SSLHandshakeException When Connecting to Let’s Encrypt CA SSL

Found this weird error when connecting to a HTTPS website, using apache commons httpclient. PKIX path building failed unable to find valid certification path to requested target

Very weird because i can connect to almost every other HTTPS website, but only one website causing this exception. After googling for a while, i found a very interesting solution from MKYong, that is to register the website’s certificate on my JVM.

Run this command to generate a new jssecacerts file,

c:\>java InstallCert localhost:443

The only difference is the location where i downloaded, i downloaded it from this link.

And i also removed the file’s package name, to make it easier to run.
