I'm trying to install the Amazon Web Services PHP SDK on my Ubuntu LAMP server. Whenever I run the compatibly check everything but cURL comes back okay. The issue I'm having is that it's reporting I don't have cURL with SSL. I uninstalled curl then installed curl-ssl with no avail.

Maybe you forgot some packages to install libcurl4-openssl-dev?

sudo apt-get remove --purge php5-curl && \
sudo apt-get install libcurl4-openssl-dev curl-ssl php5-curl

Then restart server:

sudo apachectl -k restart

This question should be on maybe
