Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
Any ideas what I need to tweak in my php.ini settings?
open it from your paid server and a dublicate of it on your local server. The GD library may be on your paid server but not on your local server. If you don't have the BD library just download it as it is opensource. I don't think I can post links like that here but Google will hunt it down for you.
on my line 637 of php.ini
Is this a home server or paid web host?
Have you looked at your php info?
Have you read through this post?
Have you tried to modify your php.ini?
Can you post some code examples or your phpinfo
also have you tried xampp? (search for xampp apache friends)
i used to use it and by default most everything worked.
