Really Simple SSL

Protect SSL generation directories

Protect SSL generation directories

this warning occurs when your SSL certificate files aren’t protected. This happens when Really Simple SSL has created an ssl/certs and ssl/keys directory in your websites root folder. The public certificate (*.crt) being available is not an issue, it’s the private key (*.key) file that needs to be protected. To fix this issue, you can modify the file permissions to 644 for the .crt file and 600 for the .key file. You might have to ask your hosting provider to do this for you. Once this has been done, you can safely dismiss the notice.
