SSL Error


Well-known member
Bought a forum and transferred it to my server. Uploaded the database and done everything I've done before. I've transferred several xenforo's before with no issue. This one has an issue. It throws out the following error:

SSL connection error

Unable to make a secure connection to the server. This may be a problem with the server, or it may be requiring a client authentication certificate that you don't have.

Error 107 (net::ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR): SSL protocol error.

I don't know what SSL is much less how to get rid of this error and fix it. Any help??

Try to access the DB of the new sql and search for the https string. My guess is that the url of the old forum was using https and set it in their ACP.

The guy who sold it said it was in the .htaccess so I edited out his rewrite code. Now the SSL error goes away to be replaced with...

An unexpected database error occurred. Please try again later.

Getting quite stressed. Not going how the others have in the past and I don't understand it.

The .htaccess wouldn't be related to the database error. View the pages source to get the actual mysql error.

I suspect you need to edit the config.php to point to your database.
