Questions before buying » Requirements » PHP 4.3 or higher with GD library

How will I know if my hostings PHP supports the GD library?

Normally this is standard, but if you want to be on the safe side, you can test it with a small script:

  1. Upload this small text file phpinfo.php to your hosting space so that you can access it via your webbrowser
  2. Open your webbrowser and type in the following URL:
    http://www.example.com/phpinfo.phpSubstitute www.example.com with your actual domain name.
  3. You will see the PHP configuration of your server host.
    Search for the paragraph GD. You will see the version and the supported grafic formats of the included GD library.

What is the GD library?
