Spice Shaker Problems

Spice Shaker is a new tool to help you automatically install/update UserSpice addons. It works on most configurations, but as we find fixes for common problems, we will post them here.

Spice Shaker doesn't work on WAMP
-Download ca-bundle.crt from
-Put the file in c:\wamp64\
-Change php.ini to the following

Uncomment extension=php_curl.dll in php.ini

Issue: Curl is not enabled
– Edit php.ini (You can find the link to your proper php.ini file on the UserSpice Dashboard Snapshot
Remove the ; before ;extension=curl
Restart Apache/FPM

Issue: Curl not installed
– Install it. On Debian/Ubuntu that's
sudo apt-get install php-curl
sudo service apache2 restart

Cannot write to users/parsers
– Make sure you own them
In Debian/Ubuntu this is most likely
sudo chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www
