Help needed with iFolder 2.1.8 on Netware

My iFolder server stopped working and I need help getting it going
again. It is an iFolder 2.1.8 on Netware installation. Yesterday,
clients suddenly stopped being able to authenticate. I tried restarting
the server and now iFolder doesn't seem to even load on the server. I
think there was a message about possible expired certificates, but I am
not able to supply more details unless I can get it to load again. Can
someone tell me what I need to do to determine the cause of the problem
and get things working again. Thanks.

Well, there is that err-file in th Apache log directory. Your error is
however most likely as epired certificate. They have a 2-year lifespan as
default. Just run PKIDIAG. Log in as admin, change from disgnostic to
fixing mode, then run. It will fix your certificates. You might need to
run it multiple times, but it will tell you what it can and cannot fix.
