Godaddy and SSL "The issuer of this certificate could not be found"

Dear Community,

Although I believe I’ve done all the correct steps my site give and SSL error: “The issuer of this certificate could not be found.”

The site is hosted on Godaddy (, and the error persists with or without the Cloudflare Wordpress plugin.

What am I doing wrong?

Hi @jacques.kruger,

The site looks OK to me, apart from mixed content.

Mixed content errors mean that your website is being loaded over HTTPS but some of the resources are being loaded over HTTP. To fix this you will need to edit your source code and change all resources to load over a relative path, or directly over HTTPS.

For example, if you load your images with a full URL:

<img src="" />

You would want to change this to:

<img src="//" />

By removing the http:, the browser will use whichever protocol the visitor is already using. An alternative option would be to enable the Automatic HTTPS Rewrites feature that can potentially fix these errors for you automatically. Do be aware that resources loaded by JavaScript or CSS will not be automatically rewritten and mixed content warnings will still appear.
