Using requests in Python3 Windows via Pycharm, and receiving SSL Module Not Available Error
I've spent hours trying to figure out what could be causing this. I've reinstalled Anaconda, and I am completely stuck. When running the following
def Earlybird(daycount): url = 'https://msft.com' response = requests.get(url) print(response) Earlybird()
I receive the error
requests.exceptions.SSLError: HTTPSConnectionPool(host='msft.com', port=443): Max retries exceeded with url: / (Caused by SSLError("Can't connect to HTTPS URL because the SSL module is not available."))
I have no idea what could be causing this. As Anaconda is a recent install, I would assume everything would be up-to-date, so I'm unsure if this is pointing to the wrong SSL ? I am a bit new to python, so thanks for your patience. -
Don't know if this has been solved yet but I was getting similar problems with Anaconda python 3.7.3 and Idle on Windows 10. Fixed it by adding:
<path>\Anaconda3 <path>\Anaconda3\scripts <path>\Anaconda3\Library\bin
to the PATH variable.
I am on Windows 10, I had the problem with a new fresh installation of Anaconda on python 3.7.4, this post on github solved my problem:
( source: https://github.com/conda/conda/issues/8273)
" My workaround: I have copied the following files
from D:\Anaconda3\Library\bin to D:\Anaconda3\DLLs.
And it works as a charm! "
Windows Users need to set below paths:
System wide (requires restart):
I got it solved by installing OpenSSL according to the following recommendation: https://github.com/conda/conda/issues/8046#issuecomment-450515815
Corresponding ticket in the conda repository: https://github.com/conda/conda/issues/8046
Update: the problem (in PyCharm) should be solved in 2019.1 version (Early Access Preview build is already available https://www.jetbrains.com/pycharm/nextversion/).
this issue was driving me insane until i found this post which said to do
brew upgrade python3
(not using pycharm, using sublime)
I've installed the binaries from here: https://slproweb.com/products/Win32OpenSSL.html This site is mentioned on the official OpenSSL wiki. It solved my problem
I don't have Anaconda so the steps I took are:
brew uninstall python3
brew install python3
Your Xcode (10.2) is too outdated. Please update to Xcode 11.3 (or delete it). Xcode can be updated from the App Store.**So, I deleted Xcode since no update would show, then I reinstalled it.
xcode-select --installafter. If you don't.. you'll get an error:
The following formula python cannot be installed as binary package and must be built from source. Install the Command Line Tools: xcode-select --install
brew install python3and it completed successfully.
Used this script just to see if it works
import requests r = requests.get('https://www.office.com') print(r)
Ran the script python3 and python3.7 and output was
<Response > instead of SSLError.
I have faced it on 04/2020. These are the options that I tried and the last solution get me through.
Requests module works fine when I use in Spyder IDE but when I try to execute the script in windows it fails with SSL error. It works fine for HTTP requests but for HTTPS requests i got SSL error.
Solution that fixed it:
Solution from: https://github.com/conda/conda/issues/8273
I have copied the following files from Anaconda3\Library\bin to \Anaconda3\DLL
I had a similar problem on Windows 10 using Conda and Python 2.7.2
After trying many, many solutions I came across this response which suggested that there is an issue with openssl in that build.
Once I downgraded python to 3.7.1 (build h33f27b4_4) everything worked fine.
After dealing with the same issue on Windows 10, the solution is fairly straightforward:
Run your code again and it should work. I had upgraded both Anaconda and PyCharm, and had the issue with all combinations of versions until I ran
conda init, which adds to your PATH much like the answer from Paul Stevens . Don't skip #3—restarting PyCharm or any other interpreter is key.
This errors happens in VSCode with Python 3.7.3 but works fine in IDLE editor in Windows 10 with Python 3.7.0.
Make sure you create the project with conda environment option selected.
My problem solved by recreate the project and select "conda" from "New environment using" options
There is no need to add paths to environment if you use the Anaconda Prompt.
Start the Anaconda prompt change to your directory and run your script or start your editor from there. This will ensure you are in the full Anaconda environment and the SSL error will stop.
Whats the difference between command prompt and Anaconda Prompt? See this SO answer to what is the difference between command prompt and anaconda prompt.
After spending a few hours going through the Anaconda documentation, Github issue tickets and so on, I finally managed to get it working on Windows 10 64-bit (Anaconda 3.7). The thing it worked for me was to install the Win64 OpenSSL v1.1.1d binary file from https://slproweb.com/download/Win64OpenSSL-1_1_1d.exe.
NOTE: The version seems to matter! I have tried the 1.1.0L (as suggested in other comments and responses) but with this version, the problem persisted. If you keep having problems after installing some OpenSSL libs, keep trying until you find the right version. For Anaconda 3.7 on Windows 10 it seems that the right one is the 1.1.1d. I did not try the light version.
Things that did not work for me:
libsslDLLs to a different location (see https://github.com/conda/conda/issues/8273#issue-409800067)
Encountered the same SSL error while doing a pip install after a fresh anaconda installation. What helped was activating the base environment before doing the pip install.
activate base from cmd and then run your python script. You can also try
'conda run -n base python script.py' Reference - https://github.com/conda/conda/issues/8487
I had the same thing on my Windows 10 installation.
Anaconda3 would not open Anaconda Navigator before I copied
libcrypto-1_1-x64.dll and libssl-1_1-x64.dll from
Anaconda3\Library\bin to \Anaconda3\DLL.
Once I did that
pip install in the base environment worked fine but not in another environment I created. I had to do the same as above in the new environment.
That is, copy
libcrypto-1_1-x64.dll and libssl-1_1-x64.dll from
\<env folder>\Library\bin to
\<env folder>\DLL then it worked fine.
On Windows 10 - this is a workaround and does not fix the root issue however, if you just need to install something and move on; Execute the following at the command prompt, powershell or dockerfile:
pip config set global.trusted_host "pypi.org files.pythonhosted.org"
I was also facing the same issue in my team mates machines. Fixed the same with adding anaconda path. In my system below is path of Anaconda:
C:\ProgramData\Anaconda3\Scripts C:\ProgramData\Anaconda3\ C:\ProgramData\Anaconda3\Library\bin
Reinstalling python based on instructions from here solved this problem for me: How can I install a previous version of Python 3 in macOS using homebrew?
Note: This issue was fixed on windows 10 I was facing same issue with virtual environment on windows 10. Issue was solved with running CMD as administrator and creating new virtual environment.
Solved by doing the following in my windows 10:
mklink "C:\Users\hal\AppData\Local\Continuum\anaconda3\DLLs\libssl-1_1-x64.dll" "C:\Users\hal\AppData\Local\Continuum\anaconda3\Library\bin\libssl-1_1-x64.dll" mklink "C:\ProgramData\Anaconda3\DLLs\libcrypto-1_1-x64.dll" "C:\ProgramData\Anaconda3\Library\bin\libcrypto-1_1-x64.dll"
I use VSCode to edit and debug and the only solution that worked for me was to edit the environment variables in windows.. Apparently this causes issues but I'm not sure what they are.
Running from the Anaconda prompt (as suggested by sayth) was NOT an option for me. Or perhaps the suggestion was to run the anaconda prompt and the from the anaconda prompt somehow start VSCode. Doesn't sound like a reasonable request.
This appears to be a long running chronic issue without a definitive global answer that works for everyone.
going to the website: gives me following information from developer tool and looking at headers. (right click --> inspect. then open network tab and check headers)
So we see we need to perform a request to HTTP, not HTTPS.
import requests def Earlybird(): url = 'http://msft.com/' response = requests.get(url) print(response.text) if __name__ == '__main__': Earlybird()
I use this "Win64 OpenSSL v1.1.1h" -> EXE from https://slproweb.com/products/Win32OpenSSL.html
i've installed it and works
