    Was working fine. Now getting the following message: RSS Error: WP HTTP Error: cURL error 60: SSL certificate problem: certificate has expired

    Hello. I have the same problem. Have you solved it?

    Hi Brain, Ortho,

    Thanks for using Super RSS Reader.

    This issue might happen when the SSL certificate of the RSS feed URL had expired or something similar. A quick Google search confirms the same.

    Since the plugin didn’t receive any update in last 2-3 weeks there shouldn’t be any issue with the plugin, but with your website’s SSL certificate (or) the RSS feed URL’s SSL certificate.

    You can contact the RSS feed owner and inform them the same.

    As a workaround, can you please use a http:// URL instead of https:// URL for the RSS feed ?

    Thanks for the quick response

    Hi Brian,

    Like we discusssed over email, the RSS feed you provided were working on my website. Seems like some SSL configuration in your local site. Please do recheck them.

    I was able to find some discussion related to this online hope it is helpful.


    I have the same problem.

    Everything works fine under Windows and WAMP.

    I add on my blog
    the rss-Super-Reader, the already mentioned error message appears.

    Now I’ve also tried the whole thing in a staging environment. All other plugins switched off and still the same error appears.

    SSL is still valid – I checked.

    The attempt to solve the whole thing with http instead of https fails for me


    I tried the RSS feed on my website and RSS feed works perfectly. Please see image below.

    Also what is your website where you are placing the feed ?

    Can you also try below code in functions.php if it helps ?

    function srr_disable_ssl($feed, $url){
                CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYHOST => false,
                CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER => false,
    add_action( 'wp_feed_options', 'srr_disable_ssl', 10, 2 );
