    I need a later version of curl than cpanel uses, one that supports greater than 2GB file transfers. Is there any harm to installing one from the source files on the curl website? Will it break PHP or anything??

    I'm at 10.6.0 R-147 with Centos 3.5. This is what I currently have installed:

    curl 7.10.6 (i386-redhat-linux-gnu) libcurl/7.10.6 OpenSSL/0.9.7a ipv6 zlib/1.1.4

    Thanks,
    John

    Go on, have a guess
    IIRC, cPanel simply uses the curl distributions that your OS vendor provides. If you want a different one you would then be breaking the support cycle that the OS vendor provides. If you're happy with that and will then manage those libraries manually from now on and will keep up to date with any bugs and security issues, then go ahead. If not, then you should leave it as it is.
