Are there any diagnostics or fixes for this issue?

**** FIXED ***

I received a cURL error 60 on the dashboard welcome page.

Investigating this further (google) I found this thread -


  1. Download and extract cacert.pem from here (a clean file format/data)

  2. Put it in : C:<install dir>\php\extras\ssl\cacert.pem

  3. Add this line to your php.ini curl.cainfo = “<full path and filename from step 2>”

  4. restart your webserver/Apache
