Can someone help me understand how to verify that my SSL cert is installed properly (or troubleshoot why it isn't)?
I installed GoDaddy SSL certificate on my Apache server. Some users are still reporting issues (Some versions of IE say "This page cannot be displayed" with no further explanation), and openssl says that there is a 'self signed' certificate in the chain. Please note, this is not a self-signed cert. It is signed by GoDaddy. This article has a related answer that did not work: https://stackoverflow.com/a/4106224/1723405
Here are the steps I have taken:
Step 1: Generate a private key
openssl req -out CSR.csr -new -newkey rsa:2048 -nodes -keyout privateKey.key
Step 2: Go to GoDaddy and re-key by pasting
Step 3: Install the crt and bundle file in Apache and restart.
// In <VirtualHost> SSLEngine on SSLProtocol -ALL +SSLv3 +TLSv1 SSLCipherSuite ALL:!ADH:RC4+RSA:+HIGH:+MEDIUM:-LOW:-SSLv2:-EXP SSLVerifyClient none SSLCertificateFile /path/to/allthingsinsurance.net.crt SSLCertificateKeyFile /path/to/privateKey.key SSLCertificateChainFile /path/to/gd_bundle-g2.cr % apachectl restart
Step 4: Go to any one of several machines and fail to verify using openssl.
% openssl s_client -connect allthingsinsurance.net:443 -showcerts -CApath /etc/ssl/certs ...lots of output, shows certs I installed... Verify return code: 19 (self signed certificate in certificate chain)
Step 5: Go to online SSL validation services and receive mixed reports:
- whynopadlock.com: self-signed error
- ssltest.net: self-signed error
- ssllabs.com: ok
- crossbrowsertesting.com: similar error
