Php5-gd for pfsense 2.0.1 captive portal captcha
Hello, I have a problem activating php5-gd in pfsense shell.
What I did:
1. pkg_add -r ftp://ftp-archive.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD-Archive/ports/i386/packages-8.1-release/Latest/php5-gd.tbz
2. After download complete I type rehash (as stated here http://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/Installing_FreeBSD_Packages)
3. I uploaded a php file containing phpinfo() under captive portal file manager and accessed it through browser and still the GD was not present.
I want to use GD for captcha in my custom login page.
Any idea what I missed?
my PHP Version is 5.2.17
first, the version of the gd module would have to match exactly the version of PHP we include, 5.2.17.
That file you linked is for php5-5.3.2_1
If you manage to compile/find the right package, you'd still have to tell it to be loaded, it doesn't automatically load every module. Search around for "php_dynamodules" here on the forum for info on how to make that happen.
Thanks for that info, btw is the GD available in the latest release of pfsense?
No, we don't use GD for anything like that on pfSense, so it's not something we include.
