In some cases, you may have to install an intermediate VeriSign certificate to extend the lifespan of an expired certificate:

The intermediate certificate can be easily installed by concatenating it to the original certificate in the cert.pem file. When you are copying the intermediate certificate from your certificate vendor and pasting it to your cert.pem file, make sure that you have removed any extra line feeds and hidden characters. Below is an example of the cert.pem file after the intermediate certificate is appended to the original certificate.

Note: This is a non-working certificate.
