SSL certificate error


Firefox is showing error " The certificate is not trusted because no issuer chain was provided. (Error code: sec_error_unknown_issuer)" when I think i have everything correctly in place.

Virtualmin is showing
Current SSL certificate details
Web server hostname Issuer name Thawte DV SSL CA
Issuer organization Thawte, Inc. Expiry date Sep 10 23:59:59 2013 GMT
Certificate type Signed by CA

And I have config below
SSLEngine on
SSLCertificateFile /home/client/ssl.cert
SSLCertificateKeyFile /home/client/ssl.key

Am I missing anything? I’m not sure if it’s related to new version of Firefox or not because I dont think I was getting the error before, but Chrome is showing so information too.


It sounds like you may need a “CA Certificate”… you can configure that in Server Configuration -> Manage SSL Certificate -> CA Certificate.

A CA Certificate is something your SSL provider likely sent, along with your actual SSL certificate.


Is it the same as intermediate certificate?
