Enable curl with XAMPP on Windows XP

cURL stands for Client for URLs. It allows us to transfer files having URL syntax. It supports FTP, FTPS, HTTP, HTTPS, SCP, SFTP, TFTP, TELNET, DICT, LDAP, LDAPS and FILE.

To enable curl library with XAMPP we need to modify the php.ini files in our xampp folder.

1) Locate the following files:
C:\Program Files\xampp\apache\bin\php.ini
C:\Program Files\xampp\php\php.ini
C:\Program Files\xampp\php\php4\php.ini

2) Uncomment the following line on your php.ini file by removing the semicolon.

;extension=php_curl.dll

3) Restart your apache server.

4) Check your phpinfo if curl was properly enabled.
