Open SSH

  1. First Install CURL by typing sudo apt-get install curl
  2. Then Restart Apache by typing sudo service apache2 restart
  3. Then Install PHP5 CURL by typing sudo apt-get install php5-curl
  4. will prompt to install… type y or yes!
  5. Then Restart Apache by typing sudo service apache2 restart Done!

Now you should be fine!

if you upgraded to php 7.0, make sure to use;

sudo apt-get install php7.0-curl

instead of …

sudo apt-get install php5-curl

It works, but i need to restart apache

 sudo apt-get intall php5-curl

/etc/init.d/apache2 restart
