    SSL Certificate problem

    In IE i get this message
    There is a problem with this website's security certificate
    Now granted I just set it up like 10 minutes ago and would like to know if there is a propagation period for SSL cert's. I have never set one up before however I followed all the directions to the 'T' but its showing as a self signed certificate. This is one of the free ones you get when you buy a domain at namecheap. Will this warning always show or does it go away after s propagation period?

    Does it have to be installed twice once for the www. and once for the none www? or should work both ways installing only once?

    I'm trying to remember, but isn't there a button on that IE message that will give you more information?

    Can you get more information if you access the site in Firefox?

    What is the URL? (PM if necessary...)

    https://domain.tld and https://www.domain.tld will require two certificates unless you obtain a "wildcard" SSL certificate.

    Most of the new SSL certs now include www and no-www, but still can be problem if its not. As for Mr.Bill there is no propagation period for SSL certificate. Once installed it should work immediatly, you will have to post the error message here.

    I have stopped working on this since it didn't work as I thought it should, after following the directions I loaded up the site and went to https page and it gave the popup for a self signed certificate only way to access the sit was to add the permission. That's what I want or how I wanted it to work so I am assuming the free certificate from namecheap was the cause of this and in order to do it right I need to buy one of the higher priced ones and pay someone to install it.

    However thanks to those who replied I do appreciate the effort.

    Your server may not have the CA root certificate, you will have to go to the vendor you got the cert from and get there CA root cert and include in the option "ca bundle" box in the SSL install page. This may solve your problem.

    Hey Mr.Bill, yeah you may not have the trusted intermediate CA certificates. Here is a link from Comodo that talks about the installation of the PositiveSSL cert. In Step II it also give a link to the ca-bundle with all the necessary intermediate certs.

    ok gave it another run. I installed it on my proxy I dont get the popup window in FF but it is showing a "Warning: contains unauthenticated content" I assume this might be a link on the site but not sure how to figure out which one/s are causing this issue.

    Will it always show that non secure items on all the pages viewed through the proxy?

    Yep working good now.

    The "Warning: contains unauthenticated content" is mostly due to the Ads. (though a couple other things might be causing it as well)

    On the Home page, the Adsense ads will always be unauthenticated because Google currently doesn't offer SSL capable ads. Also your 'yshout' css file is loading from http:// instead of https:// , etc. Might be a couple other things too. This was just from a quick glance at the source, and using firefox's 'Page Info -> Media'

    On the proxified pages, the Adbrite ads and your Centurian tracking-image are the cause.

    Cheers!
