I’ve moved over to AWS and I’m running a fresh Amazon Linux 2 instance. I’ve got wordpress loaded and I try to crop an image for my theme’s header and I get “There has been an error cropping your image“.
After a little research, the obvious answer is to install php-gd and restart apache. This did NOT work for me. I did it about 5 times and checked my phpinfo to make sure php-gd was installed and it was.
After about an hour, I said I will restart the whole instance. That fixed it for me, still have no idea what service was causing the hang up.
