We have some clients who use WordPress, and one of them wants to make use of the Spell Check feature.  Unfortunately when trying to use this feature, we get the following error message.

**********
Error response: <br />
<b>Warning</b>: fsockopen() [<a href='function.fsockopen'>function.fsockopen</a>]: unable to connect to ssl://www.google.com:443 (Unable to find the socket transport &quot;ssl&quot; - did you forget to enable it when you configured PHP?) in <b>/home/username/public_html/test/wp-includes/js/tinymce/plugins/spellchecker/classes/GoogleSpell.php</b> on line <b>85</b><br /> Could not open SSL connection to google.{"id":null,"result":[],"error":null}
**********

At first, the information I found pointed to the fact that I did not have the pspell module enabled within PHP.  I have since enabled it within PHP, recompiled, but still no go.

IIS or Linux?

If Linux you need to have CURL and SSL.  If for IIS - I haven't a clue!

Aha!  I hadn't enabled OpenSSL for PHP5.

Thanks a lot.
