imagecopyresampled() PHP Function – Dummy Explained

You probably know this function needs to have GD enabled. If you dont know how just google how to enable it on your server.

Here is the function: imagecopyresampled(destination_resource,image_resource,destination_x,destination_y,src_x, src_y, destination_width,destination_height,src_width,src_height);

Run down below of the parameters:
destination_resource = destination resource is the container of the image, meaning this will be the final dimension of your image and contains the actual image, think of it as a canvas for your paint.

Drupal 6* – HTTP Request fail status on WAMP

Lately I got this error when I freshly installed Drupal 6. I googled and google how to fix the problem.

All you got to do is navigate through your windows file system if your using windows look for the folder c:/window/system32/drivers/etc/ and open “hosts” file , you must be an admin to be able to change this file.

If you are running Windows vista/7 , right click on notepad and choose “run as administrator” and look for that hosts file. Uncomment the bit where it says “127.0.0.1” removing the # number sign.

Reload the page and the error should now disappear.

Babayu!
