    Question GD2 inst/config help needed

    I am running a small web design and hosting (as reseller) business using:

    WHM 9.1.0

    General server information:

    Operating system Linux
    Kernel version 2.4.20-29.7.progeny.3
    Apache version 1.3.29 (Unix)
    PERL version 5.6.1
    Path to PERL /usr/bin/perl
    Path to sendmail /usr/sbin/sendmail
    PHP version 4.3.4
    MySQL version 4.0.18-standard
    cPanel Build 9.1.0-STABLE 93
    Theme cPanel X v2.3.0
    cPanel Pro (RC8)

    Recently after a script installation and testing a problem with GD2 library came up:

    GD2 Probe:

    If everything is okay you should see a green mark below,
    otherwise contact your hosting provider.

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function: imagecreatefromjpeg() in /home/perform/public_html/models/images/test/gdtest.php on line 23

    Try to contact my host (Id like to mention that since now had no problem with previous probs. ex. Image Magic installation) but after about 10 mails no answer!

    After a small self learning on the web about GD2 library (h*tp://* I noticed that I am using php 4.3.x, and it includes a version of gd as "standard equipment. Your GD FAQ says: "according to rumor the self-extracting installer does not include gd for some reason; comments from those who find otherwise are welcome." In my binary installation of PHP 4.3.3, I found that php_gd2.dll is available, it's just not enabled by default. To turn it on, the user may simply uncomment the line "extension=php_gd2.dll" in php.ini. Hope this helps people who, like me, saw the FAQ entry and immediately started dreading the prospect of building everything from source -- something Windows doesn't seem to make very easy for people with little C/C++ experience. Updated 12/06/03: Windows users DO get gd included when they install the convenient self-extracting version of PHP, however they must uncomment the line extension=php_gd2.dll in the file php.ini. Thanks to Alan MacDougall for clarifying this. " (full faq: h*tp://*

    Any help on this?

    as a reseller, you cant do anything. As your host recompile apache with php and GD2, it's the only way.

    if they can't do it, you may consider to move to another one :|

    gate2vn is there a way i can do it my self or hire a sys admin to do the job for me.
    Moving to a new host is in my mind but have to schedule it (there are about 40 web's on web server).
