Invalid security certificate?
« on: September 20, 2017, 07:25:52 PM »
For some reason, in all my years of logging into Filmwasters, only today was I given a security error. Maybe it's because I used Firefox for the first time in years, but then when I tried Chrome it also threw up an error. The Firefox error is more verbose:

Quote
www.filmwasters.com uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is only valid for the following names: abluebellforest.com, www.abluebellforest.com The certificate expired on Friday, April 28, 2017, 7:59 PM. The current time is Wednesday, September 20, 2017, 2:20 PM. Error code: SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN


So not only is the cert expired, but it's for a different domain ??? Can we look into getting this fixed? FWIW, my hosting provider, Bluehost, offers free, autorenewing SSLs, and I know through my day job that Squarespace sites also have free, autorenewing SSLs through Let's Encrypt.

This is very strange...
We're already hosted by bluehost, so there shouldn't be a problem there.
Also, I'm on the site using firefox and everything looks OK... though I don't have the HTTPS everywhere plugin installed...

I'm going to check it out a bit and report back.

I just installed HTTPS everywhere and can't get the site to go into secure mode... hence no certificates are asked for.

What happens when you add https:// to the browser address for this page?

Yep, that does cause the problem you're talking about.

I'll get in touch with Ed and see what he thinks about it all
