Problem

The following is seen on the command line when pushing or pulling:

SSL Certificate problem: unable to get local issuer

Cause

This error occurs when a self-signed certificate cannot be verified. 

Workaround

Tell git to not perform the validation of the certificate using the global option:

git config --global http.sslVerify false

Resolution 

There are several ways this issue has been resolved previously. Below we suggest a possible resolution that should be run on the client side:

A. Ensure the root cert is added to git.exe's certificate store.

B. Tell Git where to find the CA bundle by running:

git config --system http.sslCAPath /absolute/path/to/git/certificates
or copying the CA bundle to the /bin directory and adding the following to the gitconfig file:


sslCAinfo = /bin/curl-ca-bundle.crt


C. Reinstalling Git.

D. Ensuring that the complete CA is present, including the root cert.
