Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I installed a wildcard SSL certificate, but somehow I ended up with an error.

When accessing the website I am getting:

The identity of this website has not been verified.
• Server's certificate does not match the URL.
• Server's certificate is not trusted.

The CN is like *.domain.com and that goes with all the subdomains, too. I think I am missing something and that's why this is not working.

crt file:

This is a very poor question, it doesn't even show the certificate. I'll answer it because it seems like an obvious beginner mistake but in the future please try to add relevant information –  gparent May 9 '12 at 20:50
    
Look at the certificate the browser is getting and see if it's the one you're expecting. –  Safado May 9 '12 at 20:50
    
crt file added, sorry for the delay –  James Mitchee May 9 '12 at 20:57

Your certificate works, if you want to not have scary warnings then you can go and buy a signed one from a trusted CA. You can't use self-signed certificates and expect them to be trusted on the internet. –  gparent May 9 '12 at 21:07
    
it was the problem of the certificate conflict, now working correctly. –  James Mitchee May 10 '12 at 17:05

The certificate is self-signed. That's the only error I get when connecting to https://geo.uttamschool.net/, and it's an entirely correct error. I'm not, therefore, entirely sure what the problem is.

Either you are not serving the correct certificate or you're trying to browse domain.com.

If your CN is *.domain.com, then browsing to domain.com will not work. *.domain.com does NOT mean *.com. One way to make it work is to have domain.com as the CN, and *.domain.com as the subjectAlternateName. This kind of certificate will be valid for both straight domain.com and all subdomains.

"Is not trusted" is caused by you not trusting the certificate. This is a self-signed certificate, trusting it in your favorite browser or OS store will work. On Firefox, this means adding an exception.

please check the crt file –  James Mitchee May 9 '12 at 20:58
    
That certificate will be valid for any subdomain under .uttamschool.net, but not for uttamschool.net. It is flagged as a CA certificate though which is weird. –  gparent May 9 '12 at 20:59
    
check geo.uttamschool.net –  James Mitchee May 9 '12 at 21:00
    
geo.uttamschool.net works just fine when you trust the certificate. –  gparent May 9 '12 at 21:01
