With a new Cpanel/WHM VPS, there are a few things to work through. One is Cpanel Freetype2 installation. I have a captcha code on a number of my pages, and they were not working. Yes, I had GD graphics installed, but how was I to get Freetype2 installed?

I registered onto the forums.cpanel.net site, and found the answer. Unfortunately it was behind a registration screen, and so had not been Googlable.

So the answer:

  • You can enable Free Type support from WHM » Software » ‘Apache Update’ option.
  • Click on “Load Previous Config” button which will show you the current modules installed
  • scroll down the page and select “Freetype Support”.
  • Start Build.
