test after installing php-gd

For some time now our wordpress has not been cooperating. When we upload images it never allows us to resize them on the fly, but rather only allows full size to be uploaded. Needless to say, this causes much larger than required images to appear on the blog and this requires post-post editing.
Well, after more google research it seemed to have something to do with php and the package gd

The gd graphics library allows your code to quickly draw images complete with lines, arcs, text, multiple colors, cut and paste from other images, and flood fills, and to write out the result as a PNG or
JPEG file. This is particularly useful in Web applications, where PNG and JPEG are two of the formats accepted for inline images by most browsers. Note that gd is not a paint program.

Well, gd was already install and uptodate. That led to:

The php-gd package contains a dynamic shared object that will add support for using the gd graphics library to PHP.

So a quick “yum install php-gd” and a quick restart of the apache webserver and presto! It works!
We can now resize images on upload without having to reedit.
