Hi, today I (with the help of the support team, of course) installed the ssl certificates. My django-based website works fine for all browsers, except for internet explorer 8.

Ie8 says that the certificate is registered with another site.

Have I done something wrong?

PS: I didn't try earlier versions of ie8. So it might be the same case for 6 or 7.

If you're having certificate problems in a single browser, then the problem is probably that the browser does not support Server Name Indication for SSL. Internet Explorer (any version) on Windows XP is the biggest browser with this problem.

If that's the case and you want to be able to support IE running on older versions of Windows, then you'll need to get a dedicated IP address for your HTTPS site. If you want to do that, then please open a support ticket to set it up.

Thanks. Yes it was on Windows XP when I tested it. I will need to discuss this with my colleagues. To be honest I do not meet a lot of people with Windows XP any more.
