  • Hi @techeshta,

    Can you ask your host for assistance in enabling or installing the cURL extension for PHP?

    If you have access to root access on your host, you can run these commands:

    1. sudo apt-get install curl
    2. sudo apt-get install php5-curl
    3. sudo service apache2 restart

    While trying your step 2,

    It throwing this –

    Package php5-curl is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source

    E: Package ‘php5-curl’ has no installation candidate

    Hi again!

    If you could provide me with your system details (Linux distro and version, for example Ubuntu 16.04), that would help a lot!

    I do have another command you can try however:

    sudo apt-get install php-curl

    I just noticed I shouldn’t have included the version number, because you may be on php7.0.
