    Hello,

    (sorry about my bad english, i hope u will understand whats problem/ what I mean)

    why GD 2.0.33: because versions older than 2.0.28 dont support gif or transparent gif or gif-animations.

    for a couple of days I try to install gd 2.0.33 but it doesnt work. I still see gd 2.0.15 when look in phpinfo.


    my server info :

    redhat 9
    cpanel
    p4 2.0
    apache 1.3.33
    php 4.3.3

    I have installed it as I see on boutell.com/gd/

    I installed/uninstalled it manytimes
    I tried with (WHM) php 4.3.3., 4.3.9 , 4.3.10
    no success

    I tried to buildapache without GD but I still see GD 2.0.15 in phpinfo.

    my question:

    HOW CAN I MANUALLY UPGRADE TO GD 2.0.33 ?

    Thanks for any help

    ------------------------------------
    Note: Before I post here

    - I have read all pages on boutell.com/gd/
    - I searched on google with many variations
    - I have searched on php.net and mailing lists
    - I have searched on Google groups
    - I have searched on forums.cpanel.net and webhostingtalk.com
    (You cannot search just for 'GD', because word is too short..bad.. :mad: )
    - I have searched on redhat, some linux php tipps & tutorials sites etc..

    The bundled GD with php isn't the same as what is released via the dev team. According to the php web site:
    " Only supported in GD versions older than gd-1.6 and newer than gd-2.0.28. Read-only GIF support is available with PHP 4.3.0 and the bundled GD-library. Write support is avaliable since PHP 4.3.9 and PHP 5.0.1."
    Source: http://www.php.net/gd

    If you still want the latest version from the developers of GD, then you will most probably need to install it manually, then re-compile php by hand.

    That's right. You need to recompile Php manually at the prompt. To enable GD-support configure Php with this swicth --with-gd=/usr/local/src/gd or whatever directory you installed GD on your server. Remember, GD library requires libpng and libjpeg to compile.

    Good luck!

    honestly I never manually installed php on a linux system.
    And I am not sure which procedure I must follow

    I think it should be similar to that-

    cd /mytemp/installdir
    wget http://php.net/php-4.3.10.zip

    unzip php..zip

    ./configure
    ./make
    ./make install

    httpd restart



    is there anything else that I must do?

    Thanks
