XF 1.5 GMail Smtp SSL Could not open socket on an ubuntu XAMPP Server

#1
Hi, I have configured my ubuntu server to send via gmail smtp ssl port, but every time I have tried with Could not open socket fail.
if my smtp setup as TLS then:
failed: stream_socket_enable_crypto(): SSL operation failed with code 1. OpenSSL Error messages: error:14090086:SSL routines:SSL3_GET_SERVER_CERTIFICATE:certificate verify failed

I have tested on my ubuntu with command:
openssl s_client -connect smtp.gmail.com:465 -crlf -ign_eof
so it should works.

I have also disable firewall with command: sudo ufw disable

I think that is maybe xampp has php installed in /opt/lamp/bin and ubuntu itself has also installed a php version. I also add path to /etc/profile with: export PATH=$PATH:/opt/lampp:

my xampp is xampp-linux-x64-5.6.8-0-installer.run
/opt/lampp/bin/php -v

Still unlucky, is it because xenforo use php in system wide?

my error logs is:

I have tested with XAMPP and in that version, Zend SMTP can not work with SSL.

Never really understood why somebody uses a package like that.. when with most Linux distro's it's all available to you. The only exception I would recommend is if on a CentOS box, using CentMin Mod.

BTW, it DOES work with a normally set up server (where you set up your HTTP server, your SQL server, your PHP processor instead of depending on a package created by someone else to configure it all for you).

Code:

Aug 23 23:09:52 whiskey postfix/qmgr[6688]: C9D7528A0568: removed
As for what PHP it uses.. whatever one the PHP processor for the HTTP server is configured to use (in this case, whatever one your XAMPP package has preinstalled/configured for you).

Also, if you are using a self-signed cert then that also will cause issues with the newer version of PHP. It's worth just spending the little bit of kaching for a real cert for the server.
