Critical error - the following php extensions are required and not installed - gd



I have done a fresh install of froxlor and I got this error during the install, in particular when i got to the webinstaller. I do not know if this is a bug or just something that I should sort myself (which I did).




My system

Hostname: froxlor
Serversoftware: Apache/2.4.52 (Ubuntu)
PHP-Version: 8.1.2-1ubuntu2.11
MySQL server version: 5.5.5-10.6.12-MariaDB-0ubuntu0.22.04.1
Webserver interface: FPM-FCGI

My Solution

In the file /etc/php/8.1/cli/php.ini I enabled GD and then restarted apache2, reloaded the page and I could continue.

;extension=gd --> extension=gd


Is this a bug I need to report on the tracker?

I re-checked, restarting the apache2 service fixes the issue, editing the php.ini was irrelevant. Does this need an extra step in your script?

I used:

  • Ubuntu Server (minimal) LTS 22.04.2
  • I did not use apt or apt-get to install any php modules
  • In the logs GD does appear
