[resolved] Upgrading WordPress & SSL with Nginx (4 posts)

    We're running WordPress with Nginx all on SSL.

    I just tried to upgrade to 3.5.2 and when I went to update sites I got:

    Warning! Problem updating https://teachersh.scis-his.net/hqtransitions5-6. Your server may not be able to connect to sites running on it. Error message: SSL certificate problem, verify that the CA cert is OK. Details: error:14090086:SSL routines:SSL3_GET_SERVER_CERTIFICATE:certificate verify failed

    It seems that something is wrong with my SSL cert even though Firefox, and Chome and IE seem ok with it.

    My config file contains:

    server {
            listen 443;
            ssl on;
            server_name shteachers.scis-his.net ;
            ssl_certificate /etc/ssl/combined.crt;
            ssl_certificate_key /etc/ssl/*.scis-his.net.key;

    What could be wrong? I know I could hack the update.php file, or write an mu plugin, but I'd rather not do something that goes around verifying the SSL cert.

    My Cert comes from Godaddy BTW.

    Your site https://shteachers.scis-his.net redirects to http://teachersh.scis-his.net that redirects to https://teachersh.scis-his.net which seems to be running on 3.5.2 as of this writing. So, it looks like you've fixed the issue. How did you fix it?

    I had to follow this and combine the certificate authority with the site certificate.

    Okay, thanks for sharing what worked.
