I'm getting an error when trying to access an endpoint over ssl in FeedMe. eg https://jsonplaceholder.typicode.com/posts

The error is cURL error 35: SSL connect error

Error reported in web.log is [verbb\feedme\base\PluginTrait::error] Test: Unable to reach https://jsonplaceholder.typicode.com/posts. Message: cURL error 35: SSL connect error (see http://curl.haxx.se/libcurl/c/libcurl-errors.html)

I've tried running curl directly from commandline on the server and it runs fine: curl https://jsonplaceholder.typicode.com/posts prints the JSON.

PHP: 7.2.5 cURL: 7.19.7


Most likely the PHP curl version that's on your box is trying to connect to the endpoint using an older SSL protocol (TLS 1.0, 1.1, etc.) and the endpoint requires something higher (TLS 1.2, 1.3, etc.).


The command line version of curl is probably using a newer protocol.

  • Thanks this pointed me in the right direction. I updated curl on the box to 7.60.0 which uses OpenSSL/1.0.1e. All working now! – Matt Bindoff Jun 11 '18 at 10:07
