Install CURL & fix Backup problem with cPanel/WHM


I have a dedicated server in the UK and am trying to install CURL via WHM for WHMCS. I have ran into a few problems. Normally it would be a simple process of installing via easyapache but this returned the following error:

I am running cpanel/whm 11 on linux fedora core 6 dedicated server, for this project I need someone who is capable of installing CURL - without affecting the rest of the system.

I also have a simpler request on top of this, cPanel has a backup feature which allows admin to restore 'cpmove' files for individual accounts, I recently tried this by asking the user in question to upload the file,then via SSH, I moved it to the roots /home folder and attempted to restore, however it did not work and I received an error stating that it failed due to the username being taken. I would like to have this looked into.

I can provide full root access to the server via SSH, access to WHM and will try and provide anything else if needed.
