Call to undefined function curl_init

Call to undefined function curl_init

Using ecart 5, I have set up a site with static items. I go through the process of putting an item in a cart, then clicking checkout. After filling out the address fields, etc, I click on checkout. Then I get this error:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function curl_init() in C:\xampp\htdocs\sushi\WA_eCart\WA_eCart_USPS_PHP.php on line 124

I'm running Vista, local server (on my computer). Can someone explain to me how to fix this? Gotta meet with client tomorrow and am hoping this is easily solvable.

Thanks,
Chris

ps

I did do this in the php.ini file:

extension=php_curl.dll

(that is, i removed the semi colon, then exited the browser, reloaded the page, and still get the error)

Generally speaking with a manual php install uncommenting the semi colon for the curl extension, then saving the ini file and restarting your web server should be enough to get the module working.

If you cannot get it working like this you will need to refer to your xamp documentation for info on enabling php extensions.

If this is on a local server and a manual install uncommenting the line should activate it. You would need to ensure you are editing the working ini file that is being used by php. To see where the file to edit is you can make a php info page by adding this code to the top of a new or existing php page:

php:
<?php phpinfo(); ?>



In the first set of settings it should list where the active or loaded ini file is located. This is the file that you will need to update.

If this is on a live site or php was installed by an installer you will need to get support from your host or software provider to help you make this update.
