Just installed TYPO3 8 LTS which worked like a charm.
Unfortunetaly downloading the distribution list afterwards failed. The extension list could not be updated either.
Error: Update Extension List Could not access remote resource https://repositories.typo3.org/mirrors.xml.gz.
It turned out to be related to XAMPP and its default PHP configuration.
So what to do?
- Open the xampp/php/php.ini
- Search for a line „;curl.cainfo =“
- Uncomment it
- Add the path to the curl certificate as value.
- In my case:
curl.cainfo = C:\OtherPrograms\xampp\apache\bin\curl-ca-bundle.crt
By the time I write this I use XAMPP 7.0.4
