git error: Issuer certificate is invalid


I've installed stash and wanted to import an existing git repository into stash, but I get this error when I run git push origin master:

error: Issuer certificate is invalid. while accessing https://user@host:1234/abc.git/info/refs
HTTP request failed

Whats wrong here?

Thanks :)

Hi there.

This is probably a problem with the SSL Certificate.

I can't tell you exactly what is the problem but you can disable SSL Checks on the git client to finish the push:

  • git config --global http.sslVerify false

Please let me know how it goes.

Hey, it works with git config --global http.sslVerify false. I think, this is because we used a self-signed certificate. Is there a solution to use git with a self-signed certificate? thanks :)
