I've been trying to make Apache 2.2 + MySQL + PHP 5.3.5 + cURL on my Windows Vista SP2 (Service Pack 2) during the last 2 days. Just headaches and full of frustration. I've uninstalled everything and found this little diamond called XAMPP.
SO SIMPLE, SO EASY, SO QUICK!!!
This is just fantastic. I was able to make everything work within less than 15 minutes and enable cURL just by uncommenting ";" before extension=php_curl.dll.
Just wanted to subscribe to the forum (in case I need help in the future) and say a big thank you and encourage you guys.
