Hi,

The HTTPS certificate has expired for the site so to login we are all having to send our usernames and password over the internet unencrypted. Not ideal.

Can you get the cert updated please?

Google will downgrade search results eventually too for all sites still on http. It's cheap as chips for a security certificate.

Thats something you might want to take up with the owner, not sure mods could do much about it.

Or free if you use this CA

FYI - I won't be logging on again until this is fixed as I don't really want to send a password in clear text over the public internet.

My understanding is the password hashing on phpBb is very good regardless of security certificate so you should be good. Do any platforms use clear text?
