API Helix request with PHP curl - channel infos

how do I get user informations by name with helix in PHP?
I am new to curl and cant make this work.

This is what I have, and the result is boolean: false:

In the end I try to get channel subscriber images with url by channel name.
Maybe you can help me with that too, but this is not necessary.

Thanks :slight_smile:

curl_exec returning FALSE indicates a failure in the request. Check curl_error.

The error is:

string 'SSL certificate problem: unable to get local issuer certificate' (length=63)

I am working on localhost with no SSL

EDIT: I found the issue myself, this fixed it:
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, false);

Thanks for pointing curl_error out.

That’s fine-ish for testing, but for any production system you should fix the certificate verification instead of disabling it as it’s a critical part of SSL/TLS.

Already downloaded the certificate cacert.pem and set the path in php.ini.
Now I can work without disabling the certificate verification.

Sounds like your install is missing the standard cURL certificates bundle. Or you didn’t install anything beyond “os default”

What operating system are you running off?
