cURL Extension with PHP

PostgresJust a quick update to the last post, a client asked us to look at their shopp system (an e-commerce plugin for Word Press.) The web server needed a couple of extensions, namely GD2 and cURL. After re-running the PHP 5.2.14 installer and changing the installation to include these additional extensions the web server could not be re-started as php_curl.dll kept complaining about a missing zlib.dll. Now the solution turned out to be the need rename the later zlib1.dll, which was in the Apache bin directory, to zlib.dll. (If you are missing the dll altogether, it can be downloaded from http://www.zlib.net.) Phew, that took some looking about for a solution… but the Apache server restarts beautifully now.

    Thank you Dreddy. Hope you found these little snippets helpful. Unfortunately, we do not have much time to write… but we shall endeavor to remedy that situation soon.
