The following request sent by OpenLayers :

gets the response "loadOutputFormat(): General error message. OUTPUTFORMAT
clause references driver GD/JPEG, but this driver isn't configured."

This seems to have started last week sometime. It doesn't seem to be
anything in my code, because it is occurring in older versions of our
website that didn't have the issue.

The following, which is the recommended by OpenLayers also causes the
same error message:

on the Discuss Mailing list Steven Woodbridge notes as follows:
"OK, interestingly that url works fine for me! But if I SHIFT-refresh a
bunch of times I can get that error. So it seems that the load balancer is
hitting one/some? server that is miss configured."

"Also if you change the url to request image%2fpng it will still generate
the error because the mapfile has defined in it and OUTPUTFORMAT with
GD/JPEG defined but the version of mapserver installed on the server is
NOT built with GD/JPEG support.

The mapfile needs to be updated or a new version of mapserver needs to be
installed with GD/JPEG support add to the ./configure command when it is
built. "
