Support » Plugin: BackWPup - WordPress Backup Plugin » Can't start backup job due to SSL error

  • Resolved Spirit92

    Hey there,

    I am using:

    WordPress 3.8
    BackWPup 3.1.1
    PHP-Version 5.3.26
    MySQL-Version 5.1.36
    cURL-Version 7.21.0
    cURL-SSL-Version OpenSSL/1.0.1e

    on a site working with SSL. When starting a job in the plugin Backwpup the error “SSL certificate problem, verify that the CA cert is OK. Details: error:14090086:SSL routines:SSL3_GET_SERVER_CERTIFICATE:certificate verify failed” occurs.

    So nothing will be backuped. Since I use the plugin on all my other sites just working fine I would really want to continue using it. Who may help? Thanks in advance.

    Same Problem here. I fear this have something to do with the old PHP Version. But i cant update easily, because my vServer uses Ubuntu 10.04, where the latest supported version is PHP 5.3.2. I cat upgrade to 12.04, because there is no Ubuntu 12.04 available for my vServer.

    Any solution or a hack?

    Same problem here. Was just fine on BackWPup 3.0.13. Updated to 3.1.1 and suddenly we get this error:

    `The HTTP response test get an error “SSL certificate problem, verify that the CA cert is OK. Details: error:14090086:SSL routines:SSL3_GET_SERVER_CERTIFICATE:certificate verify failed”‘

    Daniel, any ideas?

    I will update the cacert.pem with the next bugix release. Also i have tweaked the SSL for dropbox a bit.

    Same problem here. I use Better WP Security with <Enforce Login SSL|Enforce Admin> SSL = on.
    When I run manually the job (Jobs > Run now) I get the following warning/error:

    The HTTP response test get an error “SSL certificate problem, verify that the CA cert is OK. Details: error:14090086:SSL routines:SSL3_GET_SERVER_CERTIFICATE:certificate verify failed””

    Hello,

    you can try add_filter( 'https_local_ssl_verify', '__return_false' ); in you functions.php

    if i add this, i get a white empty page 🙁

    Hi Daniel,

    I have added the filter you’ve specified in my current theme functions.php file but no help so far.

    What I’ve done: I’ve tried to set up my Dropbox account in “To: Dropbox” tab by pressing (Reauthenticate – full Dropbox) and I’ve got this message:

    Dropbox API: (35) Unsupported SSL protocol version

    Did I missed something?

    Hello that above isen’t for Dropbox. For dropbox i have added some thinks in the next bugfix release that will hopfuly fix your problem to.
    You can test the release by gettig it from here: https://github.com/inpsyde/backwpup

    After i add it to ../wp-content/plugins/backwpup/backwpup.php, directly after the initial comments, it works.

    If i add it to functions.php, i get a blank white page. I hope i could help others to solve this problem.

    We won’t include this as an option as it is a settings-related edge case and not an error in our code. Wrap the above filter in a custom mini-plugin and you’ll probably be ok.

    Writing a custom mini plugin isn’t that hard. You could start like this:

    <?php
    /**
     * Plugin Name: Your mini plugin.
     * Description: Does things.
     * Author: You
     * Version: 0.0.1
     */
    if ( ! defined( 'ABSPATH' ) )
     exit;
    
    /**
     * Load plugin.
     *
     */
    function mp14211509() {
    
     add_filter( 'https_local_ssl_verify', '__return_false' );
    
    }
    add_action( 'plugins_loaded', 'mp14211509', 11 ); // Might have to tinker with priority.

    Hi Daniel,

    I can confirm that your solution works!

    Thanks!

    @eugenmihailescu Thanks for your confirmation.

    This really works.
    Saved my day.

    Thank you, Daniel!

    WTF. so to get this plugin to work with dropbox I now have to have this mini plugin.

    Please tell me this is not your LONG term plan and just a quick fix.

    Hello, there is no long term plan. Because this problem depends on the Servers SSL configurations.
    This topic has nothing to do with the Dropbox SSL Problem. The Dropbox SSL Problem is talked in a other topic.
