Suggestions:

1. stop and restart your server
2. run phpinfo() and look at the 'gd' section of the report. First line should read "GD Support enabled ". Second line "GD Version bundled ...."

hi Ronald,

thanks for the reply, i've already restarted the server many times.., and still my phpinfo() doesn't display the 'gd' section. What i found is only this

Configure Command = cscript /nologo configure.js "--enable-snapshot-build" "--with-gd=shared"
i'm sorry, because this is just the first time i work with this php extension, and don't know how to configure it so that PHP can able to load it. Right now i'm still searching the web for any instructions on how to make php_gd2.dll be loaded by PHP.

anyone out there can help me?

i still can't figure out why my php.ini can't load the php_gd2.dll extension
here is my php.ini configuration

the extension_dir was set correctly
; Directory in which the loadable extensions (modules) reside.
extension_dir = "c:\PHP\ext"
the php_gd2.dll extension was uncommented
;
;extension=php_mbstring.dll
;extension=php_bz2.dll
;extension=php_curl.dll
;extension=php_dba.dll
;extension=php_dbase.dll
;extension=php_exif.dll
;extension=php_fdf.dll
;extension=php_filepro.dll
extension=php_gd2.dll
i've already put the php_gd2.dll file in my extension folder (c:\PHP\ext) and i restarted my server many times but still can't find any gd section in my phpinfo.

this error message always appear at the bottom of my page.
PHP Warning: PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library 'c:\PHP\ext\php_gd2.dll' - The specified module could not be found. in Unknown on line 0
anyone knows how to solve this problem? or anyone had encountered this problem and find solution? please help.., i am new with this php extension.

thanks in advance.

I believe you have set up the extension_dir variable incorrectly, try swapping the direction of your slashes:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. extension_dir = "c:/PHP/ext/"

Could you post back a little more information about your system? Things like what web-server you are using as well as they type of php installation you used.

thanks for the help anyway Motoma,

I already have PHP now with GD enabled.., what i just did was to install the lower version of PHP, the PHP 4.4.4 and downloaded it's packages.., and check my phpinfo and there's GD instantly enabled.., although not really instant i still configure php.ini so that PHP will load the php_gd2.dll extensions.

anyway this is not the last time i will post a question about php in this forum.., see you soon. thanks..(^_^)

It all has to do with the version of the GD dll. Download a php pack with your version and all extensions and IIS won't cry anymore.
