Enabling cURL in XAMPP

By default cURL is disable in XAMPP installation. If you want to enable cURL of your XAMPP environment then uncomment the following line:




in the C:\Program Files\xampp\apache\bin\php.ini file (assuming you have installed XAMPP in “C:\Program Files” folder).

If you plan to switch version of PHP in XAMPP you may made the change in following files (assuming you have installed XAMPP in “C:\Program Files” folder):

  • C:\Program Files\xampp\php\php5.ini
  • C:\Program Files\xampp\php\php.ini
  • C:\Program Files\xampp\php\php4\php.ini
  • C:\Program Files\xampp\php\php4\php4.ini

XAMPP – Sending test mails with MercuryMail

XAMPP comes with MercuryMail. To use it for sending test mails, you can do the followings:

1. Start Mercury Mail from XAMPP control panel.
2. Navigate to Mercury Mail folder in XAMPP installation (Most probably C:\Program Files\xampp\MercuryMail)
3. Double click on mercury.exe and Mercury window will be opened.
4. Go to Configuration -> Local Users
5. Add a user with password (Suppose sajjad)
6. Close this window.

That’s it.

Now you can send mail to sajjad@localhost orĀ sajjad@localhost.com (Mecury Mail should be started).

To receive mail configure outlook express with localhost as pop3 and SMTP server.

Hope these information will be helpful.
