Paypal SDK Adaptive Payments Unknown cipher in list: TLSv1

I'm trying to implement adaptive payments with SetPaymentOptions. I'm getting the following error:

SDK Exception
Type PPConnectionException

Message Unknown cipher in list: TLSv1

Detailed message Error connecting to https://svcs.paypal.com/AdaptivePayments/SetPaymentOptions

I dont know what this means. Any idea on how to get this working? I have this for part of my code in the PPHttpconfig:

public static $DEFAULT_CURL_OPTS = array(
CURLOPT_SSLVERSION => 1,
CURLOPT_CONNECTTIMEOUT => 10,
CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER => TRUE,
CURLOPT_TIMEOUT => 60, // maximum number of seconds to allow cURL functions to execute
CURLOPT_USERAGENT => 'PayPal-PHP-SDK',
CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER => array(),
CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYHOST => 2,
CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER => 1,
CURLOPT_SSL_CIPHER_LIST => 'TLSv1',
);

Answer

Seems if you are using NSS instead of OpenSSL, Having Cipher List is causing the issue, as TLSv1 is not in the NSS.

If you are having that error, you might want to run

php -r "print_r(curl_version());"

If the output has

[ssl_version] => NSS/...

It means, you have NSS. Then you can just remove the CURLOPT_SSL_CIPHER_LIST from the array

public static $DEFAULT_CURL_OPTS = array(
    CURLOPT_SSLVERSION => 1,
    CURLOPT_CONNECTTIMEOUT => 10,
    CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER => TRUE,
    CURLOPT_TIMEOUT        => 60,   // maximum number of seconds to allow cURL functions to execute
    CURLOPT_USERAGENT      => 'PayPal-PHP-SDK',
    CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER     => array(),
    CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYHOST => 2,
    CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER => 1,
);

EDIT: The release was made with the fix at : https://github.com/paypal/sdk-core-php/releases/tag/v2.5.8
