Unable to Verify HTTPS Certificate (Unknown Authority)

Unable to Verify HTTPS Certificate (Unknown Authority)

I facing same problem since few day after creating certificate for Secure HTTPS sites. then whenever I am browsing sites with https it was showing me error like “Website Certified by Unknown Authority – unable to verify the identity of indiangnu.org site”

I was thinking that this might be problem with browser incompatibility issue and my borwser is not supporting HTTPS. But I was wrong and finally I found that there is some simple miss configuration on server side.

* Virtual Hosting of My Site –

ServerAdmin webmaster@indiangnu.org
ServerName www.indiangnu.org
DocumentRoot /home/indgnu/public_html

User indgnu
Group indgnu
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /home/indgnu/public_html/cgi-bin/

SSLCertificateFile /usr/share/ssl/certs/indiangnu.org.crt
SSLCertificateKeyFile /usr/share/ssl/private/indiangnu.org.key
SSLCACertificateFile /usr/share/ssl/certs/intermediate.crt

SSLLogFile /var/log/apache/domlogs/indiangnu.org-ssl_data_log


If you are using Certificate authorize by CA then you need to add this line and intermediate.crt Certificate of your CA.

SSLCACertificateFile /usr/share/ssl/certs/intermediate.crt

If you are using Self signed Certificate then you may not face this problem..

* The options might depends upon the version of Apache.
