Browsers keep warning about localhost being unsafe

Wampserver 3.2.0 64bit. Windows 10 fully updated.

In spite of having installed SSL which seems to be all working fine, all browsers keep warning about localhost being unsafe even though https is specified in the address.

How can I stop these warnings please?

Hi,

> How can I stop these warnings please?
This is because you are using a self-signed certificate. Most browsers are paranoid.
Use Firefox
See item 7 of Wampserver 3 - Some explanations
Where to store the various certificates:

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Wampserver 3.2.5 32 bit - Apache 2.4.46d - PHP 8.0.3…5.6.40 - MySQL 5.7.33 - MariaDB 10.5.9
Wampserver 3.2.5 64 bit - Apache 2.4.46d - PHP 8.0.3…5.6.40 - MySQL 5.7.33/8.0.23 - MariaDB 10.5.9
PhPMyadmin 5.0.4 - MysqlDumper 1.24.5
on W10 and W7 Pro 64 bit

Thanks for that. I'll have a good look at the information and try to implement it.

Later: Followed that through and now have everything working fine. Set Firefox and Opera to accept the SSL cert.
