dbContext.SaveChanges(); error

After looking at this problem for quite a few days, I don't know if the error is related to SQL code, or specifically to being able to store a new record in an SQL Server database.

Everything seems to go fine(though I cannot tell) until the following statement:


I keep getting the following error message:

Microsoft.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: 'A connection was successfully established with the server, but then an error occurred during the login process. (provider: SSL Provider, error: 0 - The certificate chain was issued by an authority that is not trusted.)'

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

One idea:

The certificate chain was issued by an authority that isn't trusted - SQL Server | Microsoft Learn

I added "TrustServerCertificate=True;" to the connection string, and I get the same result.
Any other ideas as to how to eliminate the problem?

Have you confirmed that your certificate is still valid? That it hasn't expired or been revoked by the certificate authority? That the certificate authority hasn't been revoked?


That's dated a month ago, there may be more recent ones.
