Installing Moodle - failed to load cURL php extension

I know that there are lot of questions regarding this issue, but believe me , I've tried a bunch of solutions offered, but none of them worked for me.

Here is the list of software I've used (this is what I've been asked to use)

  1. httpd-2.2.31-win32
  2. php 5.4.45-Win32-VC9-x86 thread safe
  3. mysql
  4. moodle 2.8.10

After first introduction steps into moodle installation , where everything passed smoothly,I’ve encountered the problem shown on the capture. enter image description here

List of things I've tried : - I’ve checked if php_curl.dll exist in ext file , it does.

  • I’ve checked if line ;extension=php_curl.dll is uncommented , it was.

  • Then I’ve took icudt49.dll, icuin49.dll and icuuc49.dll files and paste them inside Apache bin directory, restart apache and still nothing.

  • I read many posts, most mention copying 3 files into C:\Windows\system32 or C:\Windows\SysWOW64 folder

      - php_curl.dll
      - libeay32.dll
      - ssleay32.dll , again nothing.
  • Then found fixed curl extensions , tried with that , again nothing.
  • Tried everything found here How to enable curl in Wamp server.

Is there anyone who can help ? Thank You.

I had the same problem but used wampserver, In order to solve it

Go to [www.anindya.com] download php_curl-5.4.3-VC9-x64.zip under "Fixed curl extensions:" and replace the php_curl.dll in ext folder(C:\wamp\bin\php\php5.4.3\ext) . This worked for me.
