I am transferring from a server with Ubuntu on to one with CentOS and I am encountering a problem regarding cURL.
Our current site runs cURL 7.19 but Centos
yum only finds 7.15. I get an error with
CURLPROTO_HTTPS saying it's undefined as the version I have is too low.
I tried a manual install and it installed but when I tried to remove the yum-installed cURL it decided to remove any package that had dependencies on it, which is every package incuding PHP and mysql.
I found this tutorial on how to manually install 7.19 as there isn't (or I can't find) an RPM of cURL higher than 7.15.
Does anyone know how to get around this without re installing 20+ modules we use or to make the manual install the primary one?
If worst comes to worst the cURL code still works, I just have to comment out
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_PROTOCOLS, CURLPROTO_HTTPS);
I'm just not sure if that's an "ok" solution security wise, I have an SSL setup so I would hope it would be secure, but I'm not sure.
