PHP-GD ownCloud issue

General Tech Bugs & Fixes

Max. 2000 characters



( 6 months ago )


I'm trying to set up my ownCloud for my school but there is just 1 problem


PHP module GD not installed.


Please ask your server administrator to install the module.

PHP modules have been installed, but they are still listed as missing?


Please ask your server administrator to restart the web server.

I have installed php5-gd like 4 times from different sources, restarted Apache every time, I have even reinstalled Ubuntu server in my machine (cause of the mess of installing and reinstalling stuff)


I'm new on this. I started Ubuntu like 1 month ago (love it) and trying to set up the server for 1 week ago actually.


I have to say I'm really annoyed cause of the php-gd cause I have fixed every "problem" I have gotten during the installation of other stuff but PHP gd beat me. All solutions I have found are related to installation, but I have the impression that maybe I'm missing something in Apache2. I don't feel like not installing ownCloud or change OS just cause ownCloud tells me "PHP module GD not installed."


I'm working on Ubuntu server 14.04 following this tutorial How To install own cloud also tried with the ownCloud install instructions of the own cloud page, but have to say this:


All downloads OK


All updates OK


Repository stuff No Errors all OK


Tried with PHP 5 and PHP 7 modules


Used Ubuntu server 16 before learning that 14.04 was better ( ironic)


Apache running with no problems (access via XXX.XXX.X.X and I get Apache2 Ubuntu Default Page)


I have access to ownCloud ( on just see the errors




Please update your question with the version of owncloud you're trying, and also the error that's output from owncloud


I have tried with the ownCloud 7,8, and 9.0.2 (which is the actual stable version).

The only error I get is this screen: ownCloud - GD module missing screeshot
