    I am also running the WordPress blog on Windows and getting a similar error:
    Twitter Exception Message: SSL certificate problem, verify that the CA cert is OK. Details: error:14090086:SSL routines:SSL3_GET_SERVER_CERTIFICATE:certificate verify failed

    Me too, running WordPress on Windows IIS and getting the same error.

    “Twitter Exception Message: SSL certificate problem, verify that the CA cert is OK. Details: error:14090086:SSL routines:SSL3_GET_SERVER_CERTIFICATE:certificate verify failed”

    The Twitter API information also does not show up. After visiting the support section for this plugin on WordPress.org I tried changing the URL in the Twitter application to https but that did not work either.

    Twitter Exception Message: SSL certificate problem, verify that the CA
    cert is OK. Details: error:14090086:SSL routines:SSL3_GET_SERVER_CERTIFICATE:certificate verify failed

    Seems that it is perhaps the responsibility of the developer of the application/plug-in to explicitly point to a current cacert.pem file – especially for WordPress users running on Windows AMP stacks such as Bitnami or WampDeveloper (Devside.net).

    Backupbuddy, Vaultpress, and Google Analytics plug-in’s all distribute a cacert.pem file and I assume use the proper CURL Reference such as:

    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_CAINFO, ’C:/accessible/by/apache/cacert.pem);
    and
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, true);

    Please review the following for reference:

    A good Mozilla.org CA Cert Bundle file is available here:
    http://curl.haxx.se/docs/caextract.html

    It would be greatly appreciated by many if you could quickly update the
    plug-in to call its’ own VALID cacerts.pem file.

    All,

    Simply open up your PHP.INI file and add the following line:

    curl.cainfo = “PATH_TO/cacert.pem”

    Get cacert.pem file from
    http://curl.haxx.se/docs/caextract.html
    and place it in the PATH_To.

    Example:

    I am running the WAMPDeveloper Stack on Windows from DevSide.net

    I added the following line at the bottom of my PHP.INI file
    curl.cainfo = “C:\WampDeveloper\Tools\curl\cacert.pem”

    Then I placed the cacert.pem downloaded above in:
    c:\wampdeveloper\tools\curl

    Works perfectly for most stacks, BUT NOT ALL, and resolves the issue for any plug-in looking for an updated CA.

    I would still like to see the developer properly include a cacerts.pem with the plug-in.

    Hope this helps,

    Jason Palmer
