gd php extension not available and does not install
I have created a vps with Ubuntu 8.04 LTS 64-bit Basic Installation and ISPManagerPro (I'm on and using a Drupal installation)

Drupal reports that 'The GD image toolkit requires that the GD module for PHP be installed and configured properly.'

This should be installed as default in PHP 5+. is not listed in ISPManagerPro under Server Configuration > PHP Extensions.

When I click the CD icon at the top to install new extensions I can select one called php5-gd-5.2.4-2ubuntu5.6 but when I do so it doesn't complete installation. What happens is that the spinning disc icon doesn't go away and the list shows and status unknown, when I revisit the list the is again not showing.

Your help is appreciated in getting GD for PHP installed / enabled.

Try to install manually from ssh by this commands:


sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install php5-gd

Thanks slava, that solved the problem: I used your commands and then I was able to configure image handling in Drupal admin area.
