Oh. Then we can't know how it was made. You have to contact the persons
responsible for that "phpdev package" and ask them about the libcurl status.

Then, if it turns out it doesn't use a libcurl DLL, we can't easily replace
it. In that case, you'd need a new version of php_curl.dll that is built with
a libcurl that supports https://.

You can verify if this is the case: when you installed the php_curl.dll in
the Apache/php/extensions/ directory, did you install any other DLL that
looks like it could be the libcurl DLL? If you didn't, you can assume that
php_curl.dll is PHP+curl in a single DLL and then you need to get another
version of that with https:// support included. You'd need to contact the
people from where you got that DLL from in the first place.

libcurl.dll has all the features you want, the question is if the PHP dll
uses the libcurl dll.

You can always use the 'curl.exe' command line tool from PHP as you would
have used any other command line tool from within PHP (don't ask me to tell
you how, since I'm not fluent in PHP). I'd suggest you take any such
questions to the curl-and-php mailing list if you need help with such.

That's an attitude I like!
