How Do You Enable OpenSSL in PHP.ini?
« on: May 13, 2009, 03:42:17 PM »
Ok, Well i liked to get the forums sending Emails for newsletters and when Guests Register..
So i searched these forums using the Search button
and i came across a Thread talking about using Google Mail..
http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=307665.0
so i downloaded the openssl extension for php5 using Linux's Install Software repository, and created a googlemail account, followed the instructions in that thread.. and didn't work..
so i hit the search button again, and somebody else had the Forum displaying Error messages..
So i went and checked my Error Messages =]
Code: [Select]
Apply Filter: Only show the errors with the same message
Could not connect to SMTP host: -1214222980 : Unable to find the socket transport "ssl" - did you forget to enable it when you configured PHP?

so now i guess i need to enable it within the PHP.ini file..
how?

Am Still Confused at where i need to put it..
sorry for kinda being 'noob' to this, but i'm quite paranoid at mucking things up right now..
Code: [Select]

;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
; About php.ini   ;
;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
; This file controls many aspects of PHP's behavior.  In order for PHP to
; read it, it must be named 'php.ini'.  PHP looks for it in the current
; working directory, in the path designated by the environment variable
; PHPRC, and in the path that was defined in compile time (in that order).
; Under Windows, the compile-time path is the Windows directory.  The
; path in which the php.ini file is looked for can be overridden using
; the -c argument in command line mode.
;
; The syntax of the file is extremely simple.  Whitespace and Lines
; beginning with a semicolon are silently ignored (as you probably guessed).
; Section headers (e.g. [Foo]) are also silently ignored, even though
; they might mean something in the future.
;
; Directives are specified using the following syntax:
; directive = value
; Directive names are *case sensitive* - foo=bar is different from FOO=bar.
;
; The value can be a string, a number, a PHP constant (e.g. E_ALL or M_PI), one
; of the INI constants (On, Off, True, False, Yes, No and None) or an expression
; (e.g. E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE), or a quoted string ("foo").
;
; Expressions in the INI file are limited to bitwise operators and parentheses:
; |        bitwise OR
; &        bitwise AND
; ~        bitwise NOT
; !        boolean NOT
;
; Boolean flags can be turned on using the values 1, On, True or Yes.
; They can be turned off using the values 0, Off, False or No.
;
; An empty string can be denoted by simply not writing anything after the equal
; sign, or by using the None keyword:
;
;  foo =         ; sets foo to an empty string
;  foo = none    ; sets foo to an empty string
;  foo = "none"  ; sets foo to the string 'none'
;
; If you use constants in your value, and these constants belong to a
; dynamically loaded extension (either a PHP extension or a Zend extension),
; you may only use these constants *after* the line that loads the extension.
;
;
;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
; About this file ;
;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
; This is the recommended, PHP 5-style version of the php.ini-dist file.  It
; sets some non standard settings, that make PHP more efficient, more secure,
; and encourage cleaner coding.
;
; The price is that with these settings, PHP may be incompatible with some
; applications, and sometimes, more difficult to develop with.  Using this
; file is warmly recommended for production sites.  As all of the changes from
; the standard settings are thoroughly documented, you can go over each one,
; and decide whether you want to use it or not.
;
; For general information about the php.ini file, please consult the php.ini-dist
; file, included in your PHP distribution.
;
; This file is different from the php.ini-dist file in the fact that it features
; different values for several directives, in order to improve performance, while
; possibly breaking compatibility with the standard out-of-the-box behavior of
; PHP.  Please make sure you read what's different, and modify your scripts
; accordingly, if you decide to use this file instead.
;
; - register_long_arrays = Off     [Performance]
;     Disables registration of the older (and deprecated) long predefined array
;     variables ($HTTP_*_VARS).  Instead, use the superglobals that were
;     introduced in PHP 4.1.0
; - display_errors = Off           [Security]
;     With this directive set to off, errors that occur during the execution of
;     scripts will no longer be displayed as a part of the script output, and thus,
;     will no longer be exposed to remote users.  With some errors, the error message
;     content may expose information about your script, web server, or database
;     server that may be exploitable for hacking.  Production sites should have this
;     directive set to off.
; - log_errors = On                [Security]
;     This directive complements the above one.  Any errors that occur during the
;     execution of your script will be logged (typically, to your server's error log,
;     but can be configured in several ways).  Along with setting display_errors to off,
;     this setup gives you the ability to fully understand what may have gone wrong,
;     without exposing any sensitive information to remote users.
; - output_buffering = 4096        [Performance]
;     Set a 4KB output buffer.  Enabling output buffering typically results in less
;     writes, and sometimes less packets sent on the wire, which can often lead to
;     better performance.  The gain this directive actually yields greatly depends
;     on which Web server you're working with, and what kind of scripts you're using.
; - register_argc_argv = Off       [Performance]
;     Disables registration of the somewhat redundant $argv and $argc global
;     variables.
; - magic_quotes_gpc = Off         [Performance]
;     Input data is no longer escaped with slashes so that it can be sent into
;     SQL databases without further manipulation.  Instead, you should use the
;     database vendor specific escape string function on each input element you
;     wish to send to a database.
; - variables_order = "GPCS"       [Performance]
;     The environment variables are not hashed into the $_ENV.  To access
;     environment variables, you can use getenv() instead.
; - error_reporting = E_ALL        [Code Cleanliness, Security(?)]
;     By default, PHP suppresses errors of type E_NOTICE.  These error messages
;     are emitted for non-critical errors, but that could be a symptom of a bigger
;     problem.  Most notably, this will cause error messages about the use
;     of uninitialized variables to be displayed.
; - allow_call_time_pass_reference = Off     [Code cleanliness]
;     It's not possible to decide to force a variable to be passed by reference
;     when calling a function.  The PHP 4 style to do this is by making the
;     function require the relevant argument by reference.
; - short_open_tag = Off           [Portability]
;     Using short tags is discouraged when developing code meant for redistribution
;     since short tags may not be supported on the target server.

libraries that are meant for redistribution, or deployment on PHP
servers which are not under your controlbecause short tags may not

; to a certain size - you can use a maximum number of bytes instead of '

;       outputs chunks that are few hundreds bytes each as a result of
;       compression. If you prefer a larger chunk size for better
;       performance, enable output_buffering in addition.

Am still majorly confused, I only need to turn it on in the PHP.ini file, not install a crap load of other programs...

You'll have to ask at an OpenSuSe support forum, we provide support for SMF, not how to configure servers, sorry.

I'm new to this discussion, and found it with a search about securing MySQL's username and password that is stored in the settings.php file and, and as I read this thread, I additionally became interested in this thread's discussion about SSL (since I have an SSL certificate on my website through my webhost who is running on a Linux platform).

Now, I realize the above may be two topics (the settings file the 1st, and the SSL activation in the php.ini file the 2nd) and perhaps they do or do not overlap, but I do see the line mentioned in this thread in my php.ini.default file and can indeed delete the semicolon, but I'm uncertain what it will do and how or whether it impacts on protecting the settings file (which I doubt -- but don't know, so I'm asking).

Will it protect PHP files with SSL encryption no matter in which folder they reside (I understand SSL only applies to the root of the domain, so will this affect php files in all folders)?  This is something with which I've just never dealt, though I write basic PHP code for my websites and use MySQL as my databases (so I have basic familiarity with them), and I've just yesterday installed SMF as a forum engine on one of my sites (and it works just fine), but I'm trying to connect the dots about these particular security questions.

I'll try to restate my questions a little better:
  • I see the MySQL username and password in the settings.php file and worry that since it is in plain text that it can be seen by anybody viewing the page source in any browser.  I want to protect this information and I read that I could move the real file elsewhere and write a new settings.php referring to the moved file as an include, but would it still not be readable as viewable plain text when the include puts it all together for any browser to implement?  How do I protect my password is my main concern.  Is SSL the answer?...or moving the file?...or both?
  • I can activate the extension=php_openssl.dll line without the semicolon so it is active as mentioned in this thread, but I still don't yet know what that accomplishes for me since I didn't notice it stated here (my need has nothing to do with Google or a server at home as implied in the opening post, but my needs relate to my webhost and MySQL security).  Is there a link to something I can read that will explain why I would do this or what it does?
Thanks for bearing with me; this is new turf for me.

I am also new, but, i managed to fix my problem by going into the Install Packages wizard of the Linux KDE environment, then searching for ssl. i looked for a package that had the words php and ssl in its description and installed it. :)
I see, that you are paying for hosting, and i don't know what you could do with that.

Also, if you do use ssl for logging into your site. You WILL get a load of Certificate problems, which are solvable by just ignoring your browsers Warnings.

As for MySQL security, What is your host using so you can administer the MySQL database?
Webmin?
because Webmin is all i know... =/
If your host doesnt use Webmin, I'd reccomend it to him, as Webmin uses SSL by default, and unless you wish to pay £500+ for a SSL Certificate, just ignore the SSL warnings.

Hope this was helpful.
But i must go to sleep now, I'll try to reply in the morning, or when i come back from school.

Arantor, I thank you for putting in perspective that SSL won't help me achieve what I want. 

In line with this current thread's discussion, I do see in my webhost's php.ini.default file the line extension=php_openssl.dll with the semicolon in front of it, but I assume I should leave it commented out rather than fix what doesn't seem broken (well, I guess).  Anyway, SSL isn't what I need to change according what you've shared (and that was important to know).

I would like to interact more about protecting the settings.php file and placing it outside the webroot, but I don't think this thread is the place to do it, since the title here is about Enabling OpenSSL in PHP.ini.

Is there somewhere else more appropriate for this settings.php protection discussion?  I've got a few more questions, found a great link, and have some ideas too.  Since I think others might want to be part of this discussion, is there already one in progress, or should a new one be set up (I'll be glad to start it if one doesn't already exist -- just say the word)!

Wow, I just noticed I no longer have the verification box in which I have to type in the crazy letters!  How cool!

Arantor (and anyone else interested in the security of the Settings.php file discussion we've been having here), I've started a new thread in the area you suggested I move my concerns to and you can find my post here.
