DLG_FLAGS_INVALID_CA Alternative Names Invalid

After running certbot --apache, I am able to access my site. However, I am given a “Certificate error” page with DLG_FLAGS_INVALID_CA.
https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/analyze.html?d=ps4mousetocontroller.com shows “Alternative names: INVALID”

My domain is:

I ran this command:
certbot --apache

It produced this output:
Congratulations! You have successfully enabled https://ps4mousetocontroller.com
You should test your configuration at:

My web server is (include version):
Apache Tomcat 9

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):
CentOS 7

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or 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):

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot):
certbot 0.34.2

you are using self signed certs, edit Apache setting to use cert created by certbot.

Certificate Path: /etc/letsencrypt/live/ps4mousetocontroller.com/fullchain.pem
Private Key Path: /etc/letsencrypt/live/ps4mousetocontroller.com/privkey.pem

Where are the Apache settings for this?

/etc/httpd/conf.d/ps4mousetocontroller-le-ssl.conf contains the following:

SSLCertificateFile /etc/letsencrypt/live/ps4mousetocontroller.com/cert.pem
SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/letsencrypt/live/ps4mousetocontroller.com/privkey.pem
SSLCertificateChainFile /etc/letsencrypt/live/ps4mousetocontroller.com/chain.pem

And /etc/httpd/conf.d/ssl.conf contains:

SSLCertificateFile /etc/letsencrypt/live/ps4mousetocontroller.com/fullchain.pem
SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/letsencrypt/live/ps4mousetocontroller.com/privkey.pem

Still, I am seeing the error message.

Hi @HelloWorld

I don’t use Tomcat. But there are additional steps required to use the certificate with Tomcat.

The “standard file names”

aren’t relevant.

There is a check of your domain - https://check-your-website.server-daten.de/?q=ps4mousetocontroller.com

There is a self signed used.


Tomcat uses either Java keystore files or pfx files.
