I've installed xampp on a bare debian system (cli only, to minimize overhead). I am planning to use it for a web application. However, that application needs cURL 7.24 or higher, and xampp only comes with 7.21.
I've been messing around with it for the last 5-6 hours, but without much succes. I can't find anything specific for cURL and xampp. However, I found out that you can recompile php for xampp, and I figured that I could change the sources of cURL included in the xampp developer package, with the latest files.
Since the tutorial (http://stackoverflow.com/questions/8740817/upgrading-php-in-xampp-for-linux) spoke of getting the latest php version, I decided to do that too, so I could follow it exactly.
However, I keep running into different errors, with missing dependencies/libraries/sources for all the default extensions that xampp uses.
Now when typing this, I figured I should have tried it with the default php sources, as I guess they are included in the developer package? (I really don't know lol, the 'new' php folder seems to contain quite a bit more than the xampp dev folder)
I also tried downloading the compiled curl file from the debian repo's, and just change it in the xampp folder, but that didn't help. Changing the curl-config file to say 'version 7.26' instead of '7.21' didn't work either.
Any help, as I am way in over my head!
