I'm having problems accessing the site in firefox
If I search for "wilmott forum" and get taken to https://forum.wilmott.com/ everything isgood

But if I try to go to https://www.wilmott.com/ or http://www.wilmott.com/ I get an error message and cannot access the site

Thanks. 

We have short-lived https certificates which means that we need to renew them often.  The forum certificate expired yesterday and the automatic renew somehow failed.

Just renewed them and everything should be fine now.
