Getting this when going to anything in the members area, or private messaging (on Firefox). Has all been fine in the past.

It's probably just that ukvac uses an old sha1 certificate. Just upgrade to sha256, it should be free.

wow, that is an old SHA-1 certificate - issued in 2012 - latest versions of Chrome and Firefox both flag any site using SHA-1 certificates as insecure so exactly as slowcade thought.

Anyone here who has a site and has this problem, you can also get free certificates from https://letsencrypt.org/ - valid for 3 months and you can just keep renewing them

There's also a domain issue: I'm logged in to www.ukvac.com, but I'm lazy. I type in ukvac.com... links on the front page, the recent posts, they direct to the relative address ukvac.com, which I'm not logged into... this is a pain the arse. You've basically got two identical websites competing with each other.

You should decide whether the address is www.ukvac.com or ukvac.com and put in a redirect rule. Thumbs Up

It's disabled - it isn't needed anymore to access the site. We may renew it later.

Alpha1: I don't think that the certificate is disabled, because the site still responds to https. And I still get certificate errors in my browser, with details about the certificate. If it were disabled that wouldn't happen.

It's disabled for enforcement on the forum. If anyone has links to the https urls then yes it does still respond.

I can disable that also if you want - just means it won't work at all, or I can do an https>http redirect.

Ok, I understand. I suspect that my browser uses https automatically if available.
It doesn't bother me much, though.
