    How to install CURL?

    I tried several methods to activate curl, but nothing until now.

    libcurl is in extension_dir, extension is loaded in php.ini, but something is still going wrong.

    I tried to install with yum, from source, from rpm. nothing.

    this it my error
    Warning: curl_setopt() [function.curl-setopt]: CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION cannot be activated when in safe_mode or an open_basedir...
    from phpinfo():

    safe_mode	Off
    safe_mode_exec_dir	no value
    safe_mode_gid	Off
    safe_mode_include_dir	no value
    Now I saw an error. in php.ini open_basedir = Off , but in phpinfo() I get this

    open_basedir /home/admin/:/tmp:/usr/local/lib/php/

    no ideas

    Try setting the open_basedir to none

    In httpd.conf, in the virtual host entry of the domain add the below line
    php_admin_value open_basedir none


    Below line to php.ini file(but i don't think this will work as the virtualhost entry in apache configuration will override this default value)
    open_basedir = none

    if you have cpanel the best way is:
    to go to whm --> then on your home click software --> click easyapache --> were it says "Begin by selecting a profile to load:" click basic --> then click start customizing based on profile --> select apache 2.0 and click next step --> Check which php version you want to use (pref php 5) and click next step --> click 5.2.8 and then next step --> now you should be on the Short Options List. While you are here i would advise turning zend and ioncube on and click EXHAUSTIVE OPTIONS LIST --> now that your on the Exhaustive Options List scroll down to php 5.2.8 and check mark curl. --> now scroll all the way down to the bottom and click save and build. now let whm build php and apache!. Grab a coffee you deserve it!

    Php compilation through WHM interface can cause issues. It would be better to login to the shell as root and execute the following command there


    You can select the needed options as stated above there.

    Sorry guys, I work wil directadmin(personal reason).

    Thanks for help, problem has been fixed. I just commented that line containing CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION , and seems like script is working well. That line was just to allow redirections.

    And I have installed on vps standlone packages: php , apache, mysql, not compelte like easyapache or lamp
