PHP Warning: PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library 'gd' (tried: /opt/remi/php72/root/usr/lib64/php/modules/gd (/opt/remi/php72/root/usr/lib64/php/modules/gd: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory), /opt/remi/php72/root/usr/lib64/php/modules/ (/lib64/ undefined symbol: hb_ft_font_set_load_flags)) in Unknown on line 0
Extension 'gd' not present.

Hey there -

I found a potential fix for you on Stack Overflow. It's an older post, but the fix still should apply.

Basically, what it's saying is that there's an extension line in one of your PHP configuration files that's trying to load that extension, but either the path doesn't exist or there's a permissions error.

Here's a link to the post that will give you more detail:

If you have to install (or re-install) php-gd, this should help you out:
