When I go to my xampp\apache directory and run makecert, it fails with the following error:
"Unable to load config info from ./bin/openssl.cnf"
This strikes me as completely reasonable, because there is no such file in the local bin directory.
My XAMPP phpinfo() page says this, under "Apache Environment":
So it's also completely understandable why it would look for the file there.
Searching my computer for the file indicates I have no file of that name anywhere on it, so it does not seem to be a configuration issue - XAMPP well and truly did not come with one, despite being configured to use it. Unfortunately, I can't seem to be able to Google up any replacements available for download, and the only example cnfs I can find from others are so clearly specific to their machines that I don't know where to begin making my own from scratch.
Does anyone have any suggestions on the best way I can fix this issue?
