gd Library problem


Eitan

Recommended Posts

Well, im trying to use some of those contributions that make thumbnails smaller, and make the whole image system more efficient. I went to google and looked for instructions on how to enable the GD library, followed them to the T. Im running Mysql 4.0 as well as PHP 4.3, this is running on IIS 6. when i enable the gd library, my OSC wont load, at all, it doesnt say page not found, it just sits loading the screen for 20 minutes. Wondering what i can do to enable GD on this system. I just edited the 1 line in the php.ini to look for that gd.dll

 

Help is always appricaited

 

Thanks in advance

3 things I would do

 

1) check if the simplest php page loads

 

<html>
<head></head>
<body>
<?php print "I am working"; ?>
</body>
</html>

 

create that page, save as testing.php, upload to server and try to load it into your browser. If doesnt work then it is a problem with PHP

 

2) check your error_log for the webserver, it will give you a clue as to what is happening.

 

3) If the above are okay I would find the simplest GD script of the web just to test if GD is working. This is something that should be done everytime you add a feature to php just to make sure it is working.

 

Wood from the trees maybe
