greetings!

thanks for sharing the useful service for sll certificate testing.

 

i ran the process for my site - results are here: https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/analyze.html?d=infiniteeureka.com

 

i have been finding that the https connection is very slow on my site (sometimes 6 seconds or longer) ..

although sometimes the connection is quite fast. so far i have not discovered why there is such wild difference in connection times.

 

i saw in the report that CRL error is listed against the intermediate certificate and i saw in another discussion thread somewhere that i may not need to use an intermediate certificate at all for startssl.. is that correct?

 

i have found these 2 pages to be helpful in comprehending other causes as to why the connection is slow:

i have not yet gone as far as to rebuild the server with these tweaks included.

 

any tips and advice greatly appreciated.
