WordPress Error: Error cropping images [FIX]

I recently installed WP on a new server (this one!), and everything worked, except when I tried uploading images, it always failed in the cropping process, with an error message along the lines of “error cropping image.”

In a google search I found a reference from someone with the same problem, and managed to apply their advice to my Ubuntu 18.04 build (different library name, I had to do some translating.) You need to install a library called php-gd, and restart your web server, and the problem vanishes. (At least it did for me!)

  14. Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell
    and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her

    it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!

    had to tell someone!

  17. Long time reader, first time commenter —
    so, thought I’d drop a comment.. — and at the same time ask for a favor.

    Your wordpress site is very simplistic – hope you don’t mind me asking what theme you’re using?
    (and don’t mind if I steal it? :P)

    I just launched my small businesses site –also built
    in wordpress like yours– but the theme slows (!) the
    site down quite a bit.

    In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd”
    on Google (would appreciate any feedback)

    Keep up the good work– and take care of yourself during the coronavirus scare!
