Depending on the OS on your server, you can install curl:

Ubuntu - sudo apt-get install curl libcurl3 libcurl3-dev php5-curl

CentOS - yum search curl

Based on the results you get back, you can install the curl package you want. If you want to install curl for php. You should type: yum install php-curl

I hope that helps
Hi is process is same for php curl and cURL installation?

please help
curl (the binary itself) is installed on all droplets by default. You can install the php5-curl package to install the php curl extension on Ubuntu/Debian.

this worked for me:

sudo apt-get install curl libcurl3 libcurl3-dev php5-curl

but remember to restart Apache:

service apache2 reload
