@ontrack Thanks for the heads-up on sha1. I'll check into that.

Appreciate your thoughts Craig. Hopefully someone else might have encountered this - meanwhile I'll keep studying SSL.

comment How to Make a Self-Signed SSL Certificate which uses TLS?
I note that according to the sslscan, the supported ciphers are only SSLv3 which seems to be the problem - I think Firefox and Chrome have both removed support for those, requiring us to use TLS instead, but my server doesn't seem to be supporting that. Is this because of a deficiency in the certificate or in the server config?

Thanks Craig, but I just tried that and restarted apache and I'm still seeing the same error.

It's not those already running Linux that I'm eyeing. It's those which would like to run Linux but can't because there is no support available.

Thanks a_learner, for the information, although I have already accepted an answer.

I've a feeling you're on the right track. I've done that and I can see that although root and couple of other users were created for localhost, those created by the hosting control panel for users are all for 127.0.0.1 (except for one which is %). I think this probably reveals enough for me to fix it, so I will probably accept your answer in short while.

I didn't configure a socket in mysql. It looks like it is already existing. I posted information about that (above) and asked for more details on what needs to be configured. As it happens though, I have restarted both apache and mysqld several times in the course of attempting other tweaks (none of which have worked yet).

Currently I'm trying to use it via the Joomla install script. The http page asks for the hostname. If I choose 127.0.0.1 it works (but the script uses the entry later and fails because it expects resolvable name like localhost), but if I use localhost, connecting, to create the database, fails.
