Recaptcha not working after upgrade to 3.1.1


I just upgraded our instance of OJS from to 3.1.1. Everything seems to be working fine except for that the recaptcha is no longer verifying correctly. I have attached a picture of the actual error message. Also, below is the PHP error:

PHP Warning: file_get_contents( failed to open stream: operation failed in C:\inetpub\wwwroot\ojs3111\lib\pkp\classes\form\validation\ on line 85


Tambien me interesa saber al respecto, tengo el mismo problema

Hi all,

Are there other warnings in the log? See e.g. the similar ones at this thread: php - reCaptcha file_get_contents(): SSL operation failed - Stack Overflow

Thank you! I was able to get the recaptcha working by pointing the cafile to the cacert in PHP.
