Description Bin Chen 2008-02-16 23:31:17 PST
From http://curl.haxx.se/docs/sslcerts.html, the CA can be disabled in curl, and in default the firefox can access the https site without the ca-certification packages in ubuntu, so to useability, i think in default the gtk webkit should disable the CA in curl so that users won't feel curios why they can't browser the https web.

Yeah, I've seen people blog about WebKit not supporting SSL and it was quite a mystery. It turned out they were missing the certificate package.

Do you know how we can work around this issue in the CURL http backend?

I will fix up the ChangeLog entry, replace 'FALSE' with 'false' and add a FIXME before landing.

Landed in r30355.
Comment 5 Alp Toker 2008-02-17 15:55:10 PST
This was modified in r30359. You'll need to define the WEBKIT_IGNORE_SSL_ERRORS environment variable to enable this mode.
