VCV Rack site certificate had expired, now fixed.

So the SSL cert for seems to have expired today. The github action uses curl to download the rack sdk, but it is reporting the cert has expired. I can tell curl to ignore the expired cert but that seems less than ideal long-term.


That’s affecting log in from within Rack.

Yes. I’m getting a warning in Chrome about the cert and the page style of the Rack homepage was like a flashback to a 1993 Mosaic page.

Where’s the scrolling banner?

We’re aware of it and are looking into it.


Can’t log in and VCV Rack says “Could not query user account”

I’ve used my password and still no luck, it worked fine yesterday not today can’t log in…

LetsEncrypt auto-renew scripts are a PITA. That’s why these days I put everything behind Traefik and let it take care of bi-monthly auto-renew for me (and handle best-practice SSL configurations etc.).

The first scrolling banners I remember were when we got a copy of a Java IDE named Visual Cafe at work in 1996, adding a scrolling text banner was one of the code examples. I’m sure loads did it before then but maybe I’ve managed to erase them from my mind, gone, like so many BLINK tags in the rain.
