LAMP droplet, application says two php extensions not enabled but php -m says they are

I have a web app I wanted to deploy. During the web-install of the app, it has a prep screen in the beginning which checks if there are any dependencies missing, etc… One thing it checks are if a handful of php extensions are installed. It green-lighted all but two - “curl” and “dom”.

Oddly, “php -m” lists both of those among the list. Any idea what’s going on here? The setup procedure which checks for these(and failed those two) is semi-real-time so if I make changes and refresh the window, it will pick them up.

Thanks in advance!

Figured it out. The phpx.x-curl version I had installed was not the correct one!
