Support » Fixing WordPress » php_curl.dll – Access Denied

  • Hi all,

    I’m getting this error:
    PHP Warning: Unknown(): Unable to load dynamic library 'C:\php\extensions\php_curl.dll' - Access is denied. in Unknown on line 0

    … and I’ve no idea why.

    Helpful PHP diagnosis, as ever.

    It’s rendering the entire WP-admin unusable, as it seems to be affecting all stylesheets and JS includes.

    The error also shows on the blog itself – right at the bottom.

    Is this purely server side? Seemed to coincide with a failed update to WP-Cumulus – though I’ve removed all files, and this still exists.

    Shedding any light on the situation gratefully received.

    I’ve asked my host, but they’re pretty useless on the whole. Need to move out…

  • Hi ghostboy,

    I take it this is running on a server with IIS? Were you installing curl or is this something your provider was doing? Are you able to change permissions on files such as libeay32.dll and ssleay32.dll?

    Hoping to get some more answers to help narrow down what the problem is…
