If you are running on Windows with a Wampserver or alike preconfigured PHP, if you did everything that was advised (path is correct, dlls are in the System32 or the Wow64 folder, php_curl extension uncommented in the php.ini, rebooted your machine and restarted your services), and you still receive messages saying that curl is not installed :
- maybe you are running a command line script (and not a curl instruction within a web application). If yes, remember that there are 2 distinct php.ini configuration files : one for the php-cli commands (run php at command line) and one for the php instructions (run from a page in your www folder).
Wampserver's menuitem "php.ini" only opens the webserver's php.ini, not the php-cli one.
So it will be great to check your php-cli's php.ini configuration file ! (you'll find it in the php.exe's installation folder)
You need to uncomment the extension php_curl in this php.ini file for the command lines to work with curl.
Also uncomment the php_openssl extention by the way (often used with curl).
I hope this fixed issue will help someone else :)
