Today, Japanese WordPress develop members announced they brought the new Japanese version WordPress for us, according to the Codex for Version 3.7, there are tons of changes.
My WordPress is a multisite type and the parent site language is English. Probably for this reason, the WordPress Updates page does not show me the Japanese version update message.
So, I downloaded wordpress-3.7-ja.zip manually and upgraded.
In the wp-includes folder, I found a certificates folder which contained a ca-bundle.crt. The ca-bundle.crt is for the below.
## ca-bundle.crt — Bundle of CA Root Certificates
## Certificate data from Mozilla as of: Sat Dec 29 20:03:40 2012
## This is a bundle of X.509 certificates of public Certificate Authorities
## (CA). These were automatically extracted from Mozilla’s root certificates
## file (certdata.txt). This file can be found in the mozilla source tree:
## It contains the certificates in PEM format and therefore
## can be directly used with curl / libcurl / php_curl, or with
## an Apache+mod_ssl webserver for SSL client authentication.
## Just configure this file as the SSLCACertificateFile.
I have no error about this upgrade, but I have a warning about the site “o6asan’s netradi” like the below.
Warning! Problem updating https://MySiteName. Your server may not be able to connect
to sites running on it. Error message: SSL certificate problem: self signed certificate in
But I can log in the site. About using “SSL certificate: self signed certificate in certificate chain”, my sites are all in the same condition. But, on the site, I use a streaming server. I think the warning happens due to this situation. As pointed out above, the new version of WordPress gives us “Bundle of CA Root Certificates”, so, should I make a new certificate by it? I don’t get it exactly. If someone knows about the warning, please tell me in detail.
Anyway, I completed the upgrade.
I slightly concern about one of the new features of version 3.7 that is automatic updates for maintenance and security updates. But I think it’s probably O.K. because the automatic updates are only for maintenance and security updates. There are no differences between JP version and global version about such minor update. Am I right?
I wrote a new article about the ca-bundle.crt.
By the way, if you have the “Warning! Problem updating https://SITENAME. Your server may not be able to connect to sites running on it. Error message: SSL certificate problem: self signed certificate in certificate chain.“, please try Oiram’s workaround (PDF version).
I wrote an article The solution of “SSL3_READ_BYTES:sslv3 alert handshake failure” on WordPress.
