multisite – WP-CLI Error Requesting CURL Extension

Instantly fell in love with WP-Cli… life at real speed, ditch the GUI.. 🙂

Each time that I run a command, it executes successfully, however I get the following error message and warning:

<br/><b style='font-size:16px; color:red;'>curl_exec function is disabled in php.ini</b> - <i style='font-size:12px; color:red;'>Social Networks AutoPoster needs the CURL PHP extension. Please enable it or contact your hosting company to enable it.</i><br/><br/>Installing Multisite Toolbar Additions (2.0.1)
