when i navigate to <webserver>/install.php i get the error:
"There is no PHP GD extension on the server (no PHP graphics functionality). Officially ocPortal requires this, and a number of very useful features will not work without it (such as automatic thumbnail generation)."

Any help resolving this error message would be greatly appreciated.

Ask your host to install it. Just tell them that it is required for ocPortal and you shouldn't have any problems.

Do you have a Samsung Galaxy S / Galaxy S II ? If so, why not check out my ScreenFree FM Radio .

There was a tutorial posted on a popular site about installing ocPortal using WAMP, so I think that might be where the problem lies. If that's the case look to see how people install GD on WAMP (I wouldn't know).

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
