Unable to find the wrapper "https"

Unable to find the wrapper "https"

Unable to find the wrapper "https"

Message : file_get_contents() [function.file-get-contents]: Unable to find the wrapper "https" - did you forget to enable it when you configured PHP?

I am trying to use file_get_contents() over an SSL connection and it would seem its causing some problems!!

Can anyone shed any light on this?

Thanks in advance,



RE: Unable to find the wrapper "https"

Usually to use PHP to read or write over an SSL connection, it requires that you re-compile the executable from source and enable OpenSSL support. Obviously, you'll also need the the libraries for OpenSSL as well.

RE: Unable to find the wrapper "https"

Hi, thanks for your reply... I am getting the web server people to recompile as we speak and make sure that everything for OpenSSL was ticked properly because this has already been done once :-S

So I am guessing that I should still be able to use fle_get_contents() etc over SSL and there must be a problem somewhere?



RE: Unable to find the wrapper "https"

It looks like OpenSSL didn't compile properly/at all before - the phpinfo suggested it was there, but it wasn't enabled.

All sorted now,



RE: Unable to find the wrapper "https"

Great it works, but the current security reccomendations are to not allow http as a name in the file system commands (for security reasons).
Have a look at curl which is probably safer.
