Enabling/installing GD extension? --without-gd
How does one enable (or perhaps I need to install) GD when my phpinfo() output in "Configure Command" says; --without-gd ?
I also have nothing in my phpinfo() output "Core" that lists "gd"
PHP Version 5.2.4 on AWS.

if you are on a Debian based server (such as Ubuntu) you can run the following command:
apt-get install php5-gd
Then once it is complete run:
This will restart your server and enable GD in PHP.
If you are on another type of system you will need to use something else (like yum install) or compile directly into PHP.

For PHP7.0 use (php7.1-gd, php7.2-gd and php7.3-gd are also available):
sudo apt-get install php7.0-gd
and than restart your webserver.
