curl: (60) SSL certificate problem: Invalid certificate chain
More details here:

curl performs SSL certificate verification by default, using a "bundle"
of Certificate Authority (CA) public keys (CA certs). If the default
bundle file isn't adequate, you can specify an alternate file
using the --cacert option.
If this HTTPS server uses a certificate signed by a CA represented in
the bundle, the certificate verification probably failed due to a
problem with the certificate (it might be expired, or the name might
not match the domain name in the URL).
If you'd like to turn off curl's verification of the certificate, use
the -k (or --insecure) option.

Dimensionss-Mac:messagingapp dimensionssolutions$

and that's my podfile:

# Uncomment the next line to define a global platform for your project
platform :ios, '8.0'

target 'messagingapp' do
# Comment the next line if you're not using Swift and don't want to use dynamic frameworks

# Pods for messagingapp

pod 'Firebase/Database'
pod 'Firebase/Auth'
pod 'Firebase/Storage'

target 'messagingappTests' do
inherit! :search_paths
# Pods for testing

target 'messagingappUITests' do
inherit! :search_paths
# Pods for testing

the problem was in the VMWare settings. these steps fixed my problem:

  • 1 Select the virtual machine and select VM > Settings.
  • 2 On the Hardware tab, select Network Adapter.
  • 3 Select Bridged: Connected directly to the physical network.
  • 4 If you use the virtual machine on a laptop or other mobile device, select Replicate physical network connection state. This setting causes the IP address to be renewed when you move from one wired or wireless network to another.
  • 5 Click OK to save your changes.
