Hi Baran,

I've checked the server log. It says:

error FetchError: request to https://maskor.fh-aachen.de/bibbase/pubs.bib failed, reason: unable to verify the first certificate

It seems that the signing authority that issued your server's SSL certification (DFN-Verein Global, Verein zur Foerderung eines Deutschen Forschungsnetzes e. V.) is not recognized by the http library we use, which is just the built-in http library of node.js. Indeed, curl says the same:

> curl https://maskor.fh-aachen.de/bibbase/pubs.bib
curl: (60) SSL certificate problem: unable to get local issuer certificate
More details here: https://curl.haxx.se/docs/sslcerts.html

curl failed to verify the legitimacy of the server and therefore could not
establish a secure connection to it. To learn more about this situation and
how to fix it, please visit the web page mentioned above.

I recommend getting a new SSL certificate from an authority that is widely accepted, e.g., a free one from Let's Encrypt.

Hi Christian,

thank you for the quick response. 

I had trouble to find out wat it was.

That helped a lot.

Thank you very much for the support
