Cannot register on my forums

Hi, I setup my vanilla forums ver 2.3 and for some reason I am unable to register. It gives me an error saying "something has gone wrong. We've run into a problem and are unable to handle the request". I've made sure my captcha key is working, I've also made sure that my mail is able to be sent through the forums. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks for that point in the right direction!

    I got this error " Fatal Error in Garden\Http\HttpRequest.createCurl(); "

    Followed by " Call to undefined function Garden\Http\curl_init() The error occurred on or near: /var/www/html/forums/vendor/vanilla/garden-http/src/HttpRequest.php " then it shows the line that has the error in the file which is line 125 " $ch = curl_init(); "

    I am running vanilla 2.3

    could be bad karma because of the gun or ...

    make sure curl is installed in your php.

    see for creating phpinfo to verify.

    I would give you instructions but don't know your web server, os, or php version.

    Pragmatism is all I have to offer. Avoiding the sidelines and providing centerline pro-tips.

    Shortly after posting that error code I delved into the curl error a bit more and found out that i did need curl. I sorted the problem out by installing curl. I'm using ubuntu 16.04 with a lamp stack so it was fairly easy. Thank you so much for your speedy response, I am new to vanilla so I am super glad that there's a helpful community! Once again thank you so much for your help @River @whu606
