The server now supports HTTPS. For now you can continue to access over plain HTTP.

BOINC clients connected via HTTP should not receive any warning about an incorrect project URL. Equally, reconnecting a client using the HTTPS URL should work correctly, and all requests will be transfered securely.

All website pages should display without any security warnings[1]. Please let me know if you find a page that misbehaves or redirects back to an HTTP URL.

Good news !
Thanks for the heads-up Matt.
Nothing to report at this time on my side (just one thing - the home page of the teams is OK but in HTTPS not secure)
All pages of the GPUG website seem to work.
HTTPS performed on my BOINC Manager (7.4.36) - Everything is OK for now :)

I don't know if this has anything to do with the HTTPS change, but now I am unable to download CPU and AMD GPU tasks. I detached and reattached to the https link and am still getting the following error messages.

What client version do you have? Are you still able to get normal acemdlong WUs?

The box that gets the error is Windows 7 and BOINC 7.4.27. It has an AMD 6950 GPU card.

My other box is Ubuntu 15.04 and BOINC 7.2.42 with two NVIDIA GPU's in it. It was able to download an acemdlong unit just fine.

Let me know if you want me to try something different.

Experiencing these error messages with 7.3.11 BOINC for AMDTEST CPU only. Download keeps backing off repeating the same error lines for multiple work units. Transfer is reporting a 2.23MB download for the 1.12MB file size- stalling at 99.12%/2.23MB/1.12MB

Download of CPU & AMD GPU tasks seems to be working okay for me this morning. Just downloaded 16 CPU & AMD GPU tasks. One is running now.

I am having to access the web pages over IE (using CLRs) since Firefox is complaining about the https certificate being revoked in the Online Certificate Status Protocol.

Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to www.gpugrid.net. The OCSP server has no status for the certificate. (Error code: sec_error_ocsp_unknown_cert)

The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

I get the same error using Firefox but Chrome works just fine, and at exactly the same time, so it's not a website down problem.

OCSP is updated very often. I was only reporting it so that the certificate owners (GPUGrid.net) can do it diligence to make sure the OCSP stays current to the cert here.

BTW, the only options given by Firefox at that error are "Retry" and "Cancel". There is no link given to an error of an OCSP cert missing in the index.

Oups ! You are right ! Sorry...
this link https://support.mozilla.org/fr/questions/967950 is given when you type "firefox sec_error_ocsp_unknown_cert" in Google's search bar ;-)
