Thumbnails on Windows OS?


Recommended Posts

Is there a way to have automatic thumbnails without GD? Or an even better question would be does GD work on windows? The GD website has this download: "Windows DLL .zip (NOT CURRENTLY FOR PHP)" which sounds like it wont work for osc.


Does anyone have an automatic thumbnails contribution working on their windows server?

I tried putting the php_gd2.dll file into my c:\php\extensions folder, I set my extensions dir in php.ini to c:\php\extensions and I uncommented the line for the php_gd2.dll extension. Now I get this error on every page:


PHP Warning: Unknown(): Unable to load dynamic library 'C:\PHP\extensions\php_gd2.dll' - The specified procedure could not be found. in Unknown on line 0


The file is there, and a couple of forum posts state that this is the exact way to do it, yet it still doesnt work. One forum post says: "Go to http://www.php.net/downloads.php and download the 'PHP 4.x.x zip package' if you don't allready have it. This package contains the GD-Library for windows." ....thats exactly what I did.

On some windows installations of PHP you also have to copy the .dll file to the sapi folder in your php directory. Don't know that I actually read that anywhere, but had the same problem with php_mbstring.dll
