File Exporter Not Working -

On August 15, salesforce.com changed its security certificates on all production servers from ones signed with the SHA-1 hash algorithm to new certificates signed with the SHA-256 hash. THIS BREAKS FILE EXPORTER (and maybe some other api connections). You get a message like this:

apex dataloder failed to send requires to https://login.salesforce.com/u/api/17.0

The solution is simple, although somewhat hard to find.

Follow the steps here - https://help.salesforce.com/apex/HTViewSolution?urlname=HTTPS-Security-Certificate-Switch-from-SHA-1-to-SHA-256-hash-algorithms&language=en_US

It takes about 5 minutes.
