I’m trying to send an email with php and swiftmailer, using STARTTLS, but I’m getting a certificate error. I have root access to the SMTP server, and the certificate used is self-signed.
I’m using Debian on both machines (web server and smtp server)
PHP message: PHP Warning: stream_socket_enable_crypto(): SSL operation failed with code 1. OpenSSL Error messages:
error:14090086:SSL routines:SSL3_GET_SERVER_CERTIFICATE:certificate verify failed in [..]/lib/classes/Swift/Transport/StreamBuffer.php on line 97
PHP message: PHP Fatal error: Uncaught exception 'Swift_TransportException' with message 'Unable to connect with TLS encryption' in [..]/lib/classes/Swift/Transport/EsmtpTransport.php:294
Do I need to add my own certificate somewhere to get it accepted? Or is this some OpenSSL configuration error?
Editor’s note: disabling SSL verification has security implications. Without verification of the authenticity of SSL/HTTPS connections, a malicious attacker can impersonate a trusted endpoint (such as GitHub or some other remote Git host), and you’ll be vulnerable to a Man-in-the-Middle Attack.
Be sure you fully understand the security issues before using this as a solution.
Swiftmailer has now been updated to include an option for this. It can now be solved using the
setStreamOptions method from your
Swift_SmtpTransport instance rather than editing the swift class.
$transport = Swift_SmtpTransport::newInstance('smtp.server.com', 123, 'tls') ->setUsername('username') ->setPassword('password') ->setStreamOptions(array('ssl' => array('allow_self_signed' => true, 'verify_peer' => false)));
