The verify cname value just changed randomly

Recommended Posts

Hi all, after having a stable site for about 3 months, the SSL certificate failed today.

I dug around and saw that the verify value for the CNAME DNS record had changed from what it was originally. After disconnecting and re-connecting with the revised value, SSL was activated again and is now fine.

I couldn't find any documentation that suggests that the verify value is reset periodically. Is this something I should be aware of?

The ‘verify’ value should only change if you disconnect the domain and reconnect it.

That's what I would have thought.

Do you know of any other reason why SSL certificate would suddenly stop working and change to "unavailable"?
