Ubuntu: How to enable OpenSSL for PHP Cli?


There is no major difference in the php.ini files located at /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini and /etc/php5/cli/php.ini. But <?php phpinfo(); ?> when accessed from a browser says OpenSSL support enabled whereas php -info | grep openssl executed in a terminal gives OpenSSL support => disabled (install ext/openssl).

I have the latest versions of libssl-dev and openssl installed. How to enable OpenSSL for cli version?


Same trouble for me. After spending some hours searching for a solution I find out that the command php is associated with an old version of php as against of the php5 command on my development mashine:

php -v  PHP 5.3.18 (cli) (built: Nov 20 2012 19:34:35)    php5 -v  PHP 5.5.3-1ubuntu2.1 (cli) (built: Dec 12 2013 04:24:35)  

So I reinstalled composer with the following command and now it works for me:

sudo curl -sS https://getcomposer.org/installer | sudo php5
