Certificate not valid on Synology NAS server

Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better. Note: you must provide your domain name to get help. Domain names for issued certificates are all made public in Certificate Transparency logs (e.g. https://crt.sh/?q=example.com), so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is: http://mredard.diskstation.me/

I ran this command: Add a new certificate >> Get a certificate from lets encrypt. This succeeded however I am still not able to get it recognized by different browsers…

It produced this output: NET::ERR_CERT_AUTHORITY_INVALID

My web server is (include version): unsure

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Synology DSM 6.2.3-25426

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know): I don’t know

I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel): yes

The problem seems to be within your synology config/setup:


Thanks. What do you suggest I do? I don’t know what the analysis you posted means.

The link showed that we reached a system that is using a cert that covers the name “synology”.
Which means that we are able to reach your synology device; but the device isn’t configured to serve content via the name “mredard.diskstation.me”.
I suggest you read on how to add/change the names served by the synology device so that you can include the desired name.

I wrote to Synology support and they accessed my NAS drive to check what was wrong. They changed some settings regarding the certificate services, that were not active (or at least I couldn’t see them). Not sure what else they did but they did the trick.

Now the certificate works when I access from internet. However, I still have a warning message that the website is not secured when I access the NAS locally. Is that a problem or should I just leave it as is and not care about it?

What name do you use when connecting to the NAS locally?

What IP does that name resolve to from your system?
[you can use ping to show the IP]
