View Full Version : Hammock Forums SSL has expired

02-16-2014, 22:38
The SSL certificate has expired and we are renewing it now. I did renew the certificate over a week ago but the tech team that installs the certificate seems to have forgotten about it. I have sent an emergency ticket in to get it renewed. This should be resolved with in 24 to 48 hours. I am very sorry for this.

That would explain the error earlier.

Things are behaving better already. But, it's scary when we can't get our HF fix! :eek:

Is this whole certificate thing is what's causing this?

What is an SSL certificate? I got the error on my computer too. Do all websites have or need these?

Short answer is that it is a way to get secure data exchanges for things like credit card data. It also authenticates the end to end connection. Probably not a big issue here most of the time but it is nice to have in case. They may also be using it for the donating member check. I don't know or care. ;-)

Longer answer look here:


If that is too simple for you then why did you ask? ;-))

Cool, thanks. I just started a blog and wondered if it was something that I needed but I found my answer!
