Woocommerce errors on creating REST API KEYS

  • by
  • php


Ref to you create a URL that should return you to your site/application when you create a Rest API key.

But I got the next 2 messages when wish to connect my PHP app to Woocommerce in a local development environment and using a self-signed certificate.

Error: A valid URL was not provided..


Error: cURL error 60: SSL certificate problem: self signed certificate.

both come from different places. I resolved my problem with the first message by adding this code in functions.php in theme:

function turn_off_reject_unsafe_urls($args) {
    $args['reject_unsafe_urls'] = false;
    return $args;
add_filter( 'http_request_args', 'turn_off_reject_unsafe_urls');

and second by adding:

add_action('http_api_curl', function( $handle ){
//Don't verify SSL certs
curl_setopt($handle, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, false);
curl_setopt($handle, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYHOST, false);

// //Use Charles HTTP Proxy
// curl_setopt($handle, CURLOPT_PROXY, "");
// curl_setopt($handle, CURLOPT_PROXYPORT, 8888);
}, 10);

I hope this will help you.

!! Don’t use this code on a live server. This Code is only for local/localhost development and you have a problem with Self signed certificate !!!
