    When attempting to activate Codeguard I get

    “Fatal error: Call to undefined function openssl_pkey_new() in F:\Share\Public_HTTP\ShareTrueLife\wp-content\plugins\codeguard\codeguard-plugin.php on line 638”

    I’m running WordPress on Windows server 2003 using fastCGI. I’m also using the pagelines interface. Any ideas?

  • I’m experiencing this too on one of my sites, although the error is different (it now throws an exception):

    Fatal error: Uncaught exception 'Exception' with message 'Plugin was unable to generate an RSA security key that is needed for secure communication with the backup service.' in /.../public/wordpress/wp-content/plugins/codeguard/codeguard-plugin.php:650
    Stack trace:
    #0 /.../public/wordpress/wp-content/plugins/codeguard/codeguard-plugin.php(155): CodeGuard_WP_Plugin::generate_plugin_keys()
    #1 [internal function]: CodeGuard_WP_Plugin::install('')
    #2 /.../public/wordpress/wp-includes/plugin.php(406): call_user_func_array(Array, Array)
    #3 /.../public/wordpress/wp-admin/plugins.php(150): do_action('activate_codegu...')
    #4 {main} thrown in /.../public/wordpress/wp-content/plugins/codeguard/codeguard-plugin.php on line 650

    My guess is my host (and yours) doesn’t provide the required PHP extension for this to work.’s page on the openssl_pkey_new() function has a commenter suggesting developers to adopt the phpseclib library instead, as it works with or without PHP’s OpenSLL extension. Maybe CodeGuard’s folks could look into it?
