The PHP install that I am working with is one that I used downloaded binaries rather than me compiling the source code myself. However, I was under the impression that I will need to compile the source code in order to get ssl to work. Even though that page says that Win32 users need to do some additional things to get the OpenSSL functions to work, it did not say that they don't have to compile the code. First it said that compiling the code '--with-openssl[=DIR]' was necessary, then it had a note for Win32 users. As opposed to having 2 different sections, one for Linux and one for Win 32. Anyway I already have the required files in my PATH. Is there anyone here that has used OpenSSL on Win 32 with PHP, who would know whether or not I need to recompile the code? In the mean time, I would like to try compiling it with that option (if that is possible) to see if I can get it working, but I don't know how to compile it with that (or any) extension.
