Hello,

I found this Morning a Message in my Logs, that is new for me and I never seen this before?

Is this a Error in the Certificate System??

The certificate for www.example.at has expired Datum: 08.07.17 06:31
Von: root
An: gjn+www@example.at
################# SSL Certificate Warning ################

Certificate for hostname ‘www.example.at’, in file (or by nickname):
/etc/pki/tls/certs/localhost.crt

The certificate needs to be renewed; this can be done
using the ‘genkey’ program.

Browsers will not be able to correctly connect to this
web site using SSL until the certificate is renewed.

what is the best way to correct this Problem?

  • No, it means that the SSL certificate has expired – they only have a limited validity and these default certificates are generated at install time with a 365 day life.

    Create a new certificate.

    If you don’t use https (which is probably likely if you didn’t know about certificate lifetimes), then you can ignore the warning (although it will never stop telling you about it). The warning is issued by
    /etc/cron.daily/certwatch and you can put ‘NOCERTWATCH=yes’ in
    /etc/sysconfig/httpd to disable the warnings.

    P.

  • It means, as it says, that the certificate for the site has expired. I’m guessing you purchased a cert, or maybe used LetsEncrypt, which expires ever 3 months. You will have to renew the certificate.
