Subject [jira] [Commented] (AIRAVATA-1956) Upgrade PGA to use Laravel 5.2
Date Tue, 01 Nov 2016 17:09:58 GMT

Marcus Christie commented on AIRAVATA-1956:
-------------------------------------------

So it looks like SSL connections changed in PHP 5.6 to now validate certificates by default:
http://php.net/manual/en/migration56.openssl.php

There is an option, [verify_peer|http://php.net/manual/en/context.ssl.php#context.ssl.verify-peer],
that can be used to disable certificate validation on a per request basis. However, that option
isn't something that can be specified for the fsockopen call that the Thrift client makes
to open an SSL connection.

I think our options at this point are:
# Require and obtain a valid certificate for the Airavata API server
# Update the Thrift client to use a different method to open the SSL connection, one that
allows specifying verify_peer=FALSE
# Upgrade to the most recent Laravel that doesn't require PHP 5.6. That is, upgrade to 5.2
instead of 5.4.

I'm assuming that the first two options would require a fair bit of work. For now I'm going
to just pursue option #3, upgrading to Laravel 5.2.  That still gets us the benefit of being
on a more modern Laravel.
