Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have a dedicated server with a wiki and want to secure it so nobody can read my articles by sniffing my pages.

I do not want to pay for a valid certificate so I created a self-signed certificate. But always when I access my page through HTTPS I get a SSL Error with the following message:

The site's security certificate is not trusted!

How can I manually add the certificate to my trusted certificates or prevent that message from showing?

This is my server and I trust the certificate as long as it does not change.

You can bring the certificate management interface from Options / Preferences > Under the hood > Manage Certificates.

This will mostly just add it to the local users store, not to the system / computer store! You'll get the problem again and again for each user! How to add to System store in windows, have a look at superuser.com/questions/370217 –  childno.de Oct 23 '14 at 11:00

Since Chrome v38 there is an experimental feature to autosave the certificates previously accepted.
