You should click proceed.

People complained about not having a certificate with the false-positives on the downloads. I can uninstall the cert if needed.

Erik whatever you did, all the images are now broken - including all the ribbons and emoticon/markdown stuff when writing a message. Idk what kind of cert your using but clearly its not helping, you'll need something else, but idk what that could be rn.

I see that. Working on reverting what I just did, but it is being stubborn.

If everything else fails, do you have the last resort of rollback? If yes, how far back is the most recent backup?

I think I've removed the cert. Much easier to install than to delete. :(

But everything should be working now.

You may have to spring for a verified SSL certificate - that is a significant cost for an operation like this, but it's becoming table-stakes for web sites, especially if you're downloading something.

I know. It's another $100/year on top of the already (fairly hefty) hosting costs. Plus another $25 install fee. The self-signed was nice because no fees :)

SSL certs are free. They can be generated via LetsEncrypt.

Not knowing anything about the hosting situation, I can not give advice on installation.

I'm going to put in another recommendation for using LetsEncrypt. Every cert is free, and you configure your server to automatically renew them so that you never have an annual task to do manually.

Edit: Oh, but you might be saying that your web host charges extra to use SSL certs, and doesn't let you use LetsEncrypt? That would suck. Seems like there could be better alternatives.

If the web host charges for you to secure your own server, it seems like a company that does not actually want your business. There are many hosting services that will provide SSL for free.

It's not like the hardware is in my living room :)

The hosting company provides unlimited bandwidth and drive space, something this forum consumes a lot of (250ish gig for January already in bandwidth).

If I get the cert from the host, it costs. If I get it from a different source, it costs less. LetsEncrypt is not supported by the host.

I'm not sure it's the same issue, but Subj tags (like "new") seems to be broken now.
That's what I see after a try to open tag image placeholder in separate tab:

Code: [Select]
The requested URL was not found on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

I noticed that. Most likely because I buggered something up :)

  • I'm just a test account in a tester world.
Solution is to go to your profile and reselect English (or your language of choice). Dunno why doing a bulk change messes it up, bit frakk it all

Yep. What my test account said :)

Profile, Account Settings. Probably says default language is Albanian (really SMF?). Change that to English or Russian or German or Swahili. Your choice. Put your password in, and it is fixed once you hit save.
