When working with your VPS and dedicated accounts, you may try to install different programs to enhance your server to fit your needs. If you are using the default server setup, you may come across a time when you need to disable certain options. One such option is the with-curlwrappers option. You will know you need to disable this if you receive the following warning message:
PHP was compiled with --with-curlwrappers which will cause issues with HTTP authentication and GitHub. Recompile it without this flag if possible
