I have a GoDaddy SSL certificate and certain other server side scripts are hitting the endpoints.

We're stumbling unto the problems fixed by this https://github.com/coolaj86/node-ssl-root-cas, where the GoDaddy root certificate is not installed by default.

What certificate should I get so users won't run into this problem? The goal is not have them install ca-certificates or weird hacks.

You need to install the appropriate intermediate certificate, chaining your certificate back to a root certificate that's installed in the user's browser. You should go to this page, download the certificate bundle that's appropriate for your certificate, and then install the bundle in your web server -- how you do that depends on what web server it is, which you haven't specified.

  • That's already been done. It's working properly everywhere except server side callbacks. – MB. May 28 '14 at 23:15
  • Again, there are github node projects for working around this issue. I just want to know what certificate to buy at an affordable price because apparently cheap-o ones don't work so debs don't have to make ugly hacks. – MB. May 29 '14 at 18:02
