Can't install any extensions


Hi guys,

My system environment is
PHP 4.3.8
Web server Apache/2.0.52 (Win32) mod_ssl/2.0.52 OpenSSL/0.9.7e

I was trying to enable curl extension by uncomment php_curl.dll in php.ini. But right after I uncommented php_curl.dll, I couldn’t load any PHP pages. It looked it is loading from the status bar. But eventually I got nothing loaded.

I also happened to find out that this happens when I uncomment any extension (dlls).

There was another person who had the same issue.

But in the reply, it says this problem does not imply a bug in PHP itself.

Has anyone here confronted this before? This is driving me crazy. Please help!


So if you comment it back out does php start working again?


I’m thinking you’re missing the curl DLL, and by uncommenting the line in php.ini, you’re telling the engine to go look for it. But it can’t find it, and (in CLI) throws an error. I’m unfamiliar with PHP’s webservice behaviour in case of a missing DLL though.
