Hi all! I posted a new podcast episode to my site yesterday, but it never showed up on Apple Podcasts since Apple Podcasts Connect couldn’t seem to update itself from my podcast feed. I used Blubrry’s Cast Feed Validator site to check my feed and got the following error:
“Could not find root certificate authority because it is not in Apple Podcasts’ list of trusted authorities.”
Sure enough, when I paused Cloudflare for the site, everything started working… at least until my site went down due to the volume of direct traffic without the benefit of Cloudflare.
Everything was working when I posted my previous episode on May 7th, so the problem seems to be new since then. I’m using Full/Strict encryption in Cloudflare per my host’s recommendation if that’s relevant. If anyone has any suggestions I’d very much appreciate them - thanks!
