"Clock Error"?
Posted by: Surfrider

Mini OSX 10.8.5

When I try and go to certain websites I always use, I started getting this message...but only for some website...
"A private connection to orderacc.com can't be established because your computer's date and time (Tuesday, November 16, 2021 at 10:42:38 AM) are incorrect."

Very perplexing.

I use this version of the OS because it allows me to use my old copy of Photoshop and Illustrator.

It has a blue button to push when this message comes up, it says 'Update date and time", when I press on it it takes me to the "date and time" System Preferences, but from there offers no guidance.


TIA.

If you don't have problems with other SSL configured sites (httpS ) then these sites have certificate problems or clock problems on their own. Macs are default configured to synch time and date from central servers.

Maybe look for cookies from orderacc.com and delete all of them. Perhaps that website has the wrong time.

Also scan for malware. I am not sure which tools are good these days. Back then we used malware bytes and etrecheck.

Maybe it's time to stop letting the tail wag the dog…

While I don't disagree, I wonder why this wasn't an issue, then it was a big issue?

because the clock on that web site got set up wrong or the security certificate expired. Just remove that cookie and see if that helps.

1. Yes, if your system clock drifts too far off then your browser will not be able to validate certificates.

2. But if the date and time appear correct then the problem is almost certainly expired root certificates and the browser is just throwing up the wrong error message.
