Install pecl_http for PHP

You will probably want to ensure that curl supports https before getting underway:

curl -V

Check that the output contains https:

>: curl -V
curl 7.19.2 (i386-apple-darwin9.5.0) libcurl/7.19.2 OpenSSL/0.9.8i zlib/1.2.3
Protocols: tftp ftp telnet dict http file https ftps
Features: Largefile NTLM SSL libz

If it doesn’t:

sudo port deactivate curl
sudo port install curl +ssl

Once you have curl with https support:

sudo pecl install pecl_http

If you followed my previous howto, you’ll want to move the module to the location specified in your php.ini file:

sudo cp /opt/local/lib/php/extensions/no-debug-non-zts-20060613/ /opt/local/lib/php/extensions

Restart lighttpd and then you’ll be good to go.
