Problems enabling SSL

Postby Jubic » 05. September 2011 07:36

A PHP Error was encountered

Severity: Warning

Message: fsockopen() [function.fsockopen]: unable to connect to ssl://smtp.googlemail.com:465 (Unable to find the socket transport "ssl" - did you forget to enable it when you configured PHP?)

Filename: libraries/Email.php

Line Number: 1673


Ever since I updated xampp to 1.7.4, this problem has been bugging me to the core. I'm using CodeIgniter. I've tried following http://www.leoganda.net/how-to-enable-x ... transport/, but to no avail. Anyone has any solution?

Two questions -

First - what XAMPP version was this code working on before?

Second - what Windows version, and did you upgrade/move onto Windows 7 or Vista?


Good Luck

OK -

We can dismiss one possible issue - probably not a Socket method problem in Windows.
Although it 'could' be related to a Windows Service Pack - Did you recently install Win 7 SP1??:

I'm probably not as expert with PHP as some others at this level of socket debugging, but I would look in these PHP threads:

http://php.net/manual/en/function.fsockopen.php

https://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=51079

You could -install separately 1.7.3 on the machine and if it goes back to 'works', then you are down to a PHP issue, else likely OS related.

Good Luck

Thanks man, it's really SP1's issue. Uninstalled it, and it worked like a charm. No wonder my school's helpdesk recommend us to uninstall it too
