i already installed cURL with: yum install curl

I restarted the httpd service but cURL is still not loaded. What else needs to be done?

Do you mean as a PHP module? I believe it's php5-curl, but just try searching yum.

The package 'curl' is just the command-line curl client.

yum info php5-curl returns nothing =( -- same for php-curl or php4-curl – andufo Jul 6 '10 at 22:54
wait... yum install php-curl did work, but it didnt get automatically configured in the php.ini config file. i'll get on that now ;) thanks – andufo Jul 6 '10 at 22:59
It might go into /etc/php.d/curl.ini, RPMs usually do. – JamesHannah Jul 7 '10 at 11:58
