Hi All - Finally figured it out ,issue was of - "The HTTP response test get an error “cURL error 60: SSL certificate problem” .In windows if you are using local by Flywheel ,need to update ca-bundle cert ,I found a good discussion and mentioning url which may be helpful .I took 3 days to find it.

  1. Take a backup of the site!
  2. Navigate here to download the cacert.pem file that most of the internet uses for this stuff:
  1. Replace WordPress’ ca-bundle.crt file with the recently downloaded cacert.pem . To be specific:
  • Delete WordPress’ ca-bundle.crt
  • Move cacert.pem file to wp-includes/certificates/caceert.pem
  • Rename wp-includes/certificates/caceert.pem to wp-includes/certificates/ca-bundle.crt

If still not resolved do below -
Open your - \site-dir\conf\php\php.ini.hbs and add - openssl.cafile=C:\Program Files\Common Files\SSL\cert.pem ,this is the same what you downloaded and just need to rename.
