APache with PHP and CURL Problem

hi, i'm having hassle setting up the CURL libs on APache and PHP.

I have APache 2.0.5 and PHP 4.3.8. I installed Apache as normal and setup PHP and have the two working fine. I have the extensions directory with the CURL Dll in my php folder.

i edited the PHP.ini file and uncommented the CURL extension and the put in the extension directory.

when i try to restart APache i get an error saying it couldn't find the DLL in the location specified. the location is correct.

anyone got any ideas?? one thought that sprang to mind. i downloaded the PHP installer and also the binary. i ran the installer and then just dropped the extension directory into the PHP directory. is this weher the problem lies?? if so how do i fix it then?

sorted it.

it was something to do with the versin of PHP i was using. i used the installer version originally.

i rmoved this version and used the binary version which unzips itself to a certain folder. i still had all the same settings in the php.ini file etc...

worked first time i tried it.

thanks for the response anyway periwinkle.

When you say that you 'put in the extension directory', did you put in the full path to the extension directory, or just a relative path?
