cURL is 5 years old, has security issues and has bugs


#1

Hello,

Is it possible to upgrade cURL, the latest installed version on cloudways servers is more then 5 years old. The installed version on the servers is 7.38.0 (Sep 10 2014).

The current stable version is 7.66.0, the latest relases can be fount at https://curl.haxx.se/docs/releases.html

How to upgrade this, since the guys on support/live chat can’t do anything about this?

I had a similar issue in the past, where I needed an update for security reasons in a library. Customer support asked me to pay. I hope this will change in the future. Until then, you can always update it yourself without sudo. For example here https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/312556/install-curl-without-being-root
