Since my new MacOS Catalina setup I bumped into multiple Trellis issues. Issues with loading the proper interpretor as well as loading the proper Ansible version for the setup. Final issue I had now was dealing with failed SSL certificates and to be more specific NET::ERR_CERT_REVOKED .


So how to deal with this NET::ERR_CERT_REVOKED error? Let’s first look at the error in more detail. We have the following:

Your connection is not private
Attackers might be trying to steal your information from domain.test (for example, passwords, messages, or credit cards). Learn more
Subject: domain.test
Issuer: domain.test
Expires on: Nov 14, 2029
Current date: Nov 17, 2019
PEM encoded chain:-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----

So somehow the certificate is being revoked . This either has to do with Catalina or Chrome being stricter on local self signed certificates with locally generated authorities. So what to do about this?

Trellis Cert Trust Vagrant Plugin

Well after some Googling I bumped into this Github thread on the same SSL certificate issue. And I found out that there is a Vagrant plugin that can deal with the browser no longer accepting locally set certificates as it did before. Simply install it and run it inside the trellis directory:

vagrant plugin install vagrant-trellis-cert
vagrant trellis-cert trust

And yes, now you can run the site again with the generated SSL certificate and now you are no longer blocked by the browser!
