wget complains about certificates

Posted on: January 31, 2013

ERROR: The certificate of `certain_url’ is not trusted.
ERROR: The certificate of `certain_url’ hasn’t got a known issuer.

First of all, I am accessing an URL of http but wget is still complaining about their certificate. Second of all, I do have a certificate from the other party and i thought i should be making wget aware of the certificate.

Turned out to be a wrong approach.

One test, paste the http link to browser, it complains about an unsafe certificate, but if you click Proceed anyway, the xml file shows up in browser fine.

So turns out wget has an option –no-check-certificate and everything is fine after using the option now 🙂
