WordPressI recently installed WordPress on this server for a new blog. I've been using homebrew software for years, but I want to see whether I like WordPress enough to switch this blog and others to the platform. I need all of my sites to be usable on mobile devices, a goal that is a long way from being true today. The new blog is far better out of the box on mobile than anything I've created on my own.

In the two weeks I've been running WordPress 4.4.2, I encountered several problems where it could not connect to resources on other Internet sites. I could not install themes or plugins in the web interface because of this error message:

There are no HTTP transports available which can complete the requested request.

I also could not use the Customize page or make the WP to Twitter plugin send messages to Twitter. I could avoid the problem with themes and plugins by installing them on my own, but the Twitter problem had no workaround.

I have PHP configured with Curl, so I didn't expect a problem making HTTP requests to other sites. But WordPress now requires SSL support in Curl. My version of the software lacked SSL. I compile my web server software from source on Linux instead of relying on package managers, so I needed to recompile Curl with SSL support. I thought that would be easy.

After much weeping and gnashing of teeth, here's what I had to do:

  1. Compile and install OpenSSL.
  2. In directories from which I installed past versions of Curl, run the command make uninstall in each one to remove it from the server.
  3. Recompile Curl with the configuration option --with-ssl, which found OpenSSL.
  4. Recompile PHP with the configuration option --with-curl, which found the new SSL-enabled Curl.
  5. Reboot Apache.

The last thing I figured out was Step 2. Before that, when I compiled PHP it found a version of Curl on my server that did not support SSL and used it by mistake. This made WordPress angry.

WordPress is now mostly happy and can post to Twitter successfully. Customize works, as do themes and plugin downloads.

There are easier solutions if you use a package manager and the right versions of these programs are available. But I've been compiling source code by necessity across my LAMP stack for years. There were features I needed that weren't offered in packages.

I anticipate more posts like this one as I kick the tires on WordPress.

PURE HEART WORLD LOANS INC... HAS FINALLY DONE IT FOR ME, INDEED THERE IS LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL [pureheartloans@yahoo.com OR CALL/TEXT +1(501)232-0410]

BE CARE VERY CAREFUL HERE. Nobody can help you here or even suggest how you can get financial help. Any answer of a loan lender to your question, you MUST ignore, because they are SCAMS…real SCAMS…i was a victim of which i was ripped thousands of dollars…well thank God for a Christian sister who referred me to a loan organization formed by Mr. Paul Marcolm called Pure Heart Loans (P.H.L). They made my life a valuable one and gave it a meaning. When the sister gave me their contact, I contacted them. Then I requested for a loan with all the necessary evidence to prove that I actually needed a loan, they approved a loan of $45,000.00 USD and in 48 hours after meeting up to their necessary requirements, my loan was deposited in my bank account without collateral. Though i was very nervous with the loan organization at first due to my previous bad experiences, I hold on to my faith due to the fact that my beloved Christian sister referred me, and as God should have it, little did I know that my financial shortcomings has come to a final HALT. If not for that quick referral from a christian sister to that genuine source, I would have regretted my total life, because at that point in time i just divorced the father of my son, and my son (Kenneth) was faced with a life and death situation. I was faced with his hospital bills and i was also faced with foreclosure at my apartment. Details of this GODSENT organization won't be disclose for now for fear of impersonation (because it has been discovered that some persons are not really in need of financial help, but they just want to collect money from this genuine christian loan organization). And it is because of this reason they don't give out loan anyhow. You must be able to convince them very well, and provide good reasons/proofs to show that you really need a loan before they can approve it for you. They are reliable and trusted loan firm unlike many out there who rip people of their hard earned money,their interest rates is just 2% and little documentation is done. As i have earlier said, for security reasons i can only provide their email address and Phone Number. Feel free to contact them via Email at pureheartloans@yahoo.com OR CALL/TEXT +1(501)232-0410.......CONTACT THEM TODAY AND INDEED YOU WILL BE FREE FROM SCAMS OVER THE INTERNET
