Node.js Question

Failed to load resource: net::ERR_INSECURE_RESPONSE socket.io

I am connecting to a port on my server via ssl... recently i have started to get Failed to load resource: net::ERR_INSECURE_RESPONSE error on chrome while connecting to the node.js+socket.io server.Here is my server setting up code:

var fs = require('fs');
var express = require('express');
var routes = require('./routes');
var https = require('https');
var path = require('path');
var socketio = require('socket.io');
var util = require('util');
var url = require('url');
var privateKey = fs.readFileSync('ssl/keys/xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.key', 'utf8');
var certificate = fs.readFileSync('ssl/certs/xxxxxxxxxxxxxx.crt', 'utf8');
var credentials = {key: privateKey, cert: certificate};
var sizeOf = require('image-size');


var DBWrapper = require('node-dbi').DBWrapper;
var DBExpr = require('node-dbi').DBExpr;
var dbConnectionConfig = { host: 'localhost', user: 'user', password: 'password', database: 'dbname' };
dbWrapper = new DBWrapper( "pg", dbConnectionConfig );
dbWrapper.connect();

var app = express();

app.set('port', process.env.PORT || 8080);
app.set('views', path.join(__dirname, 'views'));
app.set('view engine', 'jade');
app.use(express.logger('dev'));
app.use(express.json());
app.use(express.urlencoded());
app.use(express.methodOverride());
app.use(app.router);
app.use(express.static(path.join(__dirname, 'public')));

app.get('/', routes.index);


var server = https.createServer(credentials,app).listen(app.get('port'), function(){
console.log("Express server listening on port with https " + app.get('port'));
});

var io = socketio.listen(server);


What am i doing wrong?

Edit:
This is how i connect on client side:

socket = io.connect("https://website.com:8080", {'reconnect': false});

I had a similar issue when using an offical, not self signed certificate and I just found the solution. It only failed in chrome on Android, btw. Add the certifate chain to the options object of the https.createServer method:

var hskey = fs.readFileSync('/the_key.key');
var hscert = fs.readFileSync('/the_cert.pem')
var ca = fs.readFileSync('/The_CA_bundle.pem')

var credentials = {
    ca:ca,
    key: hskey,
    cert: hscert
};

var server = https.createServer(credentials,app).listen(app.get('port'), function(){
  console.log("Express server listening on port with https " + app.get('port'));
});

Just putting it here, to prevent someone else banging his head against the wall when having a similar issue.
