Axis History Forum

Does anyone know what's going on over on Marcus Wendel's AHF website? For the past 8 or 9 days, every time I have attempted to access the website I have gotten this:

This connection is untrusted
You asked to connect securely to: forum.axishistory.com. But we can't confirm that the connection is secure due to a problem with the website's security certificate.

Such problems may indicate an attempt to steal your information.


Most appreciative of any help or suggestions!

L.

Re: Axis History Forum

They apparently forgot to renew SSL/TLS certificate of their website, so your browser warns you that the connection may not be secure. In this case, nothing to really worry about unless you use the same password for other sites etc. (which is not a good idea anyway).

Re: Axis History Forum

Maciej,

Thank you very much for your reply. This has happened before but never for this long. I am still unable to get on it through my ISP or through Internet Explorer.

I would be very interested in knowing if I am the only one having this problem or whether others are having it, too. AHF may be accessable through the far-left social media site Facebook, but I do no belong to it and never will.

Thanks,

L.

Larry

This issue can be dealt only by the person with access to the forum database and server, perhaps he/she is unable to resolve the problem for any reason (like holiday or illness).

You can still access the forum through your browser - when you get the statement about untrusted connection, there should be a 'details' tab at the bottom of it - click on it and it will open an option with clickable link to access the requested website (although it will be marked as 'not recommended').

Re: Axis History Forum

I'm getting the message that it's a non-secure website but I'm able to access it without any problems with Chrome.

Re: Axis History Forum

O.K. Maciej and Rudi - I will use your suggestions and give it a go and seen what happens. Marcus Wendel (Sweden) has been the owner, super moderator and webmaster of the website since its inception more than 20 years ago. That he managed to keep it going this long is most laudable, but maybe he has finally lost interest or decided to focus exclusively on his Facebook version. We'll see...………..

Thanks for your help!

L.

Re: Axis History Forum

M.G. and R.S. - thanks again..............it worked.

Once there, I noticed a sharp drop in activity on AHF beginning when that notice started to appear, so it seems others have been affected by it, too.
