Enable curl in XAMPP on Windows XP


By default cURL diabled in XAMPP. To work the cURL Library you have to modify the php.ini files in your XAMPP folder. For this follow the steps posted here.

Step 1 – Open the following .ini files in your notepad.  (Note: You could not directly open the .ini files. So First go to Notepad and locate the following files)

  1. C:\Program Files\xampp\apache\bin\php.ini
  2. C:\Program Files\xampp\php\php.ini
  3. C:\Program Files\xampp\php\php4\php.ini

Step 2 – Uncomment the following line on those php.ini files by removing the semicolon ( ; ).



;extension=php_curl.dll - Before uncommenting

extension=php_curl.dll – After uncommenting.

Step 3 – After uncommenting, save the files. and restart the Apache Server.  or Restart your computer. Thats all.

Before, Really I don’t know about cURL Library.  But I have to enable it for redesigning the DonGana.com files.  I googled about this, and I got the solution from Tildemark blogs. I think this will very helpfull for my readers.
