From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1)

Description of problem:
the intermediate Verisign certificate has expired (was valid 4/16/97

myself (which I did already) or RedHat should put out a new package

Comment 3 Joe Orton 2005-09-12 10:20:39 EDT

/etc/httpd/conf/ssl.crt/ca-bundle.crt nor anywhere else in the mod_ssl package
that I'm aware of.
