    Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error.

    Couldn't activate WP-Stats-Dashboard: CURL extension not found. CURL is required to be installed on your server. Please ask your hosting provider to install PHP CURL for you.

    .... I dont understand can somebody explain it to me pls

    Ask your hosting provider to enable CURL for PHP to get the plugin up and running.

    For most servers this is enabled by default.

    PHP CURL is a module for php that is used to retrieve data from external sites.

    Here is some technical info on how to do it:

    (rather ask your hosting provider)

    Hello Dave, or anyone who is smart. lol I am very new at websites, and was working on my site. I decided I wanted to add a plugin for stats. this one seemed awesome. After installing it, I just get a blank page. This is scary. I need to be able to log in again.

    It's quite sad, but we all start somewhere eh? I want to delete the last plugin I installed. I tried to see if I can enable CURL for PHP, but it seems I don't even think I know who my hosting service is, could be Nexx but I purchased my domain at webpricedright.com. So, I guess I'll just settle for deleting the plugin, sorry :( Hopefully by now, everyone knows I'm a noob. Can someone help, please?

    Ok, so I figured it out. Im sure you all believed in me... I went to my Hosting Service, (NEXX) and went through the files, and found the one with "the plugin name" and deleted it. It seemed so simple... and this clearly made me feel like a pro. I really want to learn more! This is awesome.
