NET::ERR_CERT_AUTHORITY_INVALID error


#1

Hi there,

I’m quite new to server setup etc… I tried to enable SSL using letsencrypt (using certbot, certonly as all attempts using --apache were unsuccesfull).
When surfing to https://www.smartglobe.be/ I get the NET::ERR_CERT_AUTHORITY_INVALID error (using chrome).
I’m running Centos 6.8, no cpanel/plesk and am using apache. and the insecure mark in Chrome.

In ssl.conf I have this:
DocumentRoot "/var/www/html/smartglobe"
ServerName www.smartglobe.be:443

I’m not sure why this isn’t working out… I would be thankful if anyone can help

Frederic

You aren’t using the Let’s Encrypt certificate in the config ( or you haven’t reloaded apache since changing the config).

What have you got for;

SSLCertificateFile /path/to/signed_certificate
SSLCertificateChainFile /path/to/intermediate_certificate
SSLCertificateKeyFile /path/to/private/key

in your config ?

Thank you very much. I didn’t realise I had to point the config to the right cert and keypaths. It looks to be working well now.

Please be sure that you used live and not archive, so that you’ll get the updated certificates automatically if you run certbot renew for renewing your certificates in the future.
