Solved: XAMPP – TYPO3 – Update Extension List fails

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.

I got:
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
