ERROR: cURLis not installed. - on Installation Wizard

cURL is not installed. Contact your hosting provider to have cURL installed.

I'm trying to use PS300 (fir the 1st time) with my localhost/DWCS3, but I get above msg.

I searched the web and found a cURL download site, which I did download it (but I don't know if it's in the right location)

What do I do to get past this error?? I searched the forum and am surprised that this problem has not affected others.

PS: I have just signed up with a hosting company, but it seems like I should develop the site before uploading it to public view, that's why I'm trying to use the localhost, as I have done with other sites.

in the php.ini file, you need to enable the cURL extesnion.

find the following:
;extension=php_curl.dll

and change it to:
extension=php_curl.dll


you will have to restart the server after making the change.

Thank for the speedy advice:
This is what I did:
removed the ; from in front of extension=php_curl.dll in the followiung docs that were in the bin folder of the WAMP folder:
- php.ini
- php.ini-development
- php.ini-production
And restarted the WAMP server twice (and DW once). I still have the same error.


Did I need to download the curl software? These are the file names of what I downloaded:
curl_7.19.7
curl_7.19.4-win64-ssl-sspi
IF I did need to download cURL, did I get the wrong curl selection? I have 'ran' both of the downloads.

any other suggestions
thanks

PS2 and 3 not working for me

I downloaded PS200 to see if I would still have the same problem with the cURL as PS300. When I downloaded the site exactly as I had done with PS300, using localhost testing server, I get these error msgs when I tried to see index.php in a browser:
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Warning: mysql_pconnect() [function.mysql-pconnect]: php_network_getaddresses: getaddrinfo failed: No such host is known. in C:\wamp\www\PowerStore200\Connections\localhost.php on line 9

Warning: mysql_pconnect() [function.mysql-pconnect]: [2002] php_network_getaddresses: getaddrinfo failed: No such host is kn (trying to connect via tcp://Please type your database hostname:3306) in C:\wamp\www\PowerStore200\Connections\localhost.php on line 9

Warning: mysql_pconnect() [function.mysql-pconnect]: php_network_getaddresses: getaddrinfo failed: No such host is known. in C:\wamp\www\PowerStore200\Connections\localhost.php on line 9

Fatal error: php_network_getaddresses: getaddrinfo failed: No such host is known. in C:\wamp\www\PowerStore200\Connections\localhost.php on line 9
------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is the code in localhost.php in the Connections file: (lie 9 is the second to last one)

<?php
# FileName="Connection_php_mysql.htm"
# Type="MYSQL"
# HTTP="true"
$hostname_localhost = "Please type your database hostname";
$database_localhost = "please type your database name";
$username_localhost = "please type your username";
$password_localhost = "please type your password";
$localhost = mysql_pconnect($hostname_localhost, $username_localhost, $password_localhost) or trigger_error(mysql_error(),E_USER_ERROR);
?>

I don't know how to resolve this. However, I only want to resolve this if I can't get PS300 to work. BTW- the PS200 site exactly as downloaded with the PowerStore200 as the site name (as I am using this as a test site, as first)

Also - when you click the link to the PS2 start up guide, you get PS3.

Please advise how this can be resolved.

Update

Please note that I changed the localhost code from my last post to this below (with variations) and when I viewed the index page in the browswer, the header did appear, along with the error msg (below this localhost code).
<?php
# FileName="Connection_php_mysql.htm"
# Type="MYSQL"
# HTTP="true"
$hostname_localhost = "localhost";
$database_localhost = "localhost";
$username_localhost = "root";
$password_localhost = "password";
$localhost = mysql_pconnect($hostname_localhost, $username_localhost, $password_localhost) or trigger_error(mysql_error(),E_USER_ERROR);
?>
==============
Deprecated: Function split() is deprecated in C:\wamp\www\PowerStore200\CSSMenuWriter\cssmw_home\menu.php on line 16
==============
This is the code that starts at line 16 of the menu.php
$WA_ddsArray = split("/", $WA_thisFile);
$WA_dotDotSlash = "";
for ($n=0; $n<sizeof($WA_ddsArray)-1; $n++) {
$WA_dotDotSlash .= "../";
}

I haven't gone any farther because I don't know what to change.
I hope you can help

Check Jason's post here. Hopefully that will help.

With regard to your earlier post about cURL, if your php.ini has been been changed (by removing the ';') and the cURL error still shows, it is likely that the php_curl.dll file is missing from your \php\ext folder. Some Windows-installer (.msi) packages of PHP don't do a 'full' install with all the extensions.

You could try installing the latest version of PHP for your WAMP server from the WAMP add-ons page here

Thank you very much for the reply

Yeah! I thought I was at a dead end again. After doing what you suggested (and more) I clicked on the WAMPSERVER icon and turned on the curl extension in php. All is green now on the installation wizard!
Thanks again!! I would never have known that everything for php that was needed might not be included in the php download I had.

UPDATE - phpmyadmin

I hope someone might be able to answer this.

phpmyadmin is not working after I made the changes I needed to - to get curl extension, to get PS3 to work, which was:
- download php5.3.1
- remove the semicolon from in front of all of this code: extension=php_curl.dll (in various php.ini docs)
- checked the PHP curl extension in the WAMPSERVER 2.0

Does anyone have any idea why this would stop phpadmin from working. mysql is still working because I can work with it in Workbench.

I can't log into the server at the PS3 site (even though I;m entering the exact information that is contained in the doc in the connection folder)
And now I can't even work with my original site.

On WAMPSERVER engine, usually running at the taskbar, left click>PHP>PHP Extension. Look at the topand you are going to see php_curl. Make sure it is checked. If not, click on it and restart WAMPSERVER and it will be installed and this is not going to stop phpadmin. That is how I fixed mine.
