If you see the message on your website saying image rotation is not supported by your web host or face any other issue regarding images, then it could have been caused by the absence of the PHP extensions “gd” and “imagick”. You can easily enable those extensions from your cPanel account. For that, first, you need to know the PHP version set for your website. For this tutorial, we assume you are using php7.2 on your website. To enable those PHP extensions, login to cPanel and follow the following instructions:

  1. Click on the Select PHP version from the Software section.
  2. If you see the PHP version set to native, you need to change it to 7.2 (assuming your website is set to 7.2)
  3. Check the extensions “gd” and “imagick” from the list to enable them.

The settings will be automatically set. The issue that you faced with manipulating the image will be resolved now.
