Hi All,

I am running Ejabberd 21.07 on FreeBSD.

I am seeing a strange warning in my server logs, even after renewing my
certificate (CA is Letsencrypt)

2021-10-17 14:02:07.980333+11:00 [warning]
<0.295.0>@ejabberd_pkix:log_warnings/1:393 Invalid certificate in
/usr/local/etc/letsencrypt/live/mydomain.net-0001/fullchain.pem: at line

I am aware that Letsencrypt did recently have an expired intermediate (R3)

server uses the same pem and it scores an A+ on the qualys ssl tester with
no chain/trust issues.

When I look at the cert that Ejabberd is complaining about on line 65 using
openssl x509, it shows:

        Serial Number:
        Signature Algorithm: sha256WithRSAEncryption
        Issuer: O = Digital Signature Trust Co., CN = DST Root CA X3
            Not Before: Jan 20 19:14:03 2021 GMT
            Not After : Sep 30 18:14:03 2024 GMT
        Subject: C = US, O = Internet Security Research Group, CN = ISRG
Root X1

2024... It is certainly NOT expired, Is this an erroneous log message? A
client who connects using the Pidgin XMPP client is reporting they get an
invalid cert error when connecting, but I have no issues connecting using
the same client (I am on Linux, however the person with the issue is on
