I’ve got an odd problem. Updated my LAMP dev machine (Debian) to PHP 7. Afterwards I cannot connect to a specific TLS encrypted API via Curl anymore.
The SSL cert in question is signed by thawte.
curl: (60) SSL certificate problem: unable to get local issuer certificate
which—of course—is also signed by Thawte works.
I can access the API site via HTTPS on other machines, e.g. my Desktop via curl and in the browser. So the cert is definitly valid. SSL Labs rating is A.
Any other Curl requests from my dev machine to other SSL encrypted sites work. My root certs are up to date. To verify, I ran
update-ca-certificates. I even downloaded http://curl.haxx.se/ca/cacert.pem to /etc/ssl/certs and ran
Still the same error.
Is there any way to debug the verifcation process and see which local issuer certificate curl (or openssl) is looking for but not finding, i.e. a file name?
curl -vs https://example.com
tells me (IP+Domain anonymized)
