  2. Find the code ; extension = php_curl.dll you can use search tool for more quickly find the line of code.
  3. Eliminate sign code  ; at the beginning of the line. It will be like this it extension = php_curl.dll
  4. Save changes to the file and restart your xampp Apache.
  5. The next Test was such a change if Curl is already active or not, by accessing the phpadmin you with entering localhost: https://localhost/xampp on your browser
