I read something about cURL needed to be installed- Is that something like register globals and also I've run into that problem before with other software that wouldn't work unless register globals was turned on and hostmonster advised against register globals being turned on is that a requirement for CC Shopping Cart software also?

I have to say that this is what I have come up against myself and I am waiting for a reply from the server to see whether they will do this for me. If you look in the server side requirements on the cc shopping cart, you will find the cUrl listed there.I'm afraid I don't know anything about register globals to comment on that. Maybe someone else can fill in that gap for us.
Have you had any joy on this one yet?

Registered globals are something that some php scripts rely on. Due to security issues, some ISP's turn off registered globals, and that can mess up programs like the Form Builder, which require it to be turned on.
The cCURL is a library of code stuff that allows connections by different types of servers to different types of protocols. If a program needs cCURL to connect, and the server doesn't support it, then it can't work properly.
