Ok, to start, this is what I have in my readme file in regards to what I have...
+ Apache 2.2.21
+ MySQL 5.5.16 (Community Server)
+ PHP 5.3.8 (VC9 X86 32bit thread safe) + PEAR
+ XAMPP Control Panel Version 2.5 from www.nat32.com
+ (BETA) XAMPP Control Panel Version 3.0.2 by Steffen Strueber (not in the USB & lite version)
+ XAMPP Security
+ OpenSSL 1.0.0e
+ phpMyAdmin 3.4.5
+ ADOdb 5.14
+ Mercury Mail Transport System v4.62 (not in the USB & lite version)
+ FileZilla FTP Server 0.9.39 (not in the USB & lite version)
+ Webalizer 2.23-04 (not in the USB & lite version)
+ Perl 5.10.1 (not in the USB & lite version)
+ Mod_perl 2.0.4 (not in the USB & lite version)
+ Tomcat 7.0.21 (not in the USB & lite version)
I'm running on Windows Vista 32 bit. I currently only have Apache running as a service.
Here's, the deal. I began about a week ago trying to start a home web server to host a modified zazzle (zazzle.com) storebuilder page as the webhost i was using before didn't support curl, and curl is required for zazzle storebuilder grids. I started with just using apache 2.2 and php 5, and couldn't get php running for the life of me. I finally wound up switching over to XAMPP and it works fine now. HOWEVER, curl still isn't functioning.
I started from a fresh install, and removed the ; from the curl extenstions line. That didn't work. I wound up going through about 10-15 different tutorials, none of which worked, before I started back on a fresh install, and removed the semicolon again. PHP is working, and I can verify that with my phpinfo test page. Unfortunately I still have yet to see any section on phpinfo in regards to curl, and my test page for the storebuilder grids also don't work.
I've been eyeing code for two days straight now, will someone please tell me what I am missing? None of the online tutorials I have found work, so I'm assuming they are outdated?
