    install prob

    I am running XP using Apache web server (just for designing purposes). Apache is working, and other than this one error message, PHP works fine too. It says it cant load the php_gd.dll. The book Im using told me to remove the ; from the ;extension=php_gd.dll in the php.ini file. All I need to know is how to fix it or should I just put the ; back? I dont know what php_gd.dll does =0. THANKS

    Do you have the GD library installed on your system?

    I haven't checked the PHP windows binaries lately. You might also need to copy a dll file (or files) from the "dlls" directory to your system directory.

    edit:

    GD provides image manipulation functions. They are usually used to create things like graphical counters on-the-fly.

    I noticed without the ; the images on the php test page wouldn't load so that makes sense. Thanks
