    Hi,

    All of the sudden I get that error for my SSL certificate. Did something get updated that might have caused that?

    My certificate is for www.domain.com but doesn't the alias cover that?

    <VirtualHost 66.66.466.66:80>
    ServerName domain.com
    ServerAlias www.domain.com

    It worked for like 5 months as is, but the last two days I get errors?

    Cheers,
    TR

    Your certificate is for www.domain.com, are you visiting www.domain.com or domain.com? SSL certificates are very particular about such things. ServerAlias only means that the content of domain.com will be displayed when you go to www.domain.com. It does not affect any matching performed between the domain you are visiting vs. the domain or subdomain on the SSL certificate.

    Yeah, I have a ticked open now too because I cannot sort this out. I am definitely visiting https://www.domain.com and this worked for months just fine, just started a few days ago. Trustwave says something must have changed during cpanel update, but I am officially lost now.
