Dynamic PHP Imaging

software development

#1

Hello!
I am considering switching to DreamHost, but I first wanted to make sure that the PHP setup has GD support, as I intend to use the dynamic imaging features of PHP.

I looked around a bit and didn’t see anything one way or the other, but I didn’t want to discount DreamHost that easily since it’s by far at the top of my list.

Could anyone shed some light for me?

Yep, GD is supported in the default installations of PHP on Dreamhost:

In PHP 4.4.7:
gd
GD Support enabled
GD Version bundled (2.0.28 compatible)
FreeType Support enabled
FreeType Linkage with freetype
GIF Read Support enabled
GIF Create Support enabled
JPG Support enabled
PNG Support enabled
WBMP Support enabled
XBM Support enabled

In PHP 5.2.2
gd
GD Support enabled
GD Version bundled (2.0.34 compatible)
FreeType Support enabled
FreeType Linkage with freetype
FreeType Version 2.1.7

Note You can also compile/install your own version of PHP on Dreamhost. :wink:
