problems viewing https


I am having problems with viewing my site via https

I can open my site (m3printing com) with firefox and i receive a warning, but I can NOT open it with IE...any suggestions? I reinstalled the crt a few times and i also redid the CSR and got a new CRT thinking that would be the problem, but it isn't.

my SSL is issued from Genuvia

It works quite nicely on firefox / Linux.
The current cert is issued by Comodo, isn't it?

Perhaps your IE is b0rked (I mean more b0rked as it already is off-the-box).

Try Firefox, Opera or Mozilla if you don't need IE for anything special related to site management.

If it works with Firefox, place a banner or a message saying "specially designed for Mozilla Firefox", as people are already made to such stuff they will thing it's a kewl ultra-fashionable feature XD

I need more information. What version of apache are you running? What version of fedora are you running? kernel version? How are you installing the certificates? etc...

I have some good news and some bad news. The good news is you have done everything right to make it work in anything but IE. It looks like you made your own sercurity certificate. The problems with this and the solutions to this can be found at here. It looks like you need to get your cert signed by say verisign for it to work with IE. I HATE MICROSOFT! It just one of their flaws. See, firefox can download and install a self made cert. IE can not unless it is signed by one of those cert signers. Good Luck!

Yeah, when firefox can't verify the person that signed the certificate it prompts you saying unknown signer. So basically browsers have a built in list of signers that they are supposed to trust for https connections. IE try's to protect their unsuspecting users from walking into a trap from a signer not on the list. From my understanding these are the signing companys that IE will accept.

# Verisign
# Thawte Consulting
# CertiSign Certificadora Digital Ltda.
# IKS GmbH
# Uptime Commerce Ltd.
# BelSign NV/SA

I would try verisign first for they are the most widely used and known of the companies. So basically you setup is supurb and it is just IE not likeing how the certificate was signed.

DOWN WITH MICROSOFT AND THEIR STUPID PROOFING!

If you made a new cert on this server and sent it off to be signed they may have done something different with it. Call up that company and ask whats up if your old cert did once work on your last server.
