error with wget: use `--no-check-certificate` for licenses/updatesLast Modified: May 4, 2008, 10:17 am
If you get the following:

server# ./ 1234 5678
          => `/usr/local/directadmin/conf/license.key'
Connecting to||:443... connected.
ERROR: Certificate verification error for unable to get local issuer certificate
To connect to insecurely, use `--no-check-certificate'.
Unable to establish SSL connection.
Error downloading the license file

You'll need to recompile a new wget binary for your system:

Note that the tar.gz package in the above link has been modified from the original; the certificate checks have been removed to prevent the error.

On debian, one can just install ca-certificates to provide the "local issuer certificates" that wget is looking for:

apt-get install ca-certificates
