Since the grand server 1 crash of dooooom, the curl-php module seems entirely non-functional. This is critical for several aspects of WordPress installations and I imagine many other things as well. Please could this be fixed, if you find the time.
I hadn't realised that it was delibreately omitted; thanks for the info. The reason I'd like it is for the OpenID support and Blogger import in Wordpress.
Yes, they are extensions to WP. Thanks for your informative responses - I guess I'll just have to wait then.
Not to nag or anything, but having looked around a bit, only php needs to be recompiled with --with-curl=/usr --with-curlwrappers. Or alternatively, an RPM package for CentOS (server 1's OS) is available fairly easily, but I don't think it would work well or at all with a built-from-source PHP (probably built from source for speed or something). I know it's not really a top priority but it'd be nice if I could get some 'official' response on if and when (roughly0 this might happen so I can look into alternative solutions or maybe another host.
Yes I will add it as you requested (I don't really like to add it though). It will just take some time.
