StartSSL - HTTPS failure - permission denied

StartSSL - HTTPS failure - permission denied
Starting ~ Jun 15, https began failing with a "permission denied" 0216e93c error. The certificate in use is valid and from StartSSL (granted not a tier 1 provider).

a) This permission denied language is a poor choice for this condition. This leads someone to believe there are permission problems at the file level and not a failed cert check. If the request is denied because of the certificate and not file permissions then I suggest the language indicate same in some manner. The ambiguity of "permission denied" is too vague.

b) It might be necessary for to update / have a look at their CA repo. StartSSL and LetsEncrypt should probably be added in a more persistent manner.

Many thanks,
