Ssl cert expired / Missing

Did MCB loose ssl/tls support? I thought I remembered seeing https, at least at one point.

We had it at one point, but I never really saw the need, but I see it's being forced upon us over the internet so your browser will warn you when you're on a non-ssl page just because you want to read something.

It's quite annoying that the browsers are doing this. It's not like it's actually been a problem.

I will have to get it back up and running again. We haven't had it in years though, so it's not like we lost it just recently. It's just that you're being notified about it now.

Just checked. It expired about 5 or 6 years ago, I had it when we ran the store for the patches and calendars, but since I no longer sell that stuff - give it away instead - I let the certificate die.

Acknowledged. I must have just been thinking we have been using https this whole time.

Thanks as always for what you do!

Just an FYI, I've gone through the tedious task of making the cert correct and secure for the site. I honestly don't get why it matters on a site that is just delivering information and not your bank account, but hey... what's spending a few more $$$

I swear that's the only reason why they're all making us do it.

The gallery isn't secured and it may never be (depends on how motivated I'll get) but the forums are now secured.

Have you looked into Let's Encrypt's free certificates?

The big push for making all connections encrypted/secure came in 2013 after the Snowden revelations.

I did... It was something I was going to do, but coughing up the cash was easier for the time being. I'll revisit it again in two years when this cert expires and move over to the free one after a little server side messing around.
