[solved] PHP-GD Error


Recommended Posts

Did you restart apache after running apt-get?

What about the php5-gd package?  Nevermind you are running PHP7. I thought GD was included with php these days by default. Any chance PHP was manually compiled, rather than installed via aptitude?

What does this return?

php -i | grep -i --color gd

No, I've just run 

sudo systemctl restart apache2

I'm not sure - I'm running php7 so I'm not sure why I would want this package?

If I try and install this using `sudo apt-get install php5-gd` I get an error as
follows though

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Package php5-gd is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package 'php5-gd' has no installation candidate

adrian just read it ;) 


this command returns

geot@ubuntu-512mb-nyc3-01:/var/www/html$ php -i | grep -i --color gd
GD Support => enabled
GD headers Version => 2.1.1
GD library Version => 2.1.1
gd.jpeg_ignore_warning => 0 => 0

If there's any other info i can give to make this post more complete just say.

Otherwise this seems to be resolved now
