Logged in as root, I installed the php-gd libraries using
$ yum install php-gd
it said everything worked fine, so i did
$ /etc/init.d/nginx restart
But the code I had been working on still complained of not having the gd libraries and when I went to check the output of
phpinfo there was no 'gd' section.
I should note that
yum list | grep gd shows
gd.i386 2.0.33-9.4.el5_1.1 installed gd-devel.i386 2.0.33-9.4.el5_1.1 installed gdb.i386 6.8-27.el5 installed gdbm.i386 1.8.0-26.2.1 installed php-gd.i386 5.1.6-23.2.el5_3 installed
I also added
extension=gd.so manually to
/etc/php.ini and it is still not showing up or raising an error which leads me to believe my php.ini is not being re-parsed when I restart nginx. Is there something outside of restarting nginx I have to do to get php.ini changes loaded?
I have a fair amount (like 3 years) of ad-hoc server administration experience although no formal training, but I'm relatively new to nginx and have never worked with CentOS before, so any help would be much appreciated.
