1/11/16 WorkPress 4.4.1 New error, but different class structure
Fix: Edit the /wp-includes/class-http.php file
– change SSL as noted in code example below

‘decompress’ => true,
// ‘sslverify’ => true, rcg
‘sslverify’ => false,
‘sslcertificates’ => ABSPATH . WPINC . ‘/certificates/ca-bundle.crt’,
‘stream’ => false,
‘filename’ => null,
‘limit_response_size’ => null,

11/12/15 Fix for Pre WordPress 4.4.1

look for post from StanLight as follows…

I’m with Westhost too and their solution is as below:
Fix: Edit the /wp-includes/class-http.php file
modify the following line from (line 1410)
curl_setopt( $handle, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, $ssl_verify );
curl_setopt( $handle, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, false );

That fixes some problems but not all.

In my admin dashboard I still get the following under “WordPress News”:

RSS Error: WP HTTP Error: error:0D0890A1:asn1 encoding routines:ASN1_verify:unknown message digest algorithm
