Invalid Security Certificate

Great to see that Mindboards is back, but the site has an invalid security certificate. Is this likely to be fixed in the near future?

I've noticed a lot of problems :/ it was just completely down the other day.

Are you coming from mindboards.net / forums.mindboards.net, or are you going directly to mindboards.trella.biz? Also, are you using https or http?

Have tried both from mindboards.net and typing the URL directly. Trying to use HTTP automatically redirects to HTTPS.

I simply added it to "trusted websites" ;)

Sure, me too. But if these forums are to be revived and thrive we need old members returning and welcome new ones. Getting a security warning won't be encouraging for them. Besides that, it should be standard practice to maintain a valid security certificate.

yes, I agree - write a PM to Sebastian Trella!
(Anyway, better to have this one now finally instead of completely nothing as until some weeks before ;)

Security certificates often cost money. Who wants to cough up the money for the SSL cert? :)

There wouldn't have to be a cert if this site was accessible from HTTP. Who hosts this site anyways?

I am hosting ist atm. Http ist not a good option as we are transfering passwords and usernames through the internet here. So, https is highly recommended. I have changed the certificate, now you should not get any warnings. right?

I didn't receive any warnings this time, so I guess it worked
