Some background info:
We do payment processing via Paypal/Verising.
To do such payment processing with them our PHP program needs to establish
a http connection with them which is apparently done by calling some cURL related functions such as curl_initi();
What is cURL module of PHP?
How do I add it to our PHP installation?
FYI, i checked the php.ini of our PHP and it id not even mentioned there!

I just happen to be reading up on cURL also, but for Authorize.net. Here's the link:
Seems pretty straight forward.

Did you install cURL on your server?
How difficult was it?
Did you have to compile PHP after?

I'm running WAMP on my testing server and it's enabled by default. Not sure what version of PHP your running, but I believe all you have to do it is uncomment it in your php.ini file. But I noticed that you said you could not find it in your php.ini. Maybe another quick look and you might find extension=php_curl.dll under your extensions and uncomment it.
Check out this link: http://curl.haxx.se/libcurl/php/install.html#windows

Thanks for the info.
But we are running a Linux server.
And I find no mention of "curl" in php.ini of it at all.
So where you able to finish the programming via curl easily/quickly
to call the payment processor to process the payment?
