Module needs CA certificate to verify site certificate. Perhaps you should install Mozilla::CA. Alternatively you can specify path to CA certificate using SSL_ca_file or SSL_ca_path option. See LWP::Protocol::https.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Line 9 currently contains "use Mozilla::CA;" and when I call print Mozilla::CA::SSL_ca_file(); it outputs the correct file and the file has correct permissions.

    I tried defining SSL_ca_file before posting to no avail Any other ideas?

      After looking more closely on your example (it works for me with libwww-6.04 btw) I see that you're using libwww-perl-5.805. According to changelog libwww supports Mozilla::CA since version 6.00. Also older version uses Crypt::SSLeay for https support, so my previous link to LWP::Protocol::https was misleading. In order to specify CA certificate for Crypt::SSLeay you should set $ENV{HTTPS_CA_FILE}
