Broken Captcha Image
« on: September 05, 2014, 01:04:39 AM »
So I tried registering an account on my new installation of osDate, and find my captcha image is broken:


I tried reloading a couple of times; it's staying broken. :(

Hi Wolfman,

Check you host has the GD enabled and / or make sure that the script wasn't corrupt from uploading or some image files are missing

Hi WolfMan14,

The GD library is used for dynamic image creation. From PHP we use with the GD library to create GIF, PNG or JPG images instantly from our code. This allows us to do things such as create charts on the fly, created an an anti-robot security image, create thumbnail images, or even build images from other images.

If you are unsure if you have GD library, you can run phpinfo.php in admin to check that GD Support is enabled. If you can't find it I have attached one.
