LF's 'invalid certificate'

#269919

Postby stewamax » December 8th, 2019, 10:09 am

The access problems that have been reported by some users may relate to TWO security certificates being in existence.

One is issued by Starfield to subject common name (CN) lemonfool.co.uk with a SAN of www.lemonfool.co.uk

The other - issued by cpanel (with prime issuer Sectigo - formerly Comodo) is issued to elara.servers.prgn.misp.co.uk which is also listed in the certificate's Subject CN (the SAN is www.elara.servers.prgn.misp.co.uk) instead of lemonfool.co.uk. It this mismatch that causes access to fail.

That's odd.
I will look into it

My saved Favourites won't work today on IE or Edge.
I get a strange little page with Name... Last modified... Size... Description, which also happened a couple of days ago.

If I google For Lemon Fool forum via Edge, I can get in but only by ignoring a certificate warning.

Still using W7, btw.

Perhaps if/when the certificate is fixed it will (finally) cure my long-standing problem....

Any update on this?
My thread on this over on Computers, TVs & Phones here...viewtopic.php?f=39&t=20741

I'm still having issues and I note having had a trawl round the search engines (Google, DDG) that even the supposed LF https links aren't as they're pointing at the unencrypted site and that causes the browsers to get upset, if I try to bypass the certificate alert I get the cPanel alert. I appreciate any LF server changes will take a while for the SE crawlers to update their cache. The security certificate naming conflict appears to still be in place...

My bookmarks are all https (which is the only way I can access currently).

I understand the issues raised by the other BB thread here...viewtopic.php?f=21&t=20722 around contention ratios for the site with so many bot issues, but currently any casual browser is going to find it difficult to get onto the site, let alone register, and some of us who are registered are suffering log out loops making posting nearly impossible. (I'm posting this from Edge as Chrome has gone into a log out loop again and FF is playing up too...).

Looks like the certificate issue has been resolved (I just checked again via the MX tools HTTPS lookup), search engine results are accessing now without issue (for me anyway), and I'm not having any log out issues currently... :)
