NAME

CURLOPT_SSL_SESSIONID_CACHE - enable/disable use of 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.
