Cronjob not working, stops at lynx prompt


My cronjob is not working, it stops at lynx prompt

lynx SSL error:self signed certificate-Continue?

I use a self signed cert and dont want lynx to stop on that.

Is there anyway to bypass that?

What exactly is your cron job with lynx trying to accomplish?

Either way, your probably looking for the -force_secure option that lynx has possibly, not sure, check the man pages for more options.

The most secure way to do it is to make Lynx trust your SSL certificate rather then just turning off checking (that way a secure operation will not run if there is a man-in-the-middle giving you their certificate)

You can do that by getting the certificate you used to sign the cert, putting it in a certificate file, and then pointing Lynx to it by giving it the SSL_CERT_FILE option.
