SSL Migration

Post by landymad » Sat Feb 25, 2017 11:51 am

In an effort to both secure the forum and speed up page loads we have made some changes behind the scenes.

You should all start to see the padlock in the address bar in your browser appear over the coming days as we are now secured via an SSL certificate.

You may in the next couple of days receive a page warning about the site certificate/security, this is nothing to worry about and you can accept the warning and continue to the site.

Hiya Rob! :D

I wondered why I couldn't access the site earlier, and still can't on Google Chrome, as it is saying

This site can’t provide a secure connection

forum.militarylightweight.co.uk uses an unsupported protocol.
ERR_SSL_VERSION_OR_CIPHER_MISMATCH

The client and server don't support a common SSL protocol version or cipher suite. This is likely to be caused when the server needs RC4, which is no longer considered secure.


I thought my world had just ended and my life flashed before my eyes. But, I've just downloaded Firefox and luckily I can access the site again on my steam driven old Windows XP laptop. :D

My laptop is around ten years old, a Toshiba Satellite Pro A200, running Windows XP Professional, so only just a step up from Collosus and could explain my problems. I could really do with getting a new one, if they weren't so expensive. Luckily downloading Firefox has allowed me to access the forum.

Thanks Neil I had the same laptop I'm sure!!! Great bit of kit. The age of the device shouldn't matter. Try downloading the latest version of chrome as that is supported and secure to. I'd always recommend keeping your browser up to date. Also the migration takes at a minimum 24 hours so it could be a result of that.

Keep me posted my good man.
Rob.

I was going to leave it until tomorrow evening to see if it came back on Chrome before I did a re-install, as it isn't supported with updates on older browsers I just tried Firefox to see if it would work. At least I can post pics if Chrome fails to play the game.

I'll let you know how it goes mate.

I feel your pain Neil.

I've got a Dell Inspiring 1525 running Visa and Chrome is warning me that it's now unsupported. Just waiting on the problems starting.

Why the hell did I not upgrade to W10 when the going was good?
Cheers,

I'm having problems accessing the site on IE having to go into the club page first then into the forum. It also kept asking for my login each time I was making a post even though I was already logged in - really annoying as it dumped my posts a couple of times.

In chrome this morning it seems ok and I was able to go straight in from forum link.

Morning Bob are you using a saved link to get to the forum? Although we convert this to a new link all old links are obsolete so it would be worth while saving a new favourite link.

If you could clear you browser history in I.E and restart you browser it should work fine.
