old php container says : curl: (60) SSL certificate problem: certificate has expired
Since 1 or 2 days my old php container (dockerhub php:5.4-apache) can't use curl anymore. this is the log when running curl inside this container.
$> docker run --rm -ti php:5.6-apache bash $> curl -X POST https://xxxxx.com curl: (60) SSL certificate problem: certificate has expired More details here: https://curl.haxx.se/docs/sslcerts.html curl performs SSL certificate verification by default, using a "bundle" of Certificate Authority (CA) public keys (CA certs). If the default bundle file isn't adequate, you can specify an alternate file using the --cacert option. If this HTTPS server uses a certificate signed by a CA represented in the bundle, the certificate verification probably failed due to a problem with the certificate (it might be expired, or the name might not match the domain name in the URL). If you'd like to turn off curl's verification of the certificate, use the -k (or --insecure) option. This same call works on a modern (updated) OS.
the reason is cacerts of the os are outdated
To update them you need to do the following
# https://medium.com/geekculture/will-you-be-impacted-by-letsencrypt-dst-root-ca-x3-expiration-d54a018df257 RUN sed -i 's/mozilla\/DST_Root_CA_X3.crt/!mozilla\/DST_Root_CA_X3.crt/g' /etc/ca-certificates.conf && update-ca-certificates
or the other not really working solution :
curl -k https://curl.se/ca/cacert.pem > cacert.pem # works : curl --cacert cacert.pem -X POST https://xxxxx.com apt-get install ca-certificates openssl x509 -outform der -in cacert.pem -out cacert.crt cp cacert.crt /usr/local/share/ca-certificates/ update-ca-certificates
