Updater - keep your GetSimple installation and plugins up to date
I just spent hours figuring out why this would not work on a specific host, still no damn clue why.

But CURLOPT_FILE was not being set whenin an options array.
I had to explicitly add
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FILE, fopen($destination, "w"));
( should probably be 'wb' also for binary )

It would output the file to the screen and save a 0 length file.

It has to do with the order of setting FILE. I don't know how it applies options when in an array, but apparently it can make a difference depending on config of a host and what options are defaulted internally.
it works when i move FILE to the beginning of the options array in plugins.php

PHP Code:
// no worky
$curl_options = array(
CURLOPT_URL => $url,
CURLOPT_FILE => fopen($destination"w"),

// worky
$curl_options = array(
CURLOPT_FILE => fopen($destination"w"),
CURLOPT_URL => $url,

ok figured that one out
curl_setopt_array returns false immediately if a setting fails to set, preventing any following settings to apply.
In my case, followlocation fails because of open_base_dir restrictions in php, and there is no error catch for this.
