Installing cURL

hi, how do i install curl for my dreamhost account? i already downloaded curl but seems like i´m way too dumb. i basically need it to avoid the “allow_url_fopen” problem.

any help (a step-by-step guide maybe?) is highly appreciated.

regards, jogol

You don’t need to do anything; cURL is already installed on all DreamHost servers. :slight_smile:


As mentioned, it’s already installed. The Dreamhost Wiki has an article with cURL examples.

Read my blog. You know you want to…

yeah of course it is… i just gave up too early. when i tried the 1st example cURL alternative for file_get_contents() it didn´t work. tried the 2nd one and bang! works like a charme.

thanks for you replies. no more self-doubt :slight_smile:
