Certificate Error in Internet Explorer 7

Hi All,

I am using an internal web application which got migrated to https from http. When i try to access the site, am getting a warning from the browser saying that "There is a problem with the website's security certificate". When i click on the link "Continue to this website(not recommended)", i am redirected to the website with a pink address bar with a "Certificate Error" alert tab.

After spending hours of searching in the internet, I have tried many ways like

1. Checking the system date and time
2. Importing the Certificate to the "Trusted Root Certificate Authorities" Path
3. Installing the certificate manually. Still the error persists.

Am I the only one facing this issue? Please reply.Thanks in advance.

You might want to verify the issued to (CN) and the domain of the URL in your address bar do match.

For example, cert issued for www.unitedportals.appspot.com would pose the same security alert if this was used by the test.unitedportals.appspot.com; same alert is posed for: if issued to = www.unitedportals.appspot.com and URL visible in your address bar is http://unitedportals.appspot.com

Hope this lifts up a little mist!

Ours is a web application i.e. our server is running somewhere and we are connecting to the same through browser (IE or Mozila). Our application works fine in Http and Https.

But after integrating Java help 2.0, it works fine in http, but for https it displays the following exception and the application frame does not open.

The exception is:
500 Could not parse Got an IOException (sun.security.validator.ValidatorException: PKIX path building failed: sun.security.provider.certpath.SunCertPathBuilderException: unable to find valid certification path to requested

In the Google, there are some links which claims that have found solution to it by importing the certificate on the client side.

But my problem is that it is not a soap application or a normal application in which have control; here my browser is connecting to the server.

The server might have the certificate and the browser has imported the certificate, that's why it is not giving me the certificate error but after importing the same, the help is not working and it is giving me the above error.

Either I am not getting what they are suggesting or they are referring to some other problem that is different from mine.

But the problem is that I am not getting anywhere on this? I am new to jsp or web application but I have extensive exp. in java application dev.

I have already spent 3 days on it; please help.
