Hi there @SteveEGL,

If you are on an Ubuntu server you could do that by running the following command:

  1. sudo apt install php-gd

After that, you would need to restart your webserver:

  • In case that you are using Apache run:
  1. sudo systemctl restart apache2
  • In case that you are using Nginx run:
  1. sudo systemctl restart nginx
