1.7.3 Install issure on Ubuntu server cURL Not showing as installed

Im having issues getting pssed the Pre req screen on 1.7.3, (im trying to upgrade from 1.6.3)

i cannot get cURL to be seen by 1.7.3, I have installed it using a sudo apt-get install cURL however Im not sure if im missing an additional step?

Any tips or advise?

TLDR : cURL has a cross on pre req screen, Installed cURL, still a cross

You need to install the php5-curl package then restart Apache

Had the same problem and installing php5-curl resolved it for me.
