Your web server's PHP installation does not included a required module (Curl).

Posted July 14, 2021 114 views


I have a droplet that is running WordPress 5.7.2 on ubuntu 20.04.2 and PHP Version 7.4.21.

CURL module was already installed in server but the WordPress throws a warning like it was not included.

How to resolve this?

Note that, it looks like that you do not have the PHP Curl module installed for the current PHP version that you are using.

The best way to verify if this is the case is to create a PHP info file with the following content and then visit it via your browser:



To install the module you could run the following command:

sudo apt install php7.4-curl

Hope that this helps.

Hello, @Akash0920

As Bobby mentioned it looks like CURL is not installed for the current version, You can install it with the command that Bobby provided and then restart Apache.

  • sudo service apache2 restart
