Akeeba Kickstart Professional 3.6.0
S3::listBuckets(): [77] error setting certificate verify locations: CAfile: /etc/pki/tls/certs/ca-bundle.crt CApath: none


Akeeba Staff
Your host has an invalid certificate authority cache file path set up on the server. There is a workaround. Go to and save the page as a file called cacert.pem. Upload that file alongside kickstart.php on your site. Kickstart should now pick up this file instead of the invalid file your host specifies and eliminate this error.
