Hi all,

I've been trying to figure out a problem I've got with SSL. I have installed a certificate with the common name "*.dev.com" and it works for https://www.myserver.dev.com and https://myserver.dev.com.

Common Name (e.g. server FQDN or YOUR name) []:*.dev.com

The problem is when I try to post to https://www.myserver...dir/script.php.

If a point the browser to this URL I get served the page but if I post within an iframe I get this:

SSL certificate problem, verify that the CA cert is OK. Details:
error:14090086:SSL routines:SSL3_GET_SERVER_CERTIFICATE:certificate verify failed

I've tried posting to:




Each time I get this error message. I can't see why, as far as I can tell this should work.

Anyone got any ideas?

*.dev.com does not validate www.myserver.dev.com: the asterisk is only good for one component.

Fair enough, is there a way around this?

I've tried creating another certificate using the common name "www.myserver.dev.com" and got this:

[error] Init: Multiple RSA server certificates not allowed
