OpenSSL Windows binaries / solved

Post by lvedin » "To use PHP's OpenSSL support you must also compile PHP --with-openssl[=DIR]"

But what about the Windows binaries, are they compiled with openssl or do I must to compile my self to use SSL ?

REF Windows binaries: -> VC6 x86 Thread Safe (2011-Mar-22 13:29:30)

( I have try SSL and to configure for SSL, but never get it listed in phpinfo(), so I figure if its not compiled or if I'm not able to configure )

Thanks !

For info:
1. "Do NOT use VC9 version with binaries"
2. johnj wrote: I tested using apache (httpd-2.2.17-win32-x86-openssl-0.9.8o) and is working.

Ok, i'll try that.

Tried, now phpinfo() display SSL as "OpenSSL support disabled (install ext/openssl)" .

I may just need to enable SSL.

EDIT #2:

Now it works, I just enabled OpenSSL by add the lines php.ini


And then copied php_openssl.dll from the ext-folder, to directly under the PHP-folder, restaring Apache.

Thanks a lot!!!! I was facing exactly the same error and your post has helped me fix the issue.

openssl details phpinfo :
openssl support disabled (install ext/openssl) windows
Simple solution: Use the php-5.3.6-Win32-VC9-x86.msi installable available at

Thanks a ton mate.

I feel I should point out that 5.3.6 is several years out of date and you really ought to be using 5.6.x. I can't comment with certainty on the state of Windows + PHP + SSL, but I'm sure using a four year old version isn't the only solution.
