You may be able to use http://php.net/dl to load the extension (you'll need to build it to be compatible with your host and then upload it) but it's highly unlikely they'll have the dl function enabled. Your best bet is to ask them to add it to their environment. -Stuart -- Stuart Dallas 3ft9 Ltd http://3ft9.com/ > On 4/29/2011 9:26 AM, Stuart Dallas wrote: > > On Friday, 29 April 2011 at 03:33, Mitch wrote: > > I have written a lightweight, easy to use photo album "system" in > > > HTML/PHP/MySQL.In addition to the Photo Album side I have written a > > > series of Admin Utilities to manage it with.
