I just got a new MacBook Pro and, when I try to install brew using the cURL line on the homepage, I’m getting an error:
/usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL http://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)" curl: (60) SSL certificate problem: unable to get local issuer certificate More details here: https://curl.haxx.se/docs/sslcerts.html curl performs SSL certificate verification by default, using a "bundle" of Certificate Authority (CA) public keys (CA certs). If the default bundle file isn't adequate, you can specify an alternate file using the --cacert option. If this HTTPS server uses a certificate signed by a CA represented in the bundle, the certificate verification probably failed due to a problem with the certificate (it might be expired, or the name might not match the domain name in the URL). If you'd like to turn off curl's verification of the certificate, use the -k (or --insecure) option. HTTPS-proxy has similar options --proxy-cacert and --proxy-insecure.
Now, I’d prefer not to disable SSL verification for cURL and I’ve seen the Mozilla cert that I can use to specify a new verification source but I want to make sure that this is right way to go before I try to install something. Why wouldn’t I be able to install brew or verify on a clean Mojave install (10.14.5)?
