Before I begin, I'll include that I have spent enough time searching this and also have attempted several solutions none which have labored.

System Info:

Home windows 7 Professional (x86, 32 bit )

Apache2 ready to go C:Program FilesApache Software FoundationApache2.2

PHP 5.3.8 C:Program FilesPHP Also works. by hand set up httpd.conf make it possible for php, observe that php is working, aside from curl.

I've enabled curl during my php.ini C:Program FilesPHPphp.ini

This really is close to the finish of my php.ini

[PHP]   
extension_dir = "ext"  
[PHP_CURL]  
extension=php_curl.dll

Note additionally that the file C:Program FilesPHPextphp_curl.dll is available!

I've restarted the apache server but curl still doesn't function.

a fast test.php file:

<?php 

$curl_conn = curl_init();

?>

observe that I've both php start and finish tags correct stackoverflow just is not showing the beginning php tag. creates: Fatal error: Call to undefined function curl_init() in E:pathto_projecttest.php online 3

I've now spent 3 hrs looking to get curl to operate, google doesn't have assisted, the majority of the solutions appear to involve ensuring the extension=module line in php.ini isn't said out, and as you can tell above it's not said out to ensure that advice does not appear that helped me to.

Any ideas could be appreciated because this is rather frustrating. Thanks!

Perhaps you have replicated cURL dependency files:

  libeay32.dll
  ssleay32.dll

to C:\Windows\System32 folder?

Maybe PHP cannot find both of these files to operate cURL extension.
