Fixing SSL3_GET_SERVER_CERTIFICATE Error: Certificate Verify
If you've encountered the SSL3_GET_SERVER_CERTIFICATE error with the message "certificate verify failed," don't worry – there's a fix, Our guide will help you.
This error message typically appears when a secure connection (HTTPS) is being established between a client (e.g. a web browser) and a server, and the server's SSL/TLS certificate cannot be verified.
SSL3_GET_SERVER_CERTIFICATE is a step in the SSL/TLS handshake process where the client requests the server's certificate and verifies it. If the certificate cannot be verified, the handshake fails and the error message "certificate verify failed" is displayed.
There are several reasons why this error might occur, including:
- The server's SSL/TLS certificate has expired or has been revoked.
- The client's system clock is set incorrectly, causing the certificate to appear as expired.
- The certificate was not issued by a trusted Certificate Authority (CA).
- The certificate chain is incomplete or corrupted.
- The server is using an outdated or insecure version of SSL/TLS protocol.
To fix this error, you can try the following steps:
- Ensure that the server's SSL/TLS certificate is valid and has not expired or been revoked.
- Check that the client's system clock is set correctly.
- Make sure that the certificate was issued by a trusted Certificate Authority (CA) and that the CA's root certificate is installed on the client's system.
- Verify that the certificate chain is complete and uncorrupted.
- Make sure that the server is using a secure and up-to-date version of SSL/TLS protocol.
If none of these steps resolve the issue, you may need to contact the server administrator or the organization that issued the SSL/TLS certificate
