cURL has changed in newer versions of PHP - it no longer contains a default CA cert bundle, so SSL connections fail 100% of the time unless the user updates the CA package stored locally. - under *nix based servers this is very simple, however win32 windows doesn't work as it needs to have a specified path for the CA certs.
can we please something like the code mentioned in this post to the curl calls in filelib?
maybe checking to see if a file called "ca-certificates.crt" exists in the php dir and if SSL is being used, and adding the extra line of code,
or storing the path in somewhere like $CFG->CApath and then using it if it's set.
would be good if we could get this in 1.9stable and HEAD if possible?
