Julia doc: SSL error and Google still indexing 0.4.8 documentation better than 0.5 (or "latest")

proposal

#1

Just a feedback for the website managers: when looking for some Julia documentation in Google, Google still shows up the 0.4.8-pre documentation rather than the latest one, e.g.:

Is there way to “suggest” Google to point by default to the latest documentation ?

** Got it **… the reason is that 0.4.8 uses http://docs.julialang.org, while 0.5 uses https://docs.julialang.org, but the later one is configured with a certificate for for githug, not julialang:

docs.julialang.org uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate is only valid for the following names:
www.github.com, *.github.com, github.com, *.github.io, github.io, *.githubusercontent.com, githubusercontent.com

Error code: SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN

Nowadays you can get a free SSL certificate very easily using Let’s Encrypt.

Thanks for figuring that out; I was wondering why this was the case as well. Maybe open an issue at https://github.com/JuliaLang/julia/issues?

This is a known issue and very non-trivial to fix. https://github.com/JuliaLang/julia/issues/21078
