how do I enable getimagesize and CURL?

What’s the CentOS server command to enable getimagesize and CURL? Or the command to check if they are enabled? I need these both enabled for a WordPress plugin I’m using.

You can enable those PHP modules by running to following commands:

yum install curl
yum install php-curl

Regarding the getimagesize function, I think that you need to enable allow_url_fopen in your php.ini file. To do that try the following:

  • Run php -i | grep php.ini to find out the location of your php.ini file

  • Edit the file with your favorite editor

  • Look for allow_url_fopen and set it to true

Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby
