RE: Server Certificate Chain
I have read that and I have set a bundle of my Root/Child CA included with
the TLSCACertificateFile directive.
My TLS configuration is as follows:
Anyway if I do not include the Child CA certificate in the appropriate
stores at the client side the server certificate could not be verified.
I have tried to get some more info with openssl (openssl s_client -connect
hostname:636) and it returns that there are no client certificate CA names
