Support » Localhost Installs » Installation failed: Download failed. cURL error 60: SSL certificate problem: se

  • Hello,
    I’m working on a intern website for my training company.
    Every time i try to install a Plugin, Theme or any update the following Error shows up:
    Installation failed: Download failed. cURL error 60: SSL certificate problem: se.
    But it Used to work a few moths ago.
    It seems like i dont have a SLL Certificate ussaly i would contact my host about that but the server is hosted by ourselves. So I need to somehow load a certificate to my server.

    I know it is not a direct WordPress problem but I would be very grateful if someone has some tips that help me to install the certificate on the server.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    The curl error 60 can be caused by one of two things:

    1) the site from where curl is attempting to download has an invalid certificate
    2) the CA root certificate used by curl is invalid or has expired

    You can’t fix (1) since it’s a problem on another site. However, you can fix (2) by updating the CA root certificate used by curl. You can obtain a fresh copy of a CA root certificate from here:

    https://curl.se/docs/caextract.html

    Download the cacert.pem file, copy it to a safe place on your server, update the curl.cainfo directive in your php.ini file to point to this file, and restart Apache/PHP.

    Hi
    The only solution is to get your host to update the root certificate on your server.
    So you need to contact your server host and ask them to insert a new cacert.
    And the SSL certificate error occurs when the browser could not verify the SSL certificates returned by the server. When the error occurs the browser blocks the website and warns the user that the site cannot be trusted.
