I am having an issue with my server certificate, I installed CA service so that I can make and issue my server certificate. I followed the instructions as per Microsoft’s website and all seems well from the server at least
Now when I have another box (not the server) connects to my web site: example: http://whatever.domain.com/. They get a “Security Alert” no problem there I guess.
It has a message that says:
“The server certificate was issues by a company you have not chosen to trust. View the certificate to determine whether you want to trust the certifying authority.”
Then at the end when it asks me if I want to proceed I have the options of ‘yes’, ‘no’, ‘view certificate’
When viewing the certificate in the General Tab it reads:
This certificate cannot be verified up to a trusted certification authority.
In the Certification Path is says all is OK.
I don’t know why this is happening because my server that also has the web server on it is the “certification authority”.
Also even when I install the certificate and revisit the site I get that pop up prompt
So… to make a long story short, I need some help (hand holding ... walk through type of help).
I need to get this working in less than 8 hrs.
