PHP cURL: extension enabled but it does not work

After a fresh installation of my PC (I upgraded to Windows 10), I could no longer use the PHP cURL extension...

Very strange because the cURL extension was well enabled inside my php.ini file


Here is a small piece of PHP code to test if cURL is available and running

	if (in_array('curl', get_loaded_extensions()))
		echo "cURL is installed on this server.\n";
		echo "cURL is not installed on this server.\n";
	if (function_exists('curl_init'))
		echo "Function curl_init is available.\n";
		echo "Function curl_init is NOT available.\n";

After some research, I have found the root cause... It is simply that we need to add the PHP install directory (exemple c:\php) into the Windows PATH.
Otherwise, cURL dependencies, namely libeay32.dll, ssleay32.dll and libssh2.dll were not found and cURL will not start.



PHP (Hypertext Preprocessor) is a widely-used open source general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited for web development and can be embedded into HTML I have been writer for twenty five years.  I sold many books on my writing and gained awards for some of them. I work as a professional thesis writer in many essay writing companies. Thesis writing service really helped in developing new thoughts and new ideas in writing.
