Working with SS API SSL Error

edited 12/09/19 in Archived 2017 Posts

I am trying to access my smart sheet from a php program via the API. Every time I run the program I get the following error, any idea why and how to fix it? (Bearer is my token)

Error:Unknown SSL protocol error in connection to api.smartsheet.com:443


$ch = curl_init();

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, "https://api.smartsheet.com/2.0/sheets/xxxxxxxxxxxxx");


curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_CUSTOMREQUEST, "GET");

$headers = array();

$headers[] = "Authorization: Bearer xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx";

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, $headers);

$result = curl_exec($ch);

if (curl_errno($ch)) {

    echo 'Error:' . curl_error($ch);


curl_close ($ch);
