    Hello Everyone,

    I'm sure someone on this forum probably have the answer to my dilemma.
    I just purchased a Linux Virtual Dedicated Server account on Godaddy and need to have GD2 Library installed on my server. Godaddy refuse to give any type of support or information on installing it.

    Could someone Please give me Step-By-Step instructions on installing & enabling GD2 Library on my server. I don't know how to do it.

    I have PuTTY and WS_FTP.
    My info is:
    Godaddy Virtual Dedicated Server
    Linux Red Hat Fedora Core 4
    PHP Version 5.0.4
    MySql 4.1.20
    Simple Control Panel

    Thanks in advance for any assistance.

    I don't know what the package manager is for RH - FC but I think GD2 is called libgd2... I think you'll have to install that through your package manager.

    Can you please give me some step by step instructions on how to do that? Everytime i ask someone they keep giving me these 1 line responses that doesn't tell me what to do. I am seeking Actual info from someone that has answers that i can act on. I'm a newbie to the linux server.

    The package manager for FC4 is yum.
    You can run
    Code:
    yum search gd2
    to search for GD2 packages, and if you find packages, you can install them like this:
    Code:
    yum install [I]package_name[/I]
