Summary: Firefox 3 certificate error when accessing project web site
Project: GForge Admin

This project has not yet categorized itself in the Trove Software Map

Content:

If you are running Firefox 3 and try to access the web site of your project at the url https://<projectname>.gforge.uni.lu, you'll more than probably encounter the following error:
--------------------8<-----------------------
Secure Connection Failed

projectname.gforge.uni.lu uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate is not valid for any server names.

(Error code: ssl_error_bad_cert_domain)
--------------------8<-----------------------
This is the case for instance when you try to access the site helpdesk.gforge.uni.lu.

This is a "normal" behaviour as the SSL certificate is for gforge.uni.lu and not for *.gforge.uni.lu... To get ride of this message:
1/ click on the link "Or you can add an exception..." at the bottom of this page
2/ select the button "Add Exception"
3/ click on "Get certificate"
4/ finally, select "confirm security exception"

May be in the future we will desactivate SSL for projects web site. For now, please do as mentionned before.

Sorry for the convenience
