    Dear Markwaugh,

    This is usually caused by the certificate having a Common Name of \"domain.com\" and if you are using \"www.domain.com\" you will get the error: The name on the security certificate is invalid or does not match the name of the site is generated. So please try to use the same domain name which you have created in the certificate.

    Regards,

    Is this a self-generated SSL certificate? Unless you "install" your CA as a trusted CA for your browser, you are always going to see this message for self-generated certificates.
