Some software and plugins out there require support of cURL and some website hosting service providers disable support for cURL for “security purposes”. So here is a quick way to check if your server supports cURL before you shell out a nice chunk of cash on that new plugin or software.

Create a PHP page with the following code in it:


function _iscurlsupported() {
if  (in_array  (‘curl’, get_loaded_extensions())) {
return true;
return false;

if (_iscurlsupported()) echo “cURL is supported”; else echo “cURL is NOT supported”;


Save and upload the page to your server and then open it up in a browser. The answer lies within.

Ok, later.
