Follow-up from my post yesterday (Enabling cURL with PHP)

The problem is that PHP isn't able to load php_curl.dll. I've tried several steps including uncommenting extension=php_curl.dll, making sure the dependencies libeay32.dll and ssleay32.dll eixst in the path, re-downloading php_curl.dll, replacing the old one, and lastly copying the file into my System32 folder.

I'm using Apache 2.2 and PHP 5.4.14. I installed both using their individual packages; I'm not using XAMP or WAMP. I'm using Windows 7 64-bit.

Any help at all would be appreciated.



libeay32.dll and ssleay32.dll have to be path-accessible for php_curl.dll loading to succeed.

But copying them into Apache's ServerRoot, Apache's bin, Window's System32, or even worse into the Windows main directory is a bad hack and may not even work with newer PHP versions.

The right way to do it is to add the PHP path to the Windows Path variable.

  1. In Control Panel -> System click on Advanced System Settings or press WIN+R and type SystemPropertiesAdvanced
  2. Click the button Environment Variables.
  3. Under System Variables you will find the Path variable. Edit it and prepend C:PHP; to it - or whatever the path to your PHP folder is.
    (Hint: If your PHP folder contains spaces like C:Program FilesPHP you may need to use the short filename form here, i.e. C:Progra~1PHP.)
  4. Then fully stop Apache and start it again (a simple restart might not be enough).

Update 2017-05:
I changed the instructions above to prepend the Path variable with the PHP path instead of appending to it. This makes sure that the DLLs in the PHP path are used and not any other (outdated) versions in other paths of the system.

Update 2018-04:
If you have already chosen the wrong way and copied any of the PHP DLLs to Apache or Windows paths, then I strongly recommend that you remove them again! If you don't, you might get into trouble when you later try to update PHP. If a new PHP version brings new versions of these DLLs, but your old DLLs still linger around in system or webserver paths, these old DLLs might be found first. This will most certainly prevent the PHP interpreter from starting. Such errors can be very hard to understand and resolve. So better clean up now and remove any of the mentioned DLLs from Windows and Apache paths, if you copied them there.
(Thanks to @EdmundTam and @WasimA. for pointing out this problem in the comments!)

Update 2019-10:
Tip: To find all copies of these DLLs and check whether you might have placed them in the wrong folders, you can use the following commands in a Windows Command Prompt window:

dir c:libeay32.dll /s
dir c:ssleay32.dll /s

Be warned that these commands may take some time to complete as they search through the entire directory structure of your system drive C:.

Update 2020-08:
If your PHP folder contains spaces (i.e. C:Program FilesPHP) you may need to use the short filename form in the Path variable at step 3 (i.e. C:Progra~1PHP). Thanks to @onee for this tip!

The ..._oci.dll is part of the Oracle C Interface. Unless you need to use Oracle, I suggest you go to the relevant line inside the php.ini file and uncomment the loading of this extension. However, if you need to use this extension, you’ll need to install the free Oracle Client libraries and add them to the path.

Oracle has a page where you can download the libraries needed for your setup work as expected and you can see here: Oracle Instant Client Downloads

Note: After you choose your operational system (Windows as in your answer) in download section you will see the installation guide in foot notes of the next page. For others OSs this process will work the same way.

cURL is not able to verify the authenticity of the certificate being used, because the certificate for the signing authority cannot be found in the local database.

This might be symptomatic of a self signed certificate being used.

What you should do is add the certificate for the signing authority to /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt.

What you can do is use curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, false);, which will disable the check that is failing.

You really should use the first option.

you should check examples from here

Bellow is the code for you case,

$url = "";     
$data = "POST_RESULTS=true&RUN_ID=".$testrun_id."&CHECK_NAME=SampleAutomatedPlan";
$ch = curl_init();
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $url);

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYHOST, false);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, false);  
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $data); 

// $output contains the output string
$output = curl_exec($ch);

// close curl resource to free up system resources

I solved this problem using the 1.1.9 version of mongodb driver for php 5. First uninstall the current version of mongodb and then install the 1.1.9 version:

sudo pecl uninstall mongodb
sudo pecl install mongodb-1.1.9
composer update
