PHP Question

Unable to find the socket transport "ssl" - did you forget to enable it when you configured PHP?

I'm googling for how to this error a lot of hours. I've tried all solutions from this topic without luck.

<? phpinfo(); ?>
(the only difference I'm using Appserver instead of IIS) it doesn't show anything realated to SSL. What else should I try?

The full error message:

<b>Warning</b>: fsockopen() [<a href='function.fsockopen'>function.fsockopen</a>]: unable to connect to ssl://smtp.gmail.com:465 (Unable to find the socket transport &quot;ssl&quot; - did you forget to enable it when you configured PHP?) in <b>C:\AppServ\www\webgitz\test\class.smtp.php</b> on line <b>122</b><br />
SMTP -> ERROR: Failed to connect to server: Unable to find the socket transport "ssl" - did you forget to enable it when you configured PHP? (27010016)


and code:

<?php

require_once "validation.php";

require_once "PHPMailer.php";


require_once "class.smtp.php";

$email= "foo@gmamcil.com";

$mail = new PHPMailer();
$mail->IsSMTP();
$mail->SMTPAuth = true; // enable SMTP authentication
$mail->Port =465; // set the SMTP server port
$mail->Host = "smtp.gmail.com"; // GMAIL's SMTP server
$mail->SMTPDebug = 2;
$mail->SMTPSecure = 'ssl';
$mail->Username = "xxxxxx@gmail.com"; // GMAIL username
$mail->Password = "*********"; // GMAIL password
$mail->AddReplyTo("XXXXX@gmail.com","AAAA"); // Reply email address
$mail->From = "XXXX@gmail.com";
$mail->FromName = "...."; // Name to appear once the email is sent
$mail->Subject = "...."; // Email's subject
$mail->Body = "Hello World,<br />This is the HTML BODY<br />"; //HTML Body
$mail->AltBody = "..."; // optional, commentA out and test
$mail->WordWrap = 50; // set word wrap
$mail->MsgHTML($msg); // [optional] Send body email as HTML
$mail->AddAddress("$email", "fooo"); // email address of recipient
$mail->IsHTML(true); // [optional] send as HTML

if(!$mail->Send()) echo 'ok'; else echo 'error';
?>

Answer

Check your php.ini file, on it, if you have this:

;extension=php_openssl.dll

change it to

extension=php_openssl.dll

After that, remember to restart Apache, either using any control panel that Appserver offers, or using the services windows on the control panel of the system.

Also be sure that php_openssl.dll is on a folder that the system can reach, many people use to solve the problem of dll location problems by copying them to C:\windows or C:\windows\system32. Although that shouldn't be necessary.

After that, execute a file with phpinfo and check that it's enabled.

I have read somewhere, can't pinpoint it, that some installation of that kind of wamps have more that one php.ini, but only one is really active, could it be that you have edited the wrong one?
