I installed the entropy version of PHP 4.3.6 a few days ago to update
my powerbook (running 10.3), the GD Lib was installed and set-up like
GD Version bundled (2.0.22 compatible)
FreeType Support enabled
FreeType Linkage with freetype

I have used the entropy builds of php and mysql to update my laptop
(running 10.3 Client) and they are fantastic! Unfortunately, they
didn't work when I ran it on the server... but since you seem certain
that it works on the Server version of 10.3, I will try it again.
I also tried the command line, compiling and installing. Very
interesting and mind expanding - but also not successful. I'm sure
there is something I'm overlooking in the process - probably something
simple and obvious!
I do have the info.php script available on the web server and it tells
me that php 4.3.2 is doing its job, but I don't have GD installed.
I will keep pounding away at it. Thanks for the resources! I
appreciate the support
The simplest way to go about this is to run Marc Liyanage's PHP
create a new page called info.php. then add this code:
make sure that it is in your ~/Sites directory somwhere. then,
navigate to it. it will list everything that is compiled in. if GD
isn't there, i think Marc Lyniage's (entropy.ch) verison of php has it
Fortunately for you, he's already included GD support in the package.
- rebuild PHP manually, using command-line. You'll have to find
yourself instructions on how to to build PHP with GD support-- I
believe they are somewhere on developer.apple.com or Apple's support
site -- it requires you to get intimate with the PHP rebuilding
process in Terminal, may or may not be intimidating and/or worth-it.
