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
