[PAYH] GD image library support?

Hi
I have installed a guestbook on the new PAYH server and the script requires.
" a version of PHP compiled with GD image library support, most PHP installations will have this. GD is required in particular for the generation of the captcha image."
The guestbook works on the old system but the captcha part does not work on the PAYH server. Does anybody know if this is supported?

Yes, the PAYH server has GD support at version 2.0 or higher (and I've used it).

I remember a test phpbb3 installation complaining about imagemagick not being found, does your script rely on this?

Re: [PAYH] GD image library support?

I have just tried moving my Gallery 2 site over, and everything works fine except for imagemagick.  I guess the path is different to the old cgi server.  At the moment I am trying /usr/bin - has anyone any idea what the path should be set to?
Incidentally GD seems to work fine with Gallery 2.
NetPBM also reports faults, again probably a path issue.

I suspect imagemagick isn't installed on the PAYH servers. Perhaps something for support to look into on Monday.
Do you need to specify absolute paths for the applications you mentioned?

If it's not on PAYH at the moment, could you not install it in your own area?
