Google Maps - More Place Levels Mod Install Issue

Recommended Posts

So what does the error log show as you try to load the google_text_marker.php link?

I should mention I also have a public TNG site that I could upgrade to v. 12 and install the mod and see what happens there. I'm guessing it might be easier to troubleshoot there (if the same error even happens)...

That would probably help - or maybe confuse - if it works there then it still won't explain why it won't work on your local server.

I just tried installing the mod on my public site and it works fine.

I downgraded my localhost mysql to 5.0.12, but that didn't fix the issue. Hmm...

As an experiment, I made google_text_marker.php have the identical text as google_marker.php and it did this:

which is actually pretty close, as it is showing the names and png files. So there must be something in the google_text_marker.php file that creates the error only on the localhost.

I think the issue may have to do a lack of FreeType support in the Mac PHP...

Check the PHP Info page for your local host

TNG Admin ------> Setup ------> Diagnostics tab.

Click the link for PHP Info Screen, and look in the "gd" section of it. This is what mine looks like running on Mac OS X

Notice that FreeType Support is "enabled".

What does yours say?

I was indeed missing Freetype Support. I wasn't able to find out an easy way to add this using the Apache that comes with OSX High Sierra, so I rebuilt my localhost using Homebrew. Installing PHP through Homebrew includes FreeType Support so now the problem is solved. Thanks for your help!
