Not able to connect to digitalocean spaces via s3

We use an s3 client called s3express and it’s been going well until yesterday around 8PM eastern. Now we’re not able to connect to our bucket/spaces through the client, and we keep getting this as an error “: com_err:60 - SSL certificate problem: unable to get local issuer certificate”. Does anybody have any ideas on what might be going on? Thanks ahead of time!

Hello @prasannathuraisingam

Hello @prasannathuraisingam

Have you recently updated s3express ? You can check the SSL settings like disablecertvalidation as some settings might have changed and now causing this error for you. Also, check if any recent changes have been made to your local system.

Hope that this helps!
