Renewing our certificate

By on May 4, 2016

It’s almost time to replace our main bitbucket.org certificate, so we’re planning to do that at 00:00 UTC on May 6 2016.

Most users shouldn’t notice any difference. However, if you’re using Mercurial over HTTPS, then you might see this error message after the new certificate is installed:

abort: certificate for bitbucket.org has unexpected fingerprint
3f:d3:c5:17:23:3c:cd:f5:2d:17:76:06:93:7e:ee:97:42:21:14:aa
(check hostfingerprint configuration)

If you do see that error, you’ll need to update the host fingerprint for bitbucket.org in your ~/.hgrc or Mercurial.ini configuration file:

[hostfingerprints]
bitbucket.org = 3f:d3:c5:17:23:3c:cd:f5:2d:17:76:06:93:7e:ee:97:42:21:14:aa

Happy branching!

    I’ve made this change but am still getting the error message. I’ve updated all of my hgrc files and my mercurial.ini. I’m on Windows and am using TortoiseHG.
