To enable cURL on WordPress, follow these steps:

  1. First, open your WordPress website's hosting panel or connect to your website using an FTP client like FileZilla.
  2. Locate the .htaccess file in the root directory of your WordPress installation. If you can't find it, make sure you have enabled the option to view hidden files.
  3. Download a copy of the .htaccess file to your local computer as a backup in case anything goes wrong.
  4. Edit the .htaccess file. You can use a text editor or an integrated editor within your hosting panel.
  5. Add the following line of code at the beginning of the .htaccess file:
1
php_value extension=curl.so


If your server is using PHP as a CGI, use the following line instead:

1
suPHP_ConfigPath /path/to/php.ini


Make sure to replace /path/to/php.ini with the actual path to your php.ini file.

  1. Save the changes and upload the modified .htaccess file back to your root directory.
  2. Test if cURL is enabled on your WordPress website by using a plugin or a code snippet that relies on cURL within your website. If the functionality works as expected, it means cURL is successfully enabled.


Note: Enabling cURL may require root access or permission to modify server configurations. If you are using a shared hosting environment, you may need to contact your hosting provider for assistance in enabling cURL.
