How to enable curl, on Ubuntu LAMP installation

By: Kevin | September 9, 2014

So you installed LAMP but you’re missing the cURL library. I had the same problem. By default cURL is not included with the basic installation of LAMP on Ubuntu Server 14.04. To add the cURL library simply execute this command

[php]
sudo apt-get install curl libcurl3 libcurl3-dev php5-curl
[/php]

Once the installation is complete be sure to restart Apache2.

[php]sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart[/php] OR [php]sudo service apache2 restart[/php]

Cheers!
