Can't connect to HTTPS URL because the SSL module is not available.


If you are receiving the error message "Can't connect to HTTPS URL because the SSL module is not available," it means that your system or environment does not have the necessary SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) module or library installed.

To resolve this issue, you can follow these steps:

  1. Verify SSL Module Availability: Check if the SSL module is already installed on your system. For most operating systems, SSL is usually provided by default. You can verify by checking the version and availability of the SSL module for your specific programming language or framework.

  2. Install OpenSSL: If your system does not have the SSL module, you can install OpenSSL, which is a widely used open-source SSL library. OpenSSL provides the necessary functionality for secure connections. You can download and install OpenSSL from their official website. Make sure to download the version compatible with your operating system.

  3. Update SSL Configuration: Once installed, you may need to update the SSL configuration for your programming language or framework. This step might involve adding the path to your OpenSSL installation or updating the SSL/TLS version used.

  4. Restart Environment: After installing OpenSSL and updating the SSL configuration, restart your development environment, such as IDE or web server, to ensure the changes take effect.

  5. Test HTTPS Connection: Finally, test your HTTPS connection again. The error should no longer appear if the SSL module is available and configured correctly.

If you are using a third-party web hosting provider, you may need to contact their support team to ensure that the SSL module is installed and properly configured on their servers.

Please note that these steps may vary depending on the programming language, framework, or operating system you are using.
