I tried upating to curl 7.51.0 but when I run curl --version I still see the old version 7.35.0.

curl: /usr/local/lib/libcurl.so.4: no version information available (required by curl)
curl 7.35.0 (x86_64-pc-linux-gnu) libcurl/7.51.0 OpenSSL/1.0.1f zlib/1.2.8 librtmp/2.3
Protocols: dict file ftp ftps gopher http https imap imaps ldap ldaps pop3 pop3s rtmp rtsp smb smbs smtp smtps telnet tftp 
Features: IPv6 Largefile NTLM NTLM_WB SSL libz TLS-SRP

Running which curl shows /usr/bin/curl but the script seems to install 7.51.0 in /usr/local/bin/curl. To specify /usr/bin/curl as the path it's installed to change the ./configure to ./configure --prefix=/usr

@derylspielman is right.

./configure --prefix=/usr should be used in order to replace the default curl binay located in /usr/bin/curl, tested on Ubuntu 14.04 with curl 7.52.1

Where do I run this and how.?
I have a bitnami Magento stack on AWS and don't know how to do this.
Obviously I can upload to my site, but where do I put it and how do I run it?
Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS - trusty - PHP 5.4.32 - curl 7.27

Just for the people with the same issue: ./configure didn't add SSL support to curl. To do that, I first had to install libssl-dev and then ./configure automatically detect SSL without passing --with-sshl option.

Download curl with wget is like downloading Firefox/Chrome with an Internet Explorer! :D Thx by the way.

Thank you.
(I have confirmed that the script works perfectly in the Ubuntu 12.04 distribution.)
Due to the this OCSP bug : https://www.cybersecurity-help.cz/vdb/SB2017022201?affChecked=1
I recommend use the latest version of curl-7.59.0

Thanks!
Few notes for the script which helped me:

  1. Check the latest version of curl here: http://curl.haxx.se/download/ and change the script accordingly (i.e every 7.50.2 to 7.60.0)
  2. Change ./configure to ./configure --prefix=/usr
  • Use curl --version to verify it got updated

EDITED: Great... Not working. Curl is giving no response.
Also PHP info is showing another version of curl: cURL Information | 7.47.0
I did sudo service apache2 restart

Thank you, it works. I have updated to latest (7.63.0 on 2019-01-09) because I had some problems with Curl 7.49 and Guzzle.

Steps for Ubuntu 16.04

touch update_curl.sh
chmod u+wx update_curl.sh
nano update_curl.sh


#! /usr/bin/env bash
sudo apt-get build-dep curl
mkdir ~/curl
cd ~/curl
wget http://curl.haxx.se/download/curl-7.63.0.tar.bz2
tar -xvjf curl-7.63.0.tar.bz2
cd curl-7.63.0
./configure --prefix=/usr
make
sudo make install
sudo ldconfig


./update_curl.sh
