It seems obvious you’ve come across the following error while trying to setup SSL certificates on apache. Error code: ‘ssl_error_rx_record_too_long’ (Firefox) or ‘Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage’ (IE) Well more often than not, you have something mis-configured! (Likely the listening port: 443). What you might want to do is check that your firewall […]
The easiest solution is to download a combined bundle file from your SSL.com My Account portal. Once you login to your account you should click on the Orders tab.
The mostly likely scenario is that the website is not SSL-enabled, or the SSL is not functioning properly on the website. There is nothing you can do on the client end other than notify the site’s administrator that there may be a problem with the site’s SSL.
HOWTO: Why do I receive a pop-up box stating that some pages are secured when others are not, even though all of the pages reside underneath the domain using the SSL certificate. All of the pages are using relative links.
Be sure that all hyperlinks (ie <a href=””> and <img src=””>) are using relative links or absolute links with “https:” set as the protocol. You must be referencing some absolute links with “http:” as the protocol instead of “https:”. You can search your code for http: and find the content that is not linked […]
Any time that a web page asks you for sensitive information, you want to be able to identify if the page is secure or not. The ability to recognize a secure web connection is extremely important.
SSL (Secure Socket Layer) is the industry standard protocol for establishing secure communication on the internet. Virtually all information securely transmitted via the Internet relies on some version of the SSL (aka SSL/TLS) protocol.
For maximum compatibility between SSL points, port 443 is the standard, thus recommended, port used for secured SSL communications. However, any port can be used.
FAQ: After I purchase and install the SSL certificate do I need to put my files (jsp, html, asp, images, etc.) in a special directory to force the users to go through the “https” of my site?
It depends on how your server software is set up. Most server software packages SSL enable an entire site as opposed to a specific directory. As a result, you usually do not have to place your web files in a special directory.
TLS (Transport Layer Security) version 1.2 was first defined in RFC 5246 by the IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force) in August 2008. The specification obsoleted TLS 1.1 as defined in RFC 4346 and is the current SSL/TLS specification.
TLS (Transport Layer Security) version 1.0 was first defined in RFC 2246 by the IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force) in April 2006. The specification obsoleted SSL 3.0 as defined in historical RFC 6101 and was obsoleted itself not long after by TLS 1.1 which was defined in RFC 4346 in April of 2006.
