Yup, that's a self signed cert alright. Issued in 9/2017 and expires in 9/2018. That's pretty typical of self signed certs. Usually when a site has HTTPS capability it generates the self signed cert to be able to get HTTPS up and running so at least the module will work. It is then intended that you'll replace it later.

What you'll need to do is replace the self signed cert with the cert signed by Let's Encrypt and possibly also restart Apache for it to take effect. Since you have the plugin in cPanel, you shouldn't have to worry about establishing a chain of trust for it.

Once that is done you should be able to manually browse to https://thegaminguniverse.org and have no certificate errors.

Cool, sounds like you're pretty much at the end game now. XD

Sounds like you may have some absolute path links in the theme there it references the whole URL complete with http:// instead of relative links.

~Edit

When you get HTTPS working correctly, don't forget to put in an HTTP 301 redirect so that when people try HTTP they get flipped over to HTTPS automatically, (I do this by hand at work, but I imagine it's a an option somewhere in cPanel). ;)

I don't know what the exact procedure will be for you, but the general procedure is as follows:

1. Generate an RSA keypair (2048-bit if it asks)
2. Generate a CSR (certificate signing request)
3. Submit the CSR to the CA (certificate authority)
4. Go through verification (email or DNS is most common)
5. Download the generated certificate from the CA
6. Install the certificate on the web server

It's generally straight forward.

Here's a quick video of the steps in cPanel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c0IyUF9pM8k

They aren't using letsencrypt.org but the steps will be very similar. There's other quick videos/tutorials on how to it as well. cPanel will usually generate a new key pair for you when you do a CSR so step one will likely be combined with step 2 for you.

For verification, usually the CA will do either email or DNS. Email will send the verification email to webmaster@domain.com or what ever admin email you have and all you need to do is click the link to verify you're the admin of the domain.

If they do DNS, they will require you add a DNS record with the name they give you. EX: a TXT record blablabla.thegaminguniverse.org with data like 'blablala8128da;"

After you add the DNS record, they do an nslookup for it and if they find it, they confirm you're the admin of the domain since only the domain admin can add DNS records. This DNS record can be safely deleted after you're done getting the certificate. It's a one time use thing.


I also recommend going through letsencrypt.org's website and looking up their documentation. There is also plugin for it available for cPanel: https://www.hostinger.com/tutorials/ssl/installing-ssl-letsencrypt

I'd look at getting the plugin first. It'll make it a lot easier since they automate everything for you. Otherwise, you'll need to go through the manual steps.

That reminded me of the movie Unstoppable. :rolleyes:


Getting back on topic: Ps5 and PS5 work :P

As does anything going on in the industry. I'd also suggest avoiding opinion pieces as much as possible and leave that to the forums.


You may also at some point want to consider switching the site over to HTTPS instead of HTTP. You can use letsencrypt.org to get the SSL cert to import on the site for free. The reason why I mention HTTPS is even putting security aside by encrypting the website, HTTPS gives a website more 'validity' to people hitting it for the first time. Also letsencrypt.org is a certificate authority recognized by the key store used by many of the common browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Edge, etc.) so you shouldn't have to worry about SSL certificate warnings with it.

The Borderlands games never appealed to me to get one, but I know this is going to make a lot of people happy. It looks like 2018 is shaping up to being a big year for new games coming out.
