If you have generated a self signed certificate on windows you may want to trust that certificate to avoid getting certificate warnings when you navigate to your URL in internet explorer or chrome. It is important to note that you should only trust a certificate if you are 100% sure of it’s origin.
Open internet explorer as an adminsitror.
Navigate to the URL where your self signed cert is, in our case https://localhost.
When prompted remove click to continue to the website
Click where it says “Certificate Error” and then view certificate.
Click install certificate
In the screen that appears select local machine and next
Select “place all certificates in the following store” and click browse.
Select Trusted Root Certificate Authorities and click ok
Then click ok, next and finish.
Restart internet explorer.
Navigate to your website again, the certificate will now be trusted.
