  • enabling PHP curl_exec

    WordPress Hosting on SSD Servers
    I noticed that the PHP curl_exec() functions are disabled on my linux site.
    1. Can I enable this through cpanel?
    2. If not, can the support folks turn it on?
    3. Can anyone tell me the severity of the risks when enabling it?

    I am looking for the ability to POST data to my site without building a form in PHP. This requires curl_exec to be enabled.

    Thanks.

    No, you can not enable curl_exec() from cPanel. Please be informed that we have disabled curl_exec() function on our shared server due to security reasons and we can not enable it.

    Curl_exec() allows anyone to remotely fetch data from other remote web server and also
    download & upload files from remote servers.
