After upgrading to Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, I encountered this issue with
“PHP CONFIGURATION ERROR”.
Here it is a really quick fix.
I started using
arc (also know as Arcanist, a Phabricator tool for CVS workflow) with Ubuntu 17.10 on a Dell XPS 13.
A week ago, I upgraded my system to the shiny Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.
It went all fine, except for
arc that started throwing this error when executed:
$ arc PHP CONFIGURATION ERRORS You need to install the cURL PHP extension, with 'apt-get install php-curl'.
The strange thing is that the recommended fix was not working at all.
I didn’t investigate (I wanted to come back operative as fast as possible), but I highly suspect that it was probably related to the new PHP version.
However, to fix the error I just reinstalled php-cli with:
sudo apt install php-cli
If this does not work, try also:
sudo apt install php7.2 php7.2-common php7.2-cli
