Whenever I attempt to install a plugin to my Bitnami AWS Wordpress install, the install fails and I see errors like this in the Apache error_log: AH01071: Got error 'PHP message: PHP Warning: An unexpected error occurred. Something may be wrong with WordPress.org or this server's configuration. If you continue to have problems, please try the support forums. (WordPress could not establish a secure connection to WordPress.org. Please contact your server administrator.) in /opt/bitnami/apps/wordpress/htdocs/wp-admin/includes/translation-install.php on line 65
After doing some research on this and other support forums, it seems that this error is due to lack of an SSL cert on my server? Can someone help me confirm if this is the case or if something else is causing this? Will adding an SSL cert fix this issue?
For what it's worth, this server is on a corporate VPN/behind a firewall.
Thanks in advance for any assistance.
