CURLOPT_SSL_SESSIONID_CACHE(3) curl_easy_setopt options CURLOPT_SSL_SESSIONID_CACHE(3)

NAME

CURLOPT_SSL_SESSIONID_CACHE - use the SSL session-ID cache

SYNOPSIS

#include <curl/curl.h>
CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_SSL_SESSIONID_CACHE,

long enabled);

DESCRIPTION

Pass a long set to 0 to disable libcurl's use of SSL session-ID caching. Set this to 1 to enable it. By default all transfers are done using the cache enabled. While nothing ever should get hurt by attempting to reuse SSL session-IDs, there seem to be or have been broken SSL implementations in the wild that may require you to disable this in order for you to succeed.

DEFAULT

1

PROTOCOLS

All TLS-based

EXAMPLE

CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
if(curl) {

curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "https://example.com/");
/* switch off session-id use! */
curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_SSL_SESSIONID_CACHE, 0L);
ret = curl_easy_perform(curl);
curl_easy_cleanup(curl); }

AVAILABILITY

Added in 7.16.0

RETURN VALUE

Returns CURLE_OK if the option is supported, and CURLE_UNKNOWN_OPTION if not.
