curl does not work on laravel with php 8

first be sure you have activated the curl-extension in your php.ini file.

After that get the cacert.pem file from curl – Extract CA Certs from Mozilla and safe it o your computer. i saved it into my php-directory. after that edit php.ini again and modify the following entry to point to the .pem.file:

; A default value for the CURLOPT_CAINFO option. This is required to be an
; absolute path.
curl.cainfo = "C:\php\php80\cacert.pem"

How to install PHP 7.3 on Windows 10

First of all download the PHP-Version you want to install. In my case it will be the PHP 7.3 x64 Thread Save versio. This is the link to the download section on In my case i downloaded the ZIP-file of VC15 x64 Thread Safe (2020-Oct-27 16:52:12). Unzip the ZIP archive to a new folde which will be your php installation folder. So choose wisely ๐Ÿ™‚ I used c:\php\php73 for that. After you have unzipped the PHP-Archive you need to locate the file php.ini-development and rename it to php.ini.

Open the php.ini file in any texteditor and change the extension_dir settings to the choosen directory, followed by an /ext. In my case its c:\php\php73\ext. Or you can set it like below:

; On windows:
extension_dir = "ext"

After that you need to add your path to the php-directory (in my case: C:\php\php73) to the Windows PATH variable. Search for “PATH” in the Windows Search-Bar to edit the environment variables.

Edit Environment Variables

Search in the system variable for the Path entry and edit this to add your PHP-path

After you have added your line click ok on all Windows to save your settings

To verify everything worked correctly open your command shell by typing cmd into the windows search bar

and type php -v in your command shell. You shall get the version information of your php installation. And now everything is done.

The same procedure is for every other php version like 7.x or 7.4. To install php in different directories (in my case C:\php\phpVERSION) gives you the chance to use different php version on Command Line Interface by setting the direct pth to the executable CLI.

I work hard on RolandRadio

Because of the Corona pandemic I finally have time to take care of my little RolandRadio and since the beginning of March the project is making great progress. New servers, new homepage and the complete development from one source. If I used to use WordPress I now use Laravel and the possibility to implement new functions by myself. And I learn programming on the side.

Mr. Beam II arrived

Yes! After a very very long time (November 2016) yesterday my Mr Beam II laser cutter arrived. I pledged this thing on Kickstarter. ย But: I have no time to unpack this thing. Damn.

First thing I will cut: my name. Second: Amstrad CPC 464 keyboard case ๐Ÿ˜€

Everything “new” again

I wanted to start today with my small Arduino project but realized, that i only can activate my computer’s operating system while being connected to my company’s active directory and domain. Damn Windows 10 Enterprise ๐Ÿ™‚ So i just started over again installing Windows 10 Pro. And I also set up my Arduino IDE. At the beginning I had some troubles connecting the NodeMCU board as i didn’t knew, that there must be separate board-settings loaded to the Arduino IDE. But the internet helped my very well with this blogpost. And I installed the settings and also already tested them with my board. works very well.

Just a new Blog from Kangaroo MusiQue

Iโ€™ve had a blog years ago and blogged all day long, started very early and stopped in 2015, deleted all stuff and that was it. Now, a few years later i thought about blogging again, Mainly to divide my private blog from my artistic work i do as Kangaroo MusiQue. So thatโ€™s the main reason why i start blogging again. The other reason is: there are people who are interested in the music i do. And for those and for my own pleasure i want to start to archive those nice little bleeps and blops i am doing on the Amstrad CPC, the funny stuff i do with my Apple MacBook and all the other things around me. So maybe it is getting boring, but i hope it will not. We will see and so this is my first blog entry right after Revision 2018. I will blog mainly in English, also i know my English is not as good as i could be. But that will be improved by time writing English i think. We will also see if this happens. So: welcome to my new blog. If you like to follow use the RSS-feeds or the notification list.
