OPENSSL file_get_contents(): Failed to enable crypto

I'm building a personal stock platform (not distributed). A component I would like to have is the EPS graph on this page:

https://eresearch.fidelity.com/eresearch/evaluate/fundamentals/earnings.jhtml?stockspage=earnings&symbols=AAPL&showPriceLine=yes

As you can see, the page is https, so after days of hammering things out, I enabled openssl and now it seems to work for all https pages such as the homepages of facebook and twitter, however it is still not working for the one I need.

file_get_contents('https://facebook.com'); /* works */
file_get_contents('https://twittercom'); /* works */
file_get_contents('https://eresearch.fidelity.com/eresearch/evaluate/fundamentals/earnings.jhtml?stockspage=earnings&symbols=AAPL&showPriceLine=yes');

I'm getting the warning:

Warning: file_get_contents(): SSL: crypto enabling timeout in C:\xampp\htdocs\index.php on line 3
Warning: file_get_contents(): Failed to enable crypto in C:\xampp\htdocs\index.php on line 3
Warning: file_get_contents(https://eresearch.fidelity.com/eresearch/evaluate/fundamentals/earnings.jhtml?stockspage=earnings&symbols=AAPL&showPriceLine=yes): failed to open stream: operation failed in C:\xampp\htdocs\index.php on line 3
Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in C:\xampp\htdocs\index.php on line 3

The only difference I can see is that the fidelity page has a triangle near the https label.

Ok I have found a solution. The problem is that the site uses SSLv3. And I know that there are some problems in the openssl module. Some time ago I had the same problem with the SSL versions.

<?php
function getSSLPage($url) {
    $ch = curl_init();
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER, false);
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $url);
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSLVERSION,3); 
    $result = curl_exec($ch);
    curl_close($ch);
    return $result;
}

var_dump(getSSLPage("https://eresearch.fidelity.com/eresearch/evaluate/analystsOpinionsReport.jhtml?symbols=api"));
?>

When you set the SSL Version with curl to v3 then it works.

Edit:

Another problem under Windows is that you don't have access to the certificates. So put the root certificates directly to curl.

http://curl.haxx.se/docs/caextract.html

here you can download the root certificates.

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_CAINFO, __DIR__ . "/certs/cacert.pem");
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, true);

Then you can use the CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER option with true otherwise you get an error.


Had same problem - it was somewhere in the ca certificate, so I used the ca bundle used for curl, and it worked. You can download the curl ca bundle here: https://curl.haxx.se/docs/caextract.html

Here is the example:

    $url = 'https://www.example.com/api/list';
    $cn_match = 'www.example.com';

    $data = array (     
        'apikey' => '[example api key here]',               
        'limit' => intval($limit),
        'offset' => intval($offset)
        );

    // use key 'http' even if you send the request to https://...
    $options = array(
        'http' => array(
            'header'  => "Content-type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded\r\n",
            'method'  => 'POST',                
            'content' => http_build_query($data)                
            )
        , 'ssl' => array(
            'verify_peer' => true,
            'cafile' => [path to file] . "cacert.pem",
            'ciphers' => 'HIGH:TLSv1.2:TLSv1.1:TLSv1.0:!SSLv3:!SSLv2',
            'CN_match' => $cn_match,
            'disable_compression' => true,
            )
        );

    $context  = stream_context_create($options);
    $response = file_get_contents($url, false, $context);

Hope that helps
