  • The GD Graphics Library is for dynamically manipulating images. For Ubuntu you should install it manually:

    That's all, you can verify that GD support loaded:

    php -i | grep -i gd

    Output should be like this:

    GD Support => enabled
    GD headers Version => 2.1.1-dev
    gd.jpeg_ignore_warning => 0 => 0

    and finally restart your apache:

    sudo service apache2 restart
