    This seems to be a problem with your OpenSSL and/or PHP module. Are any other PHP applications able to connect to a secured server?

    You’re right, I tried with a custom script and I couldn’t connect. I’ll let you know if I find something relevant to this case.

    Seems like it’s a PHP/OpenSSL bug

    Thank you! I’m sorry I can’t help you, but I will add this to the plugins documentation. Hopefully this would be fixed soon.

    🙂
    The alternative would be to use fsockopen or curl.

    Hmmmm…Only curl would work…

    Oh, that’s fine. Because curl is already implemented, but just used if ‘allow_url_fopen’ is disabled. So I can set curl to default and use fopen only if curl isn’t available.

    Quickhack:

    search:
    function get_remote_file($strURL)

    remove:
    if (ini_get(‘allow_url_fopen’))
    $strResult = file_get_contents($strURL);
    else

    it will look like this:
    function get_remote_file($strURL) {
    if (function_exists(‘curl_init’)) {
    $c = curl_init($strURL);
    […]

    There will be a patch soon.

    Thank you!

    Yep, resolved for me too: I have WP3.0.4 running its wp-admin backend over SSL and WP-Piwik works like a charm! (In some cases, also having WordPress HTTPS installed helps to resolve the last odd mixed content bits)

    I got this problem today. After upgrading to latest version it stopped working on two sites. I changed the key to a user key on one site and it started to work again, but a SSL site I can’t get it to work at all. I only get an error when I try to enter the user/pass.

    I see that the above patch is still installed. I don’t have time to look into this before next week, but I just post a note here in case someone else are experiencing problems.

    I’ve just checked and it’s still working for me
