OpenSSL and XAMPP. osCommerce install extension.


I have a development server running Xampp and when I installed osCommerce the PHP extensions for cURL and OpenSSL where not installed. Here is how you get OpenSSL, Xampp, osCommerce on Apache to run.

Step-by-step how to use OpenSSL in XAMPP

  1. Open /apache/bin/php.ini file – there are a few php.ini files you could edit, but this one will work everytime.
  2. Find the line with ;extension=php_openssl.dll and uncomment it.
  3. Restart Apache.

OpenSSL should work fine now on Windows and Linux. You do not need to install any other packages.
