    SSL Help - "certificate signer not found"

    I'm having trouble getting SSL to work correctly. In WHM, I generated a certificate and signing request. I went to RackShack and got the GeoTrust Certificate by entering my CSR... everything seems to have gone well because I recieved my certificate back from them, entered it into WHM, and can now use https:// on the domain I chose.

    My problem is that in Opera (not IE or NS), I get this message when I access my secure URL:

    [quote:28889211fe]&The server's certificate chain is incomplete and the signer(s) are not registered... &[/quote:28889211fe]

    I tried some other https:// sites with Opera to see if it was just a wacky Opera thing but I didn't get this message on other servers. I'm not sure why only Opera seems to do it -- maybe my settings in IE/NS suppress it -- but I'd like to solve the problem.

    Has anybody gotten this message and managed to find out the problem and take care of it? I'd appreciate some help.

    Here's a URL to test if you'd like: https://server1.dreamdolphin.com/~dde/

    Thank you for any help.

    It is due to Opera, about 95% of browsers trust &Equifax secure Certificate authority& (CA) but not all of them

    Just Thawte, Verisign and Globalsign and a few others are 100% supported by browsers this problem exists for other CAs
