Note: in this post, I changed my actual domain name to [your_domain_name] to make it more generic.
I installed an SSL certificate for apache2 on my linux server. The certificate’s type is “positivessl wildcard”. I bought it on namecheap. So far, I know it is working just fine on Chrome and Safari for Mac. However, Firefox (for Mac) will issue a warning message of the kind that is not acceptable:
This Connection is Untrusted. Under “Techical Details”, it says:
[your_domain_name] uses an invalid security certificate. The
certificate is not trusted because no issuer chain was provided.
(Error code: sec_error_unknown_issuer)
I submitted my domain name to networking4all.
Error while checking the SSL Certificate!!
The SSL Certificate we found on this site is not meant for
[your_domain_name], probably this is another site on the same server.
We advise you not to submit any confidential or personal data to this
website because a secure connection could not be established with this
I don’t know what that means and I have no idea how to fix it.
Does anyone know what I need to do to solve this? Do I need to issue a new certificate. The thing I am particularly nervous about is: is the certificate busted forever and do I have to buy an entirely new one? Is it a configuration error in apache2?
Thank you very much in advance for your help!
It sounds like you forgot to install the intermediate certificates.
A copy of these should have been included with your certificate, named
ca-bundle or something similar. If not, download this from Comodo. Place it on your server, and set its location in Apache’s
