I had heaps of trouble installing the chained certificate from  
XMPP.net on Openfire

You can get a single root certificate cheaply by purchasing a cheap  
chained one from GoDaddy using the SSL promo codes that get it down to  
$13.00 and then go to RapidSSL who do a free competitor SSL exchange  
to trade it in and you get a single root SSL from them.

This may work with the chained certificate from XMPP so you could  
potentially get a single root SSL for free.

Thanks, Florian! :)

This is nice but not necessary.

That's a bigger problem.

That's a really big problem. We accept only services that are
TLS-protected using CA-issued certificates. You can get free certs at
https://xmpp.net/ so there is no excuse for self-signed certs...

Thanks for your comments, I will send another request when the site  
will be complete, and i'll get a certificate.
