Linux server configuration https ssl certificate.
2. curl_ request to obtain the content (see the following method curlGet ())

     * get the content
     * @param $url
     * @return bool|string
    function curlGet($url)
        $ch = curl_init($url);
        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, false);
        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYHOST, false);
        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_USERAGENT, 'Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/55.0.2883.87 Safari/537.36');
        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, 30);
        $content = curl_exec($ch);
        return ($content);

3.Use file_get_contents() function to skip https authentication

        $streamOpts = [
            'ssl' => [
                'verify_peer' => false,
                'verify_peer_name' => false
        $html = file_get_contents($pageUrl, false, stream_context_create($streamOpts));
