cURL extension is disabled on your server

December 21, 2015 5.1k views

I have a plugin installed on my wordpress website that is not working and it's saying "cURL extension is disabled on your server."

Could someone please help me out with this? I really understand absolutely nothing about coding or anything about DigitalHost. I paid someone to transfer my website from Godaddy to here. So I ask that you guys who are willing to help me out to please tell me step by step, since I possess absolutely no knowledge about anything. Thank you all so very much in advance.

Hey there,

What you're most likely looking for is sudo apt-get install php5-curl. You'll want to restart Apache after installing curl - sudo service apache2 restart.

After that you should be set!

Thank you and please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you.

Happy coding,

That doesn't do it. Also I have php7. What is the latest trick?
