Question

ERR_SSL_UNRECOGNIZED_NAME_ALERT with DO space.

I use cloudflare for my DNS. On cloudflare I have a cname from mysub.domain.com to https://myfiles.nyc3.cdn.digitaloceanspaces.com

I am trying to import my own certificate for a custom subdomain on the myfiles space.

I have the wildcard.domain.com .crt file I have the .key file. I also have the ca-bundle.crt

I put the .crt file in the cert text box. I put the .key file in the key text box. I’ve tried putting the ca-bundle.crt in the chain text box, and I have tried NOT putting it in. I specify the mysub.subdomain.com as the sub domain. (This option only shows if I put ONLY the .crt file in the cert text box.)

The cert gets added, but whenever I got to mysub.domain.com

I get ERR_SSL_UNRECOGNIZED_NAME_ALERT. Why is the cert not being found? Does it take time for the cert to propagate? Am I putting the cert info in the wrong boxes/order?

ASAP help would be appreciated.

Hello @mrberzerk

DNS changes might take up to 24 hours in order to update and fully resolve. This happens mainly due to DNS cache and general DNS propagation time.

You can use our DNS lookup tool and check if the CNAME is resolving.
