  • PHP Error: Extension gd is not found


    I'm having issues installing EspoCRM on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.

    During the database setup page, I receive the error
    PHP Error: Extension gd is not found
    The server is running PHP8:
    PHP 8.0.10 (cli) (built: Aug 26 2021 15:49:49) ( NTS )
    GD Support => enabled
    GD headers Version => 2.3.0
    I have browsed this forum and Google for a few hours without avail.
    Since "gd" is not supported by the search function because it's too short, I had to search for various other terms and then browse dozens of pages, but wasn't able to find anything.

    Thank you.

    Hi, you need to enable (uncomment) php gd extension in php.ini file

      To extend the former answer, here some information, what gd library means.

        You probably using wrong search term, searching for "PHP GD" will give you plenty of information but who care.

        Not sure how you set it up on your ubuntu, hopefully you have some sort of "Control Panel" where editing these type of thing might be easier for newbie, if you do have a Control Panel, it probably under PHP option, in there there is probably an "Extensions" setting, then you would find something call "GD" and just tick that checkbox, save, wait a bit and try again.

        Perhaps lowering the version might also help, I don't think PHP 8 is official supported until EspoCRM v7 (which is currently in Alpha status)
