What i meant was the actual curl application is installed on the server.
Accessible from the command line at, for example, /usr/local/bin/curl
With PHP you can execute commands via the command line via system(),
exec() or via the backtick (for example $output=`/usr/local/bin/curl
You also might be able to load the extension via dl() and compile it on
your own, but i wouldn't recommend that.
First try the command line option, then ask your ISP to install then
