    if you're using cpanel, i believe there is a scripts/easyapache method to reconfigure and compile apache.

    if not, grab the php tarball from php.net and read the docs from the site
    http://www.php.net/manual/en/install.apache2.php
    perl -le 'print reverse reverse "just another perl hacker"'

    The easyapache script will do both.

    of course, you don't need to use this. thats what the second link was for. apxs lets you recompile apache modules without recompiling apache. the directions in the install file show you how to use this.

    to enable gd you need to recompile php --with-gd as a flag during configuration. the page is a good walkthrough on it.

    For windows its easy - remove the ; from the gd module in the modules section of the config file and restart.

    Should be quite similar on linux??

    Nope... because PHP on unix is not compiled with support of all extensions by default.
    The advantage of this solution? Less module (also less memory needed) so the PHP is more quick...
