Browser Warning on Self-Signed SSL

It is common to receive a warning from browsers if you are using a self-signed certificate. You usually see this warning when you are accessing your web panel or file manager. Do not worry.  Your browser is just simply saying they don’t recognize your SSL certificate because it is not issued by a Certificate Authority.
