    Re: whats going on again

    I had trouble with collatz and did some forum browsing.
    A hand full of projects use a security certificate that has recently expired.
    The latinsquares forum also talks about the certificate issue.

    Options are finding an updated file called:

    ca-bundle.crt

    And replacing the one on your machine in the ProgramFiles/BOINC directory.

    The other option, which I used, was to edit the ca-bundle.crt file, removing the offending certificate code.
    This worked for me.

    The code is a block in the ca-bundle.crt file labeled: "DST Root CA X3"
    I deleted that line and all text below it that was between and including the "-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----"
    and "-----END CERTIFICATE-----" lines.

    I then stopped and restarted BOINC Manager.

    (I also made a copy of the file before I edited it in case I messed things up and needed to put it back.

    Supposedly, the next release of BOINC manager will install an updated ca-bundle.crt file with newer certificates.

    My understanding is the newest version of BM, 7.16.20, takes care of this problem.
