Error establishing SSL connection: certificate verify failed.

Unable to authorize payment: Unable to connect to '' : Error establishing SSL connection: certificate verify failed.

This error is due to one of two things:

1.Check the certs configuration first to make sure it is correct.

There is a certs directory that is shipped with the MivaVM binary (the virtual Machine) that is installed on the server. In the configuration file (where all the engine configurations go) there needs to be a line that tells the Virtual Machine where this certs directory is.

If the configuration file is the mivavm.conf the line will be


If it is the httpd.conf the line will be

SetEnv MvCONFIG_DIR_CA /path/to/certs

Versions 4.10 and older of the VM:
2. If certs are specified correctly, do the following...

In your Miva VM certs directory:

1) Rename 7651b327.0 to 7651b327.old

2) Rename 7651b327.1 to 7651b327.0


NOTES: This error can happen with any payment gateway or shipping module that uses OpenSSL, even though it is NOT OpenSSL specifically that causes the error. This error message is NOT specific to any one module or service.

This error can also happen in MM5 when clicking on Domain Settings, since this action does a secure call to the License Manager.
