Verisign ssl certificate issue

We recently switched from GoDaddy SSL certificate to Verisign’s.
Installation on Nginx went well.

Some users and browsers are reporting that the “certificate was signed
by an
unknown authority”.

You can try this by going to https://www.spellingcity.com.

It doesn’t seem that we had this issue with the GoDaddy certificate…
is
there anything else I need to do with Nginx SSL configuration to make
this
issue “go away” or is this strictly a Verisign issue (I am contacting
them
as well).

Thanks

Currently you have this cert chain:

openssl s_client -connect www.spellingcity.com:443


Certificate chain

Thanks Igor, problem solved, turns out I needed to add the Verisign
intermediate key.

I believe that’s correct.

So before you chain was just:

0 s:/C=US/ST=Florida/L=Fort Lauderdale/O=SpellingCity.com, Inc./OU=Terms
of use at www.verisign.com/rpa ©05/CN=www.spellingcity.com
i:/C=US/O=VeriSign, Inc./OU=VeriSign Trust Network/OU=Terms of use at
https://www.verisign.com/rpa ©09/CN=VeriSign Class 3 Secure Server
CA - G2
