[Solved] Certificate Errors

Your Security certificate is giving errors just thought you should know. The Error I am getting is Mixmatched Address:
The security certificate presented by this website
was issued for a different website's address.

Certificate error for this website

Postby Richarda44 » Fri Nov 08, 2013 12:27 am

When I try to visit this forum Windows 7 gives this certificate warning saying the website and certificates come from different address.

I have to ignore the dire warning and click "visit the site anyway? (not recommended)

Could someone explain what might be happening.
thanks

What web browser (name and version number) are you using? I don't see any warning using IE11 on Windows 8.1 and when I view the certificate it shows *openoffice.org as the address.

I don't see any error using IE11 or Firefox 25 on Windows 8.1. When I view the certificate, it shows an address of *.openoffice.org. If you click the lock icon in the web browser address bar and view the certificate, does it show a different address?

I asked about this problem on the mailing list and Jan gave this answer:

"Your Security certificate is giving errors just thought you should know.
The Error I am getting is Mixmatched Address:
The security certificate presented by this website
was issued for a different website's address."

This error should not be random but comes every time a page that contains
src= or href= http://xyz is loaded.

The error is a serious warning, that the page you are loading contains
unsecure content (http://).

This is the part I have warned about earlier (and dave f. has taken care of
for www). The databases of forum and wiki should be updated (any vm admin
can do that), so that all relevant (ref inside forum/wiki)
src=http://xyzand href=
http://xyz are changed to src=//xyz and href=//xyz.

At this point, only Imacat can solve the problem by updating the DB.

The issue might be at an earlier stage (i.e., even before we include HTTP-served content). See https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-7131

We now have the final answer from the Apache Infrastructure team: it all depends on the client (the browser and operating system you are using).

If you don't have SNI support (most common problematic case: Internet Explorer 8 on Windows XP) you will get the warning. This is due to how the certificate is configured and apparently can't be changed. See https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-7131

This probably closes the conversation.
