    Hi I am trying to find how to install gd extention and I dont know where to get it. I have been advised to do this

    login whm and go to software on side and click on install a rpm and that is completely empty in there and so i was advised to rebuild rpm database and i did that and it completed very fast with in like 25 seconds

    then i was told to attempt an install via ssh by typing in rpm -i and that said no packages given for install

    so this leaves me dumfounded lol cause I dont know what to do or where to get it please can someone help me

    Thanks so much
    Shannon :confused:

    depends on what "GD" you need

    GD.pm
    GD cmpiled into php
    GD rpm for the linux dristo your on

    :confused:

    if you rebuilt your rpm database and its still blank you may need to rebuuild it from the command line

    you can also install directly from you OS mirrors since I do not know what OS your on I cant tell you that

    rpm -ivh http://yourosmirror.com/gd-ver.#.i386.rpm

    Well GD installing is not just that you install an RMP and it will start working, you will have to compile it will Apache for every thing to go smooth...

    The easiest way is to login into your WHM and goto Main >> Software >> Apache Update and select all the options including GD that you wish to be installed and compiled on your server.

    Or else you can login on the server as root and run /scripts/easyapache and select the option 5.. It will install and compile GD on your server.

    Note : You should know exactly what you are upto, please follow this instruction on your own risk.
