i am trying to use curl and

curl -H "Content-Type: application/json" -X POST -d '{"items":[{"name":"first order","id":42}]}' http://localhost:8080/create-order

responds with

curl: /home/sara/LD_LIBRARY/libcurl.so.4: version `CURL_OPENSSL_4' not found (required by curl)

followed the solution given (here)[curl is not working on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS but no luck


Run this command : locate libcurl.so.4 Result will be :

  1. /YOUR_PATH/libcurl.so.4 (generally the path is "/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libcurl.so.4")
  2. /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libcurl.so.4.5.0

Remove the file which is causing the error using sudo rm /YOUR_PATH/libcurl.so.4 command.

Recreate softlink by using following command : sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libcurl.so.4.5.0 /YOUR_PATH/libcurl.so.4
