Or , how I’ve spent the better part of the last several days, because I get obsessed with some computer that won’t obey me. Why can’t I simply treat it like my wife or my dog or my kids, and just let it dominate me? I suppose it’s a disorder of some kind. But if I medicated it, I’d never get anything done.

Helpful Links (great guys)

Cheap Work Around



(Why do it the easy way when you can spend 20 hours and not get sneered at by random guys on the internet? )

Php Code (some of it):


public static function curlPost($url , $header , $jsondata )
        $json_string = json_encode($jsondata, JSON_PRETTY_PRINT);
        print ($json_string);
        fwrite(STDOUT, $json_string . "\n");
        $curl = curl_init();
        $myArray = _web::curl_options_array($url , "POST" , $header , null);
        curl_setopt_array($curl,  $myArray );
        curl_setopt($curl , CURLOPT_STDERR, fopen('/curl.txt', 'w+'));
        curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $jsondata);
        $response = curl_exec($curl);
        $err     = curl_errno( $curl );
        $errmsg  = curl_error( $curl );
        fwrite(STDOUT, $err . " " . $errmsg . "\n");
        $outheader  = curl_getinfo( $curl );
        fwrite(STDOUT, $outheader . "\n");
        return $response;
    public static function curl_options_array($url , $method = null , $header = null , $json = null)
        if ( is_null ($method )) $method = "GET";
    //    CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER => false,

        $retArray =  array(
        CURLOPT_URL => $url,
        CURLOPT_MAXREDIRS => 10,
        CURLOPT_TIMEOUT => 0,
        CURLOPT_VERBOSE => true ,
        CURLOPT_ENCODING => "" ,                  // handle all encodings
        CURLOPT_CONNECTTIMEOUT => 120 ,           // timeout on connect
        CURLOPT_TIMEOUT => 120 ,                  // timeout on response
        CURLOPT_CUSTOMREQUEST => $method

        if (  !empty($header)  ) $retArray[] = array(CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER => $header); // append the header
        if (  !empty($json) & $method == "POST" )   $retArray[] = array(CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS => $json); // append the data

        return $retArray;

With the php.ini fragment below, this produces an error code 77 error setting certificate verify locations:  CAfile: C:\Program Files\PHP\v8.0.3\extras\ssl\cacert.perm CApath: none  

And I've been trying various settings, even trying to integrate with Windows as below, so the current ini file doesn't reflect all the permutations it's gone through.

curl.cainfo = C:\Program Files\PHP\v8.0.3\extras\ssl\cacert.perm
openssl.cafile= C:\Program Files\PHP\v8.0.3\extras\ssl\cacert.perm
openssl.capath= C:\Users\tharvey2.UTK\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\SystemCertificates\My\Certificates

Web Project

One thing I also tried was creating a Devsense/php web project , used IIS Express, and clicked the Enable SSL checkbox, with similar results: 60 SSL certificate problem: unable to get local issuer certificate


curl.cainfo =”C:\Program Files (x86)\PHP\v8.0\extras\ssl\cacert.pem”
