SSL certificate weirdness

| No Comments

Recently we moved the WOU forums server to a better machine, but then we noticed that Internet Explorer was no longer accepting the server's SSL certificate, so it couldn't make a secure connection. Firefox, on the other hand, was perfectly fine with the cert and established a perfectly valid SSL connection.

Those of you who are all up on modern web security practices probably recognize this problem already, but I didn't have the relevant information and was completely boggled.

I'm always fascinated to learn how things work, especially stuff we completely take for granted, like for instance how electricity gets from a power plant to your house. So in the hopes that there are others like me out there, I'm going to describe the inner workings of something most of us take for granted: the World-Wide Web.
