php_gd.dll not found in php.ini !!

Link to this post 22 Feb 11

I installed PHP successfully on my Ubuntu 10.04
I checked the installation with phpinfo() and saw that the GD has been installed successfully :

GD Support enabled
GD Version 2.0
FreeType Support enabled
FreeType Linkage with freetype
FreeType Version 2.3.11
T1Lib Support enabled
GIF Read Support enabled
GIF Create Support enabled
JPEG Support enabled
libJPEG Version 6b
PNG Support enabled
libPNG Version 1.2.42
WBMP Support enabled

but gd functions appears to be not enabled on my server, so I tried to change the ";extension=php_gd.dll" line in php.ini and remove the ";" but the php.ini did not contain this line!

What should I do now? Is there any missing part?
Please help me.

Your first issue is that dll files are for windows systems, they are not used in Linux based systems.

There is a php50gd package in the ubuntu repos for easy downloads, you can find more information at
