Thought this would be a simple process, but I guess not. I need the latest version of CURL (7.23 or newer) on CentOS 6.3.

If I do this:

sudo yum upgrade curl

It just tells me there is nothing to do (everything is up to date).

So I followed some other ServerFault posts, and tried this:

sudo rpm -i http://mirror.city-fan.org/ftp/contrib/sysutils/Mirroring/libcurl-7.29.0-2.0.cf.rhel6.x86_64.rpm

But that tells me:

warning: /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.4L8Nyj: Header V3 DSA/SHA1 Signature, key ID b56a8bac: NOKEY error: Failed dependencies: c-ares(x86-64) >= 1.9.1 is needed by libcurl-7.29.0-2.0.cf.rhel6.x86_64 libssh2(x86-64) >= 1.4.3 is needed by libcurl-7.29.0-2.0.cf.rhel6.x86_64

So what do I actually have to do to get this upgraded?

The package you want to install need dependencies which aren't in standart repositories. Use "city-fan.org" repo for these dependencies: http://www.city-fan.org/ftp/contrib/yum-repo/ And install it with yum command.

It should be something like this:

rpm -Uvh http://www.city-fan.org/ftp/contrib/yum-repo/city-fan.org-release-1-12.rhel6.noarch.rpm
yum install libcurl

Try executing these commands:

rpm -Uvh http://www.city-fan.org/ftp/contrib/yum-repo/city-fan.org-release-1-12.rhel6.noarch.rpm
yum install libcurl

And restart your Apache afterwards.

service httpd restart

Run phpinfo() and it will show new curl version.
