How to install the php gd library?

Hi, I'm new to using cPanel, and I've worked all day trying to install the php gd library. Could someone give me a hand?

cPanel Version 11.24.5-RELEASE
cPanel Build 37946
Theme x3
Apache version 2.2.11 (Unix)
PHP version 5.2.9
MySQL version 5.1.30
Architecture i686
Operating system Linux
php 5

Thanks!!

Just go to WHM -> Software -> EasyApache, when you get to step 5, click Exhaustive Options List then scroll down under PHP and check GD. Then proceed with the build process. This will install GD.

If you do not have access to WHM (or don't know what it is), contact your hosting company to do this for you.

Hi,

For the GD Library support for your server you need to recompile the apache service of your server. For that have a check with these steps:

1: Login into WHM -> Software -> EasyApache [Apache Update]
2: During the build profile in step 5 you can find an option of set exhaustive list from where there will be one option of GD L:ibrary.
3: Select that option and rebuild the apache.
4: Restart cPanel and http services.
