I tried to get cURL to work using 4.3.1, and was unable to make it work. I went through all the correct installation procedures and double checked everything. I then remove PHP from the 2 test systems, and install 4.2.3, went through the same steps and cURL now works perfectly.

Thank you for your interest in PHP.

"It doesn't work" is not a good description of a problem.

Sorry, but I am not really a hardcore programmer so I am not sure how I should go about providing more debugging information. I'll try to explain what I experienced though.

I needed to use the cURL function for an ecommerce site, so I decided to enable it. I had been running PHP as an ISAPI plugin to IIS 5.1/5.0. So I went into the php.ini and took out the ; next to the extension, check that my extension folder was correct and saved the ini file. I then according to instructions I read on the web copied ssleay32.dll and libeay32.dll to my %SYSTEMROOT%. Then I restarted IIS using the command line 'iisreset'. I then ran my page using the cURL (that was verified working on another machine) and nothing happened. No errors, no popups, no output from the error trapping code I had in place to grab any cURL errors. Here is an error from my event log:

The HTTP server encountered an unhandled exception while processing the ISAPI Application '
php4ts!php_execute_script + 0x22A

I hope this information has proved to be helpful.

Sorry, I copied the 2 DLL's to my %SYSTEMROOT/SYSTEM32% folder not the $SYSTEMROOT%

I am using Windows XP SP2 along with IIS and PHP 5.1.6 running as an ISAPI module.

For some reason cURL does not work. I have enabled the extension and i get no errors saying that the module could not be located or loaded etc when running either the ISAPI via the web or executing any of the 3 executables that comes with the PHP packages.

Can anyone help with this?
