Quick Fix for Git SSL Certificates Problem
I get asked sometimes a number of times per day do I have a quick fix for the Git SSL Certificates Problem that shows up if you dont have the certificate installed on your workstation the right way.
Solution #1 – The super-easy but bad solution, but it works!!
Simply use the git global preferences to turn off SSL verification:
The downside is? Well what is the point in using https if you have turned off SSL verification… This solution is not recommended as it leaves you vulnerable to man-in-the-middle attacks, but it is a quick fix and it works. So if you are not going to a repo over the internet then this is a quick fixed that is fine.
