Can someone direct me on how to install cURL on a CentOS server. Preferably through WHM if it's possible to recompile PHP that way.. I am a noob in SSH and this is a production server.

I read somewhere you can do this in Easy Apache.. anyone know if this is true? – Mikey1980 Jul 16 '10 at 21:43
What is WHM? And from the sounds of your post, you don't want curl per se, but the php wrapper around curl? – Nathan Powell Jul 16 '10 at 23:16
WHM CPanel.. and yes the PHP module, hence the tags: apache php curl – Mikey1980 Jul 16 '10 at 23:24

Egads, easyapache? SSH in, switch to root and "yum install curl".
