I have a SSL certificate installed on a CENTOS server via plesk control panel.

the problem is that although the certificate appears to work fine it throws up a warning message to new users asking them to add an exception. Some of these warnings look quite scary to any potential customer.

So why is this? the certificate is issued via godaddy and is for my own domain name.

When I look at the certificate details it actually appears to be issued by Plesk (as in a self signed cert).

Any ideas what I can do to remove this message for my customers?

Are you using the latest Plesk Control Panel, Stable release 9.3.0 / December 2009? Also, OpenSSL 1.0 has just been released - are you using that?

I would first look into your configuration files to see if there is one for SSL certificate authorization, and perhaps there is a configuration value that could be reset to attenuate the warning.

Note: GoDaddy and Verisign are fairly reliable. What is not reliable is that SSL certificates can be spoofed with man-in-the-middle attacks (in the security blogs lately).

You can always ask GoDaddy for support in the matter. They should know what to do.

I am using plesk 9.0.1 as this is the version provided by my host.

I actually followed the instructions provided by GoDaddy for plesk and everything seemed fine with one exception - although the process requires that you enter owner details none of these appear when i click view certificate via the browser -the only information that shows up is that the ssl certificate was apparently issued by plesk!

as for open SSL - I really have no idea how this works.
