Server certificate verification failed

Got the following issue when trying to commit changes to SVN server:

svn: OPTIONS of ‘’: Server certificate verification failed: certificate issued for a different hostname, issuer is not trusted (

I’m using svnX, and it seems there is no way to get around this issue. I searched the web but found no solution.

Finally, I tried to update the svn working copy in terminal:

$ svn up

Error validating server certificate for ‘’:

– The certificate is not issued by a trusted authority. Use the

fingerprint to validate the certificate manually!

– The certificate hostname does not match.

Certificate information:

– Hostname: langui-server

– Valid: from Wed, 20 Apr 2011 15:08:48 GMT until Thu, 19 Apr 2012 15:08:48 GMT

– Issuer:

– Fingerprint: e6:52:b9:b6:f2:35:68:6c:cd:93:ef:b2:f3:15:02:dd:85:2b:1f:28

(R)eject, accept (t)emporarily or accept (p)ermanently? p

At revision 49.

Then try agin with svnX, it works!

  1. SvnX 1.3 has built-in support for SSL (https:) certificate authentication.
