    Are you on a home computer or a remote server? Chances are GD is installed already if you are on a remote server that a company has set up for you.


    check php.ini file whether the "extension=php_gd2" is enabled. In php.ini ifle, there is one line related to gd extension.

    When i go to PHP Configuration in the webmin it shows "/etc/php5/apache2/php.ini" so does that mean php5 is installed?

    And how do i continue? i tryed 'y', '[y]', continue, but none work :p

    that just means that you have a version of php installed. Not necessarily php5. TO continue you just hit y and then press enter

    i put y and get:

    bash: y: command not found


    I put yes, it loads for a good minute and then its just a white screen with nothing on it.

    Just checked and PHP 5.1.2 is installed on my server.
