Description of problem:
3rd party tools (eg. flash) look in /etc/ssl/certs for Certificate Authorities
SUSE, Debian, and upstream all use this path
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install wordpress (wordpress.noarch) on a test machine
2. Get a cert from cacert.org (I believe flash does not recognize this authority by default)
3. Set up HTTPS on the test machine using the cert
4. Append http://www.cacert.org/certs/root.txt to /etc/pki/tls/certs/ca-bundle.crt on a machine with your testing web browser
5. Try to upload an image over HTTPS to the wordpress install
file is uploaded
ln -sf /etc/pki/tls/certs /etc/ssl/certs
solves the problem
ca-certificates should make this symlink.
Are these tools looking specifically for
or are they searching all .crt files within that directory, or what?
It appears they are simply looking for /etc/ssl/certs/ca-bundle.crt
Renaming ca-bundle.crt to ca.crt causes the ssl connection to fail.
Thanks for checking that, Ben.
I've added the symlink as you suggested.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 14 development cycle.
Changing version to '14'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
This message is a notice that Fedora 14 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 14. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '14' have been closed as WONTFIX.
(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 14 reached end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that
version of Fedora.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Benjamin, in case you're still around, I've been looking into this somewhat lately and changes may be coming: see https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1053882 . If you have any thoughts there (particularly on how this ever actually *worked* in the first place, when nothing before this change was made ever actually had a /etc/ssl/certs/ca-bundle.crt file so far as I can ascertain - Debian has /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt), it'd be helpful. thanks!
