I have noticed that curl_multi does not work with some of my machines running php 
I have confirmed the same behavior in both Debian unstable and Ubuntu (installed 
13.10 beta that comes with 5.5.3 so I could see if it has the same problem)
I noticed that when I installed php 5.5.3 on Ubuntu 12.04 (using libcurl 7.22 -
everything works as expected so my guess would be that this is some sort of 
incompatibility with the newer curl version (both Ubuntu 13.10 and Debian 
unstable are running curl 7.32 (
My own POC script simply creates empty files and the sample from doesn't

Thank you for your interest in PHP.

What kind of problem do you have ?

I tried your test script on php-5.5.3 with curl & curl 7.33 and everything seems to work as expected. Did you build php and libcurl by yourself ? or did you used the Ubuntu/Debian version ?
