How to Enable the GD Image Library for Wordpress?

I’ve used the simple one-click set up for WordPress, and can’t get plug in galleries to upload images.

It looks like I need to enable the GD Image Library for Wordpress on the server (GD PHP extension).

How do I enable this?

  • This article will help you install php-gd (if not already installed)

    Also, for uploads to work you will need to change permissions of your directory to 777.

    Recommended method is to upload your files from SFTP and then import them from WP!

    Hope this helps!
