    SSL Cert on apply2.ucas.com expired this morning

    In case you get "I can't get to UCAS" problem reports, it appears they've let the certificate lapse.

    Seen the same here Reported it to them at 09:02 after one of our staff mentioned it in a helpdesk call.

    Seen our LEA let their SSL certs die as well...took 3 weeks to get a new cert during which time I blocked access to the site.

    Even Microsoft suffered a worldwide Azure outage due to an expired certificate. It's one of those things that seems so trivial that people literally forget to document the date on which they need to renew it and set a reminder.

    What really surprises me are the reputable cert providers who don't issue automatic reminders (*cough* Verisign *cough*).

    Not the first time I've seen an exam board or governmental body do this...

    My thoughts exactly! It's as if they don't want our business...

    Our LEA has just posted an item on their noticeboard. The relevant content on the post is as follows:

    ...as it is the “Apply” landing page which fails to load, the following links can be used to bypass the ‘Apply’ page:Staff Apply:

    https://apply2.ucas.com/staffapply2013/LoginServlet for 2013

    https://apply2.ucas.com/staffapply2014/LoginServlet for 2014

    Student:

    https://apply2.ucas.com/appreg2013/SecurityServlet
    for 2013

    https://apply2.ucas.com/appreg2014/SecurityServlet for 2014

    Hopefully this will work for you...
