NAME

       CURLOPT_CAPATH - specify directory holding CA certificates

SYNOPSIS

       #include <curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_CAPATH, char *capath);

DESCRIPTION

       Pass  a  char  *  to  a  zero  terminated  string  naming  a directory holding multiple CA
       certificates to verify the peer with. If libcurl is built against OpenSSL, the certificate
       directory must be prepared using the openssl c_rehash utility.  This makes sense only when
       used in combination with the CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER(3) option.

       The CURLOPT_CAPATH(3) function apparently does not work in Windows due to some  limitation
       in openssl.

       The application does not have to keep the string around after setting this option.

DEFAULT

       NULL

PROTOCOLS

       All TLS based protocols: HTTPS, FTPS, IMAPS, POP3S, SMTPS etc.

EXAMPLE

       CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
       if(curl) {
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "https://example.com/");
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_CAPATH, "/etc/cert-dir");
         ret = curl_easy_perform(curl);
         curl_easy_cleanup(curl);
       }

AVAILABILITY

       This  option  is  supported  by the OpenSSL, GnuTLS and PolarSSL backends. The NSS backend
       provides the option only for backward compatibility.

RETURN VALUE

       CURLE_OK if supported; or an error such as:

       CURLE_NOT_BUILT_IN - Not supported by the SSL backend

       CURLE_UNKNOWN_OPTION

       CURLE_OUT_OF_MEMORY
