dengolius@think ~ $ curl -I https://www.profhome.co.uk
curl: (51) SSL: certificate subject name (profhome-store.ru) does not match target host name ‘www.profhome.co.uk

I get errors with curl and if I try to open www domain name with using https… What I doing wrong?


www.profhome.co.uk uses an invalid security certificate.
The certificate is only valid for profhome-store.ru


This section:

location /.well-known {
root /home/profhome.co.uk/www/.well-known;
allow all

above the return 301 line
(and similarly in each virtual host configuration file)


I have already generate certificates, but I see the same error in browser


https://www.profhome.co.uk/ is showing the cert for "profhome-store.ru"
That’s web server configuration - SNI.
