[GeoNode-devel] SSL error on upload and saving metadata

Hi devs

I'm putting our Geonode 2.4 behind SSL to protect the passwords over the net.

Based on the doco<http://docs.geonode.org/en/master/tutorials/advanced/geonode_production/ssl.html> I've written two ansible scripts, one<https://github.com/UNSW-CFRC/geonode_install/blob/master/install_geonode/10_generate_ssl_csr.yml> to generate the key and CSR, the other<https://github.com/UNSW-CFRC/geonode_install/blob/master/install_ssl_cert.yml> to install the certificate supplied by our university IT. I included the step to add the certificate to httplib2/cacerts.txt for python.

This works OK in general - the site itself shows as secure in Chrome.

However, I get errors when uploading a layer and saving metadata:
SSLHandshakeError at /layers/geonode:test_issue086a/metadata
[SSL: CERTIFICATE_VERIFY_FAILED] certificate verify failed (_ssl.c:590)

Any thoughts?

This is similar but not identical to the issue reported last year by Antoine Rolland (below).

Hello everyone,

I'm using Geonode 2.4 stable version, and it's now running under SSL. After this change, part of the website is still working well, but I meet errors while editing metada (when I save), and also when I try to upload a new layer. This is the error I meet :

SSLHandshakeError at /layers/geonode:communes/metadata
[Errno 1] _ssl.c:510: error:140770FC:SSL routines:SSL23_GET_SERVER_HELLO:unknown protocol
Request Method: POST
Request URL: https://aware.cirad.fr/layers/geonode:communes/metadata
Django Version: 1.6.11
Exception Type: SSLHandshakeError
Exception Value:
[Errno 1] _ssl.c:510: error:140770FC:SSL routines:SSL23_GET_SERVER_HELLO:unknown protocol
Exception Location: /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/httplib2/__init__.py in connect, line 1043
Python Executable: /usr/bin/python
Python Version: 2.7.6
Python Path:
Server time: lun, 6 Jui 2016 09:09:43 -0400

Also, it seems that the url of the website generated is wrong : a "/" is missing between "websitename" and "uploaded/thumbs" (for instance). I suppose it is a consequence of the error i meet.

Any help would be really appreciated
