Technology Errors

curl: option –libcurl: is unknown, curl: try curl –help for more information

I have been working on setting up some automated tasks at work that use curl to connect to FTPS on a remote server. On one of the development servers I was testing from I attempted to issue a curl command using the “–libcurl” switch which returned an error. This command was recommended by a coworker as a start to set up the automated tasks to connect to FTPS on the remote server using curl. Below I describe the error in detail, the cause of the error, and how to resolve the error.
